“Two girls with straight black hair were arguing. The taller girl grabbed a doll from the small one, who cried out and tried to get it back, jumping up with her arms outstretched as the tall girl held it out of her reach.

Grace made a soft mew of distress. “Kiki is so mean to Mimi.”

Kiki grabbed the doll’s head and popped it off the body. Mimi shrieked. Kiki then pulled a leg off for good measure. Angry adult voices hollered from elsewhere in the house. Kiki threw the doll parts across the room, yanked Mimi’s hair, and darted out the door.”
