In my book, Tiger Beetle at Kendallwood, the main character, Marcy Hankins, has an intense fascination with bugs. Well, insects to be more precise. She loves to spend her time hunting for, capturing, and studying different types of insects. (Tiger Beetle at Kendallwood is the 2nd title in the Norma Jean Lutz Classic Collection.)
How about you? Does this sound like your idea of a good time? Or does the very thought of bugs send you into orbit?
That would describe the reaction of Marcy’s twin, Cissy. The two are total opposite as Cissy can’t stand creepy crawlies!
Marcy’s Life Goal
Entomology is the scientific study of insects. An entomologist is a scientist who studies insects – which is exactly what Marcy would like to do as her life’s profession.
In Marcy’s hometown and small-school setting, her passion is somewhat misunderstood. It makes her different.
Her nickname is bug brain.
