Leanne Statland Ellis

“Why wouldn’t the gods remove my scar and heal me? It made no sense that I should

suffer this way.” Twelve-year-old Micay walks around her fifteenth-century Incan

village shielding the scarred side of her face that inspired the cruel name Millay, or

“Ugly One.” She escapes to her huaca rock, avoiding the villagers who shun her. Her

world shifts dramatically when a stranger gives her a sorry-looking baby macaw. The

bird becomes her dear companion on a journey that ultimately leads her to a new role

as shaman in Machu Picchu’s Sacred Sun City. Told in an engaging storyteller’s voice,

this is a stirring tale of a girl who finds her own strength.

Leanne Statland Ellis was inspired to write this novel by several visits to Peru and to Machu

Picchu. She lives with her family—and teaches third through fifth grades—near Chicago, Illinois.

Because of her disfiguring scars, the Andean villagers call her
“Ugly One,” but Micay will earn herself a different name.
