The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly

I thought this was a wonderful book that would appeal to many of my female readers.  It's about a young girl who lived in the Southern part of the United States at a time when women were treated differently then men.  Calpurnia is expected to learn how to sew, and cook, and knit.  But what she really wants to learn about is the natural world around her.  She loves science!  Luckily her grandfather sees her for who she is, and helps her to explore their similar interests.
