Dessa is a modern-day, 12-year-old with mysteries to solve and fossils to find. But when her family of three unexpectedly becomes a family of two, this smart, funny young scientist struggles with the changes. Dessa's comfort comes from a new friend, one only she can see and hear—19th-century paleontologist Mary Anning, who discovered a breakthrough dinosaur fossil. But why isn’t Mary’s portrait on the museum wall like her male counterparts? Dessa decides to fight to earn Mary the respect she deserves. With help from her classmate, Nilo, Dessa unearths secrets—for Mary’s legacy and her own way forward.
