Kizzy Ann Stamps | [Jeri Watts]

Kizzy Ann Stamps

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. But 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. And though Kizzy and Shag have been training hard, Kizzy and her coach aren’t sure they’ll even let her, a black girl, enter the competition.

Publisher's Summary

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. But 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. And though Kizzy and Shag have been training hard, Kizzy and her coach aren’t sure they’ll even let her, a black girl, enter the competition.

In this tender - and often humorous - debut 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.

    Story
    "Kizzy has a great voice"
    If you could sum up Kizzy Ann Stamps in three words, what would they be?

    Feisty. Forgiving. Smart.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kizzy Ann's voice. In turns, humorous and heartbreaking.


    What does Quincy Tyler Bernstine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nice performance. Brings Kizzy Ann's voice to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Kizzy could not attend the state spelling bee even though she won the school bee because there were no hotels that allowed black people (an excuse) so the white, second-place winner got to attend instead.


    Any additional comments?

    Depicts the era and the setting without preachin' to the reader. Kizzy's love of her dog is relatable by many boys and girls. Very likable protagonist.
