Tar Beach

Cassie Louise Lightfoot has a dream: to be free to go wherever she wants for the rest of her life.

One night in 1939, up on "Tar Beach"—the rooftop of her family's Harlem apartment building — her dream comes true. The stars lift her up, and Cassie Louise Lightfoot is flying over the city, claiming everything she sees as her own. Caldecott Honor Book Winner.
