Summer vacation cannot last forever and Jazzy had a hard time getting her mind ready for a new school year. Her whimsical brush and comb take her on a historical journey that gets her excited about school and changes her outlook.
With the summer ending, Jazzy finds herself, yet again, struggling to get out of bed and get ready for the first day of school. Endless hallways, books, teachers, homework... doomsday, so she thought. In the kitchen, the normal routine is already underway, her mother, Naomi has finished her early morning workout, prepared breakfast, and makes her way toward the stairs to wake Jazzy. Jazzy's decision to stay in bed a little longer causes a disaster of epic proportion and a very real experience she will never forget. At the behest of Brushin and Combs, her whimsical brush and comb who were passed down thru the woman in her family, Jazzy is instantly whisked from her bedroom, thru her vanity mirror, and into the harrowing first day of school for her great, great, great, grandmother Josephine in the year 1805. This emotional journey will be taken alone and without her everyday comforts. Within this change of scenery, Jazzy will be propelled into an era when education was not afforded to everyone. On this eye-opening journey to post-Civil War America, Jazzy sees, firsthand, how her ancestors experienced daily life. As Freedmen on the morning of their first day of school, their realities will shape Jazzy's future and change the course of her life forever. In this tale of incarnation, a modern-day pre-teen and her whimsical brush and comb, Jazzy is exposed to her family's past and the extraordinary people who made her future possible. Her choices and actions take her to the edge of time, to places unfamiliar where she will be challenged, inspired, and matured.
