I finished "Ready to Fly" McKenna Brooks' 2nd book. I really enjoyed it, and I would give it a 4.5 overall.
I really love McKenna's overall character which is to just be yourself. I really like that. I really like how McKenna is willing to take the time to volunteer at Hearts and Horses, and how she supports her friends, no matter what decision they make.
What I don't like about McKenna's story is when McKenna went to Hearts and Horses, she is very uncomfortable with people with disabilities. I really don't like this and think American Girl should have left this out of the story. I think she really doubts people's ability to do things based on their disability. I don't think this is the way you should judge people, and while I know American Girl is trying to teach girls this, I think they could have approached the lesson in a different way.
If you read the McKenna books or have any of her things, I would love to see photos and/or see your thoughts on the McKenna books and items. Feel free to email reviews, or photos at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll be sure to post them on my website.
Have a great weekend,
PS: The Dolls have posted photos of Cecile on their page. Be sure to check it out! They have taken some snow photos that they would like to share as well... I don't know when that post is planned for, but I'll let you know if I hear anything!!
