The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
The summer of 1899 is hot in Calpurnia's sleepy Texas town, and there aren't a lot of good ways to stay cool. Her mother has a new wind machine from town, but Callie might jjust have to resort to stealthily cutting off her hair, one sneaky inch at a time. She also spends a lot of time at the river with her grandfather, an avid naturalist, teeming with life--all you have to do is look through a microscope!
As Callie explores the natural world around her, she develops a close relationship with her grandfather, navigates the dangers what it means to be a girl at the turn of the century.
