About the Author
Alliah L. Agostini writes to spread joy, because we can always use more of it. She also knows firsthand how valuable it is for more people, young readers especially, to finally see themselves reflected on the page. Alliah founded and contributes to Grownesque, a blog and social media destination for Xennial women. She resides in New Jersey, where she enjoys impromptu dance parties and making up corny jokes with her husband and two children. She is a member of SCBWI and has an AB and MBA from Harvard.
Sawyer Cloud loves sunny days and music. Children's books she has illustrated include Jade Braves the Dark, Dear Mama's Loving Arms, Our Favourite Things, Earthbred, and Under the Mango Tree. If not drawing, she would be singing out loud in her room wearing her favorite fairy costume, and sharing the moment with her online friends. She lives in Madagascar with her family and two pets, Arya the dog and Potter the cat. Her dream is to travel and share her stories with the world.
"A well-contextualized American history of enslaved Black persons"
"An important look at Juneteenth history, made accessible for young readers."--Kirkus Reviews
