Additional Notes

Review Quote*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!
Review Quote*"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." 
Review Quote*"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."
Review Quote*"Eden Royce's debut is a spellbinding southern gothic tale of bravery, family, and historic truths that need to be told.  Black Girl Magic has never been more powerful."
