Being the only girl of six children in Texas in the early twentieth century is not easy. Calpurnia Tate's mother wants her to learn things of "ladies" : learning to cook and sew, behave properly, stop getting into fights and playing the piano. But she enjoys going to observe nature and then collecting specimens to show her grandfather, the only one interested in the wanderings of Callie. What's more, he will give her a copy of The Origin of Species and a notebook to apply the scientific method to her comments. But this is not all that Callie observes around her, her family is also living small epiphanies. Some brothers fall in love and they break her heart, others will not stop getting into altercations and another do not want in any way to kill the turkey for thanksgiving ... A novel soft and charming, hilarious at times, which is to captivate readers of all ages.

Ser la unica chica de seis hermanos en la Texas de principios de s.XX no es facil. La madre de Calpurnia Tate quiere que aprenda cosas "de senorita": aprender a cocinar y a coser, comportarse con propiedad, dejar de meterse en peleas y tocar el piano. Sin embargo ella disfruta saliendo a observar la naturaleza y recogiendo especimenes que luego mostrara a su abuelo, el unico interesado en las andaduras de Callie. Es mas: le regalara un ejemplar de El origen de las especies y un cuaderno para que aplique el metodo cientifico a sus observaciones. Pero esto no es lo unico que Callie observa: a su alrededor, su familia tambien va viviendo pequenas epifanias. Unos hermanos se enamoran y les parten el corazon, otros no pararan de meterse en altercados y otro no querra de ninguna manera que maten al pavo reservado para accion de gracias... Una novela tierna y encantadora, hilarante a ratos, que ha de cautivar a lectores de todas las edades.
