Boarding school opens up a whole new world for Minerva. Prior to boarding school, she was pampered and sheltered. Her parents were protective.... they sheltered their daughters and kept them safe. Boarding school meant new friendships, different types of people, and completely new experiences. It also meant exposure to the outside world and the truth about the political climate she lived in.
