Calpurnia Tate is an inquisitive and curious twelve-year-old girl growing up in Texas at the end of the year 1899. With the help of her grandfather, she is turning into an excellent young scientist. But this is not what girls are supposed to do at this time! Will she be able to follow her dreams and attend the university or be forced to take the expected route of becoming a proper homemaker? Could the turn of the century bring a change in Callie’s life as well?

This book would be good for those interested in reading what life may have been like for a young girl at the end of the 19th century who’s trying to find her identity.
