I haven’t read the book. But They made her eyes a big deal because there are people that try to say that only a white person can have blue eyes. Also when a dark skin person has blue eyes people will put comments under there picture explaining that it’s a disease. I mean it’s not that serious and shouldn’t need a disclaimer.
