The background of this story is very interesting. To read about an artist who was born with spina bifida and how her life was affected by her parents, her doctors, and then the artists who pulled into their world. Reading about the challenges Riva faced because of her disabilities was touching. However, the way she presents herself makes her appear as a demanding and unpleasant person with whom to interact. I would think this would be a wonderful read for individuals who are struggling with physical disabilities of many kinds.
