This book is about Kathering Wright. She was the sister of the Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, who were the men who had the first successful airplane flight in 1903. Katehrine was actually a teacher in Dayton, Ohio. Katehrine actually wtraveled with her brothers to help promote their invention of the airplane. She gave up her teaching career. She married a man later in life that she had actually meant when she was in college. Wilbur died and Orville was left to depend on his sister Katherine. This story was wonderful to read. I really didn't know much as all about Katehrine Wrightl. I think that so many people forget that the Wright brothers even has a sister. She was an important part of their life though. This is a great book for curious young adults who want to learn a little more about history.
