This sounds so fricking cool?? I love dinosaurs, y'all
Do yourself a favor and check this out. Natalie is the smart, tenacious, and relatable heroine we've been waiting for!
Official comments: Nerds and fashionistas, rejoice: Natalie is the unapologetically awesome heroine we've all been waiting for! Fresh and fun, this story is a love letter to paleontology, a great example of women in STEM, and a victory for anyone who's ever wanted to change what they see in the mirror. I can't say it enough: this book is a must-read!Unofficial comments: I fell hard and fast for this book. I was so excited to read it early thanks to the premise alone (hello, dino-loving nerd here!), but what made me love it so much more than I can describe was Natalie. Her voice, her determination, her insecurities, her talents--I felt like I really knew her, and I hope we get to see more of her in another book, because I'd gladly read about whatever she decides to do next! The mere fact that she's there narrating would make it interesting. I'm sure all authors gush about the books we blurb to some extent, but this truly is such a special book. I don't know how else to say it. The characters are all nuanced, and you will love them. The story takes some unexpected twists. You'll worry for, question, empathize, and cheer with Natalie throughout her adventure!Please, please read this book!
