"In 1963, as Kizzy Ann prepares for her first year at an integrated school, she worries about the color of her skin, the scar running from the corner of her right eye to the tip of her smile, and whether anyone at the white school will like her. She writes letters to her new teacher in a clear, insistent voice, stating her troubles and asking questions with startling honesty. The new teacher is supportive, but not everyone feels the same, so there is a lot to write about. Her brother, James, is having a far less positive school experience than she is, and the annoying white neighbor boy won't leave her alone. But Shag, her border collie, is her refuge. Even so, opportunity clashes with obstacle. Kizzy Ann knows she and Shag could compete well in the dog trials, but will she be able to enter?"--… (lisätietoja)

This was a really heartwarming read and I feel that it would fit in wonderfully while learning about African American history. I think that everyone can learn something from Kizzy Ann about staying true to yourself and fighting against the world's injustices. This story is written in a very unique way, as letters sent from Kizzy to Miss Anderson. I found this to be really charming, as it gives particular insight into the way that an African American girl may have felt during this tumultuous time in American history. However, this rhetorical technique also limits the detail included in the book. I am a person that likes books to include tons of detail so that I can really picture the plot and the characters in my head and this book didn't have that for me. ( )

I never thought I'd write to the teacher at the white school. I don't know as I've ever thought about the white school, really, before all this integration business got started. But here I am, fixing to go there come September.
--Chapter 1

This historical fiction novel tells the story of integration in a small town and how a young girl sees things. Kizzy Ann Stamps is a young girl of color who doesn't really want to go to the "white school". The book is set up as letters Kizzy writes to her new teacher and once school starts, a journal. Each chapter is a letter and later a journal entry. Kizzy loves to write and enjoys telling Miss Anderson all about her and her dog Shag in her letters.

Kizzy is very honest in her letters and expresses what she is feeling about whatever is going on in her life. As the story progresses, we see that Kizzy has a strong personality and sometimes speaks when she shouldn't and it gets her in trouble. But, Kizzy is also very smart, very determined and very resilient.

The author writes beautifully and really captures the voice of a young black girl during the time of segregation. At least as far as I can tell, being pretty far removed from that myself. I guess what I'm saying is, Kizzy is a compelling character and she seems real. Kizzy goes through some highs and lows. She is kept from doing some things because of the color of her skin, but she does break some barriers.

To me, this novel speaks of hope. How even though things seem set in concrete, there are always people with open minds who are willing to see the benefits of change. Of course there are those who are dead set against change, but that doesn't mean we stop trying to make life better.

Enough preaching. Here are some quotes that I especially liked.
I cannot believe the upside-downness of the world. One day your biggest problem is whether you feel like you can work with a man whose eyebrows are alive, and the next minute your problem is that your country's president is dead.
How can one man dying make the whole world hush?

He's my daddy, you know. But sometimes, I just don't know what's right. He'll do something and it feels, um, ugly or mean or something. I get mixed up then. I just don't always know what's right. You know what I mean?

The makeup didn't bring back the old me. It wasn't the old Kizzy Ann. It was just some other girl, someone I didn't know. It was a disguise, just a disguise.

I was not amazed at the hug from you -- I know by now that you really do love me even if you are white and I am not -- but when the crowd gasped, I thought we were in trouble.

I looked to my friends, my friends who were there for me, there with me, this finest moment in my life. I knew that it didn't matter whether we won any place at all. For that experience, on that course, I was an equal.
I enjoyed this book very much. Historical fiction seems to be growing on me. I used to think I didn't like this genre much. But, recently I've read several historical fiction books that touched me. It's always fun to discover something new that you enjoy.

Recommended to:
Readers in grades 3-5 that enjoy historical stories or stories about young girls overcoming odds. ( )

I loved the voice of Miss Kizzy Ann who is girl growing up in the south in 1963. She has an opportunity to go to an integrated school and decides to take it but it's really hard. She explains her life in a series of letters and journal entries. I really liked the fact that the it tells the story about what happens after integration-it wasn't just all kumbayah and holding hands. It was hard and people were still mean. I think this one would be great with some of the historical fiction of this time period, like Revolution by Deborah Wiles or Lions of Little Rock by Kristen Levine ( )

In my opinion I liked this book because of the honest nature of Kizzy Ann Stamps as well as how it follows a letter format. In each entry that Kizzy writes she is honest in her opinions and yet also knowledgeable about how others may feel about her honesty. This is present in the beginning of her writing when she writes to her teacher and hopes she is not offending her by saying the man is white. In addition, I also liked this book because of how it is organized as a letter correspondence. By having it in this style format, the reader is able to follow along with the story easily and reference events more quickly due to the date being used. The big picture of this story is to share the accounts of a young girl growing up with not only a physical difference on her face with the scar but also the color of her skin. It is important to remember our past so as to learn and grow from those mistakes. ( )

July 1, 1963 - Dear Miss Anderson, My teacher, Mrs. Warren, says I have to write you, and when Mrs. Warren says to do something, you do it. She has taught at the black school for thirty-seven years. My daddy does what she says, the preachers does what she says, and yo'd better believe I do what she says.

Her family's house, which is where our library is located, is dark in the rooms where she keeps the books, so they'll stay in good shape for longer. She has her life going on in that house amid the books. It's a busy place, a tumble of life and knowledge, fun and facts. (pp. 19-20)
I always need to get out and be alone on Christmas for some time on my own with Shag, and we take our time, meandering around until I can look back into the family faces. I know this seems a strange way to feel about a holiday, but Christmas sometimes settles in my chest until it feels like I will pop. (p. 123)
We're learning to trust, we are. The lessons we're learning together along this road are not the easiest, but once we have them, we "own" them, you might say. When I follow my Shag, it seems I follow my heart. I guess that will do just fine. (p. 181)
I don’t think trust has a color, but it sure must have a smell.
Losing a dream is a hard and very loud business.
