The evolution of Calpurnia Tate, Jacqueline Kelly
This book is about a girl in the 1890s who is growing up with a whole bunch of brothers, but she has to be ladylike and learn how to cook and sew, but she really likes science. I loved this book, I have gotten it out of the library so many times! Five stars! I would reccomend it to ages 7 plus.
