Kizzy Ann Stamps by Jeri Hanel Watts ( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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?"--

Kenyon feels guilty because he has bought a baseball glove with the money intended for Grandmother's 90th birthday present
Kizzy Ann Stamps by Jeri Hanel Watts ( Recording )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kizzy Ann Stamps is starting at a new school, the just-integrated public school, and she's worried. She's worried that the white students won't like her, and she's worried they'll stare at the scar that runs from the tip of her right eye to the corner of her smile, the scar a neighbor boy gave her, in a farming accident. Now this same boy won't stop following Kizzy and Shag, her beloved border collie, everywhere they go, even when they're practicing for an upcoming herding competition. Even though they have been training hard, Kizzy and her coach aren't sure they'll even let her, a black girl, enter the competition
