The summer before her junior year, paleontology geek Natalie Page lands a coveted internship at an Ice Age dig site near Austin, Texas. Natalie, who's also a plus-size fashion blogger, depends on the retro style and persona she developed to shield herself from her former bullies, but vintage dresses and designer heels aren't compatible with digging for fossils. But nothing is going to dampen her spirit. She's exactly where she wants to be, and gets to work with her hero, the host of the most popular paleontology podcast in the world. And then there's Chase, the intern, who's seriously cute, and Cody, a local boy who'd be even cuter if he were less of a grouch. It's a summer that promises to be about more than just mammoths. Until it isn't. When Natalie's paleontologist hero turns out to be anything but, and steals the credit for one of her accomplishments, she has to unearth the confidence she needs to stand out in a field dominated by men. To do this, she'll have to let her true self shine, even if that means defying the rules and risking her life for the sake of a major discovery. While sifting through dirt, she finds more than fossils--she finds out that she is truly awesome.… (mais)

Well I had to get through probably forty percent of this before it started to redeem itself, but by the end I really enjoyed it. The book is about a girl who has issues with herself and loves paleontology, and the paleontology wins out over her issues by the end.

If I’d gotten around to reading this when it was published in 2018, I might not have had such a visceral reaction to all her weight issues (including guessing any woman’s weight in her head when she meets them—yikes); there’s a lot of triggering stuff here, and while it seems to be handwaved over by the end, it doesn’t negate the badness.

But the story itself was really interesting (lots of twists and turns and ups and downs) with a cute romance thrown in, so I guess hanging in there was worth it. ( )

I’ve wanted to read this book since I’d first heard about it! I loved the synopsis. It sounded so fun and I was excited to read about a girl who was into paleontology – and that cover caught my eye. It was so cute!

I definitely enjoyed this book. Natalie, the main character, was funny and charming, and I thought all of the paleontology stuff was so interesting. I loved reading about the dig site. And I liked reading about her fashion blog!

I enjoyed the romance, and I liked seeing Natalie become more assertive throughout the book. For some reason though this one tapered off somewhat at the end for me. Some of Natalie’s choices were frustrating, and I could see where she was coming from. But I think some of her decisions made me anxious because I felt like I could see the bad outcomes coming.

This was a fun, interesting story that was a bit uneven for me, but overall I enjoyed it. ( )

I enjoyed the book, the premise was interesting. I liked how passionate Natalie was about paleontology. Natalie's journey to self discovery, coming to terms about her relationships, and weight was interesting to read. I also really liked how Nathalie's blog posts were incorporated throughout the novel.

Mammoth wasn't exactly what I expected, but I have to say that I really enjoyed. First, I have to tell you that this is a young adult book. The blurb doesn't make that clear at all--in fact, even having read the book, it's hard to read the blurb and figure out how they might expect a reader to understand that the protagonist is in high school vs. college. Since there's nothing on my copy of the book that says "YA" or "Young Adult", there's no real way to know without beginning the book, which feels (to me) like a mistake. That actually isn't the only marketing issue I have to bring up up-front... if you can make yourself go from reviews alone, or only read the first half of the blurb, do it. The last paragraph of the blub works hard to give away both the one big twist (semi-predictable as part of it might be) as well as the resolution, which I find kind of ridiculous.

But, on to the story... which is a lot of fun. I don't read much YA outside of the fantasy realm, but this contemporary has great characters and fantastic to writing. Baguchinski did a great job of integrating the protagonist's love of science/paleontology in a meaningful way, and offering the details to make it all feel real. In other words, what's included is smart and well-researched in a way that took me back to the various spots where I've visited fossils and peeked into this part of the science world, and it all felt wonderfully real. True, there were some small believability issues on the logistics side--not enough chaperones, treating high schoolers too much like college kids, etc.--but I ended up being swept into the book and reading it in one sitting.

For a YA blend of great characters and science, I'd absolutely recommend it. And if you know a teenage girl, this book is worth passing on. I'm planning on handing it to my niece the next time I see her. So, all told, yes, I absolutely recommend it. ( )

This one was a quick read for me. I think that I liked the premise more than the actual book, which is disappointing. The protagonists weren’t that well developed and I felt the setting could have been more...articulated for lack of a better word. ( )

When I read books where characters continuously make poor choices, it irritates me and makes me feel bad for the character.

I did enjoy the romance and the science part of this book. I think there need to be more books with main enjoy science and learning. It was nice to see that in this one.

After finishing this book, I found that I was annoyed by the word 'awesome', it's said so much in this book that it starts to get tiresome.

I enjoyed this book, and thought the idea of mammoths was a cute theme.

I received an Advanced Reader's Copy in exchange for my honest review
