All the girls she knew had long straight hair that seemed so lively and fun, but KenKay’s hair was tightly coiled, very defiant, and unmovable. KenKay’s father was at a lost, being a single parent, his knowledge about girly matters were limited. He was more concerned with ensuring KenKay developed good morals and values that surpass the surface. Then one day a substitute teacher becomes a catalyst for change to an unhappy little girl.
