The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate
For my independent reading project, I read The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly. I liked the book because of the characters' personalities, and how Calpurnia tests gender roles in the early 1900's by asking if she can go to college. I also really liked the style of writing, and the imagery, I could really picture everything that was happening. I'm not sure if I would recommend this book to others, because I wasn't happy with the plot/storyline. If part of our assignment would have been making a plot diagram for the book, I don't think I would have been able to because there isn't really a plot. It is more just telling small events and anecdotes that happened, but I really struggled to find any kind of rising action or climax. Overall, I liked the book, but I wouldn't recommend it for a project where knowing the plot is important.
