I also had a hard time believing that Minni and Kiera would not have been confronted with the prejudice in the dress shop before and that the parents would not have done to work with Kiera and her reading deficiencies before age 11I also respect the author's viewpoint and her reasons for writing the book reasons that I might not fully appreciate I really enjoyed the trip to the museum and the deft way she worked in some history without being didacticI do wish the editing had bee
