Journey to Galveston Mr Barrington's Mysterious Trunk by Melodie A. CuateA struggle over a bowl of popcorn begins another time-travelling adventure for Nick, Jackie and Hannah. When Mr. Barrington's trunk magically appears on the Taylors' kitchen table, a family of slaves steps out, followed by a snapping dog. Jackie is mistaken for an escaped slave and kidnapped by a hideous man. Trying to save her, Hannah and Nick are transported back to June 1865 only to discover that even though the Civil War has ended months before, many Texas plantation owners still own slaves.
With the absorbing pace and historic detail that Mr. Barrington's Mysterious Trunk fans have come to expect, Cuate leads her protagonists, and her young readers, to the first Juneteenth.
