Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming book they’re most looking forward to read :)
GUYS. Rebel McKenzie by Candice Ransom is a book that sounds like it’s going to be SO ME on so many levels. First of all, Rebel McKenzie wants to attend a summer camp where you dig up dinosaur bones. UHM YES. In another life, one where I was good at science and could handle dirt and heat, I would be an archeologist for real. Also, Rebel McKenzie sounds like it’s really going to let loose with the laughs and I can’t wait for that!

Rebel McKenzie wants to spend her summer attending the Ice Age Kids’ Dig and Safari, a camp where kids discover prehistoric bones, right alongside real paleontologists. But digs cost money, and Rebel is broker than four o’clock. When she finds out her annoying neighbor Bambi Lovering won five hundred dollars by playing a ukulele behind her head in a beauty contest, Rebel decides to win the Frog Level Volunteer Fire Department’s beauty pageant. Rebel may not be a typical pageant contestant, but how hard can it be? Rebel’s dramatic reading about life is the Pleistocene era is sure to blow away the competition. It turns out that winning a beauty pageant is harder than it looks. By the end of the summer, Rebel has learned a thing or two about her true calling that will surprise everyone–most of all, herself.
