Freewater by Amina Luqman-Dawson

Since the creation of enslavement, people in shackles have resisted their bonds. We’re taught the North was the way to freedom, but it was not, by any means, the only way. Homer and his sister Ada ran away from their plantation into an inhospitable swamp and found the unthinkable, a thriving community of free Black folk. This Newbery winning book is so, so vitally important. Complex and timely, I read it all in one sitting.
