The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

the evolution of calpurnia tate

5 stars!

Jacqueline Kelly delivers a delightful novel for all ages.  The characterization is sublime.

If you like… historical fiction, nature, young adult, unconventional heroines.

This touched my heart the first time I read it.  I was probably in middle school and I simply loved every second of Calpurnia’s journey.  I have a vivid memory of reading the description of Calpurnia’s grandfather’s hands and smiling, because I could see my own grandpa reflected there and it was a wonderful moment highlighting the impact of excellent writing.
