Product Details

Praise

“The infectious joy of swing music comes across nicely . . . Cepeda’s colorful and richly textured full-bleed acrylic-and-oil paintings match the mostly upbeat mood . . . An appealing and informative composition”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Deans’s text shines a light on the racial, social, and gender boundaries the band crossed, while emphasizing the bond of sisterhood that these girls created because of their talent, mutual struggle, and love of swing. . . . Cepeda’s oil and acrylic paint illustrations . . . appear as if they might reverberate off the page at any moment.”—School Library Journal
 
“A heartening tribute to a group of pioneering, dedicated musicians.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“More than just a history of the band, this takes on a larger picture, including Jim Crow laws and how the Sweethearts helped break down both gender and racial barriers. . . . An appealing piece of American history.”—Booklist
