It's all because her grandfather died on the top of the hill. That's why she went up there. That's how she found the bones.
Esme's home life is a bit odd. Her father, Harlan, disappears for a long time. Her mother, June Rain, withdraws into herself and rarely talks. She has a brother, Bo, and a grandmother, Bee who is good at finding things. In addition there are many other characters from the Texas town she lives in with quirky personalities.
The story really centers on Esme - finding her own purpose, finding the bones, finding her place in the family and coming to terms with it, and finding the dinosaur bones.
It was an okay book but I was left wanting more...
