Teaser: The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

 The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
by Jacqueline Kelly

from Goodreads:
The summer of 1899 is hot in Calpurnia Virginia Tate'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 just have to resort to stealthily cutting off her hair, one sneaky inch at a time. She also spends a lot time at the river with her notoriously cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist. It turns out that every drop of river water is 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 of living with six brothers, and comes up against just what it means to be a girl at the turn of the century.


  1. Sounds like a neat book! Also (not that it matters...) I think the cover is lovely! ;)

  2. I've had my eye on this one for a while. It looks fantastic, and I trust your recommendations, so I will definitely give it a chance.

  3. This one is sitting on my nightstand from the library. Going to pick it up soon!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
