Currently Reading: The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
by Jacqueline Kelly
Genre: Young Adult
I have been reading more young adult fiction lately, I guess I think my brain needs a rest from the serious stuff.
I am more than half way through this, and it seems charming enough. Not sure what the plot is though, or if there is one.
Calpurnia is a nearly 12 year old female who is the middle child (the only girl) of 7 siblings. She is coming of age in Texas in the year 1899 where corsets and 'coming out' are the norm. Calpurnia wants none of it, she fancies herself a naturalist and loves bugs, plants and her grandfather, who is also a Scientist of some sort.
