Kizzy Ann Stamps is starting at a new school, the just-integrated public school, and sheâs worried. Sheâs worried that the white students wonât like her, and sheâs worried theyâll stare at the scar that runs from the tip of her right eye to the corner of her smileâthe scar a neighbor boy gave her, in a farming accident.
But now this same boy wonât stop following Kizzy and Shag, her beloved border collie, everywhere they goâeven when theyâre practicing for an upcoming herding competition. And though Kizzy and Shag have been training hard, Kizzy and her coach arenât sure theyâll even let her, a black girl, enter the competition.
In this tenderâand often humorousâdebut novel, Kizzy Ann discovers that almost everyone has scars to bear and that with a dog at your side you can find the courage to face them head-on.
