"A poignant, necessary entry into the children's literary canon, Root Magic brings to life the history and culture of Gullah people while highlighting the timeless plight of Black Americans. Add in a fun, magical adventure and you get everything I want in a book!"--Justina Ireland, New York Times bestselling author of Dread Nation
"A terrific, wondrous glimpse of Gullah Geechee culture, richly detailed and inviting. Blending familial and ancestral lore with folk magic, Royce's novel set in a racist South, resonates powerfully. An original, compelling must-read." --Jewell Parker Rhodes, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Boys
"Royce pulls back a curtain and invites the reader to a world within a world, a place in time full of both danger and magic. You won't just read it; you'll live it."--Saundra Mitchell, author of Shadowed Summer and All the Things We Do in the Dark
