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.
