March 2017 NewGen Book of the Month.

In a Nutshell: Romancing the Bones | There’s rivalry, romance and skullduggery galore in this rip-roaring read following two epic expeditions to unearth an extraordinary dinosaur skeleton in the Badlands of early twentieth century America.

Rachel is the sharp-minded, snake-keeping daughter of Professor Cartland, chair of paleontology at Yale University. While she’s frustrated by the crippling confines of her era, Rachel’s passion for natural science knows no bounds and so she implements an inspired scheme to accompany her dad on a major expedition. Samuel is the son of volatile Professor Bolt, a self-taught fossil expert and collector. When Samuel first sets eyes on Rachel, he’s immediately drawn to her. She’s an enigma, unlike any other girl he’s ever met. Soon enough, their lives entwine when it turns out that they’re both seeking the same thing: the bones of the legendary Black Beauty dinosaur. As the rivalry between their feuding fathers intensifies, so too does their connection, and the double-crossing, dinosaur-loving duo surreptitiously meet, sharing updates on the progress of their respective endeavors as their relationship deepens. But all loyalties are well and truly put to the test when a real danger emerges…

The novel’s refreshingly original premise has been executed with lashings of elegance and energy, and the historical details about paleontology and Native American peoples are utterly engrossing - this truly is a treasure trove of adventure and romance. ~ Joanne Owen

Synopsis

Every Hidden Thing by Kenneth Oppel

Deep in the Badlands, embedded in rock and sand, lies the skeleton of a massive dinosaur, larger than anything the world has ever seen. For Samuel Bolt it's the dinosaur that could put him and his father into the history books. But Samuel and his father aren't the only ones on the trail. Rachel Cartland is dreading a future of housewifery or spinsterhood. But the Rex could be her ticket to finally explore her love of science and adventure. Samuel and Rachel are pushed closer together as their paths cross and the rivalry between their fathers becomes more intense. And with both after the same prize, any romance seems destined to fail. Can they find the skeleton-and with it a new life together-or will the rivalry tear them apart?
