Paperback / softback

Description

Winner of the middle grade STEAM Book PrizeOrdinary is what most people are and I am not.

I am not ordinary at all. I am a scientist. One stormy night, a group of villagers are struck by lightning.

The only survivor is a baby - Mary Anning. From that moment on, a spark is lit within her. Growing up poor but proud on the windswept Dorset coast, Mary follows after her father, hunting for fossils uncovered by waves and landslips: ancient creatures, turned to stone.

Ignoring other people's taunts, Mary faces danger to bring back valuable treasures to help feed her family.

But tragedy and despair is never far away. Mary must depend upon her unique courage and knowledge to fulfil her dream of becoming a scientist in a time when girls have no opportunities for such ambitions.

What will happen when she makes her greatest discovery of all...?With a factual section about Mary Anning, her life, and the discoveries she made.
