A Small White Scar
2008 Winner of the Dolly Gray Award for Literature School Library Journal comments, Starred Review. Grade 5-8–Since the death of their mother seven years earlier, Will, 15, has been responsible for his disabled twin. His desire to help on his father’s ranch, ride off to the rodeo, prove himself as a man, and escape being his brother’s caregiver is the pivot of the plot; the fact that Denny follows him, showing himself to be just as tenacious and stubborn as Will, drives the plot to another level. The unique bond shared by the boys is aptly described.
