Kathy Nuzum's debut novel, compared favorably to Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men, follows a set of twins: one bent on rodeo super-stardom and one content to follow behind. Will is sure of what the future holds for him, but he's not so sure what life holds for his twin brother Denny. The two are as different as night and day, but they both hold with them the memory of a small white scar.

    " The year is 1940. Since 15 year-old Will's mother died before his eyes seven years ago, he's been teacher, nursemaid and constant companion to his twin brother, who has Down's Syndrome. Despite his impressive skills, Will's convinced his father will never let him do "a man's work" or anything other than babysit his brother, unless Will forces the issue by signing on to work someone else's ranch after winning big at the rodeo. Forbidden to enter the rodeo when drought forces the father to shift their cattle to rented pasture, Will leaves anyway. Much to his chagrin, though, his . Desperate to start life on his own terms, Will runs away-Yup, it's another cheery selection by my friends at the Caudill Committee. "

    " 4.5 stars. YA. Will is 15-years-old, nearly 16. His cowboy skills are excellent. He is ready to be a man. But if he stays at the ranch he can't. His father has him constantly play "nursemaid" for his twin brother Denny who has Down's Syndrome. The big rodeo, for which Will has spent a year saving money for, is coming up very soon and Will is hoping not only to win every event and the Overall Prize purse but to use the rodeo as the opportunity to escape the ranch and Denny and, finally, begin living his own life. Hitch number one: his father reneges on his promise and refuses to let Will go. Hitch number two: when he leaves anyway, Denny follows him. Pretty decent story about the frustrations involved caring for a person with disabilities and not being able to prove yourself when you know you can do it. The very complicated feelings someone must have when the person you believe is holding you back is also your beloved twin brother. "

    " Will and Denny are twin brothers and alike in many ways. They share the same birthday but Denny is developmentally delayed. They live and work on a ranch. Their mother died when the boys were young. It seems to Will that his father expects him to just look after Denny and never allows him to do really work on the ranch. Will decides to run off and join the rodeo. A twist of events happens when Denny follows Will. "

    " 15 year-old Will has always looked after his twin brother, Denny, who has Down syndrome. Denny has been his responsibility since their mother passed away. Will feels the weight of this responsibility as he tried to find a way to compete in the rodeo. "

    " A Small White Scar was a rather simplistic story. The story was predictable. The plot was quite shallow. It was ok, but I have read better books. Historical fiction set in the old west is not my favorite style of writing. It was ok, but I enjoy books with more modern settings and a deeper plots. "

    " I loved the reader of this one a lot. The story was okay. I'm book talking this one next month since it's a Caudill. "

    " Good story. I am wondering what has prompted the run of books about brothers/sisters with disabilities. I would put in same category as Rules, and Al Capone Does My Shirts. "

    " I thought this was going to be a pretty good western book, but what I found was a character who would never stop complaining about how unlucky he is, and how no one understands him. "

    " Two teenage cowboy brothers - one is mentally handicapped; the other, who has been caretaker, wants his "own life" as a rodeo cowboy. Short read; good take on story of leaving home, growing up, family responsibility, following dreams, etc. Good resolution at end, unpredictable. Dead mother. "

    " Liked this book a lot, it's one of the Iowa Teen Award books. I had just a little bit of trouble placing the time period. It didn't feel quite right, but the story was good and it made me cry a bit at the end which is always a good sign. "

    " So far so good. Is it a story that needs to be told as historical fiction? "

    " I may reevaluate this book after I have had time to think about it. It was hard to get into. I loved the message at the end. I admire the author for having tread on new ground. There is a lot of depth for 180 pages. "
