Is this book about a real woman in STEAM?

A captivating look at the life of a modern-day fossil hunter who makes the find of a lifetime.

Wendy has an eye for the unusual and is skilled at finding things that others don’t see. On a middle school field trip, she spots one of those unusual things — it’s fossilized coral 100 million years old! Wendy’s thrilled! And soon, she gets hooked on hunting fossils. She decides to turn her passion into her career and becomes known as the “fossil whisperer” around the world. But it’s close to home where she makes her most amazing find: Wendiceratops!

Make no bones about it, a dinosaur species named after you is way cool! Kids will be wondering: what might be buried where I live?
