Inspirational story set in the 1950s about two young girls who, discouraged by the common racial prejudice of not being able to try on shoes in a shoe store, decide to create their own version of that market which is inclusive to all.
The girls' ability to change their world using ingenuity and industry makes for a particularly inspirational read.
