The Dragonfly Prophecy by Jacquelyn Castle is a wonderful book for young adults that takes you on a journey to another universe! As we begin the book and meet Lexi we are taken on an adventure into another dimension. As we get to know Lexi, her friends and her loves, we are taken through the mystery of why and how to travel to this unknown place. Lexi is torn between two mystery men. Who really knows what is best for her? We are rooting for Lexi to make the right choice in boyfriends and to become a superhero with her "gifts." We get to know all sorts of "heroes" with special gifts.
Ms. Castle has written a very tasteful adventure for young adults. The main character is very likeable and realistic. I liked the fact that the reader is brought into Lexi's world and we learn as Lexi learns about her "gifts" and what this alternate universe is all about. I felt as though I were watching a movie. Ms. Castle did a great job of mixing mystery and adventure into her book. I appreciate that Ms. Castle kept the characters honorable. Teens and preteens need role models that can be respected and Ms. Castle does a fine job of making these characters respectable and likeable. I would have enjoyed this book as a young adult and would feel comfortable recommending it to the young adults I know. I can see it as part of a future series of books with Lexi being the star of many future adventures.
