Just remembered this book because the name "Kit Carson" came up and I remembered I had read a book where the main character was a girl named "Kit Carson." I remembered she was in a beauty pageant, so I typed in "beauty queen," and there was the book. How did I remember that? Why didn't I remember it before.

I don't remember much more about this book, but I do remember I enjoyed reading.
