I really like Kenneth Oppel’s work–I had previously read the Airborn novels and loved those, so when I saw he had a new book out, I picked it up.
I went in completely cold–I knew nothing about it. I actually thought it was going to be science fiction-y! It is not–but it is an absolute delight,
Every Hidden Thing by Kenneth Oppel is a sweet book about two teenagers working with their fathers to find dinosaur fossils during the “Bone Wars” of the 1800s. It’s been described as “part Romeo and Juliet, part Indiana Jones”. I’m not sure I’d describe it as that. Kenneth Oppel has always done a good job with youth romances, and he did a great job here, again.
