Starring a likable girl named Cassandra, Weatherford’s debut introduces readers to Juneteenth, which commemorates the events of June 19, 1865. On that day Texas slaves learned about their emancipation-an astonishing two and a half years after Lincoln signed the proclamation. Festive and full of mirth, [Buchanan’s] fluid, motion-packed lines put a visible spring in her characters’ steps, and her palette is as summery as lemonade and blue skies.
