Kameeka is locked in fierce competition with Jamara for the title of Hula-Hoopin’ Queen of 139th Street. On the day of the face-off, though, Kameeka’s mother needs her help getting ready for Miss Adeline’s birthday party. Can Kameeka balance both? Probably not.

I loved Kameeka’s passion and fierce competitiveness, but also her ability to apologize when it leads her astray. And in the end, she ends up more connected to the important people around her despite her mistake. (She is a kid, after all, they make mistakes sometimes! Just like grownups. ;)

I’m a sucker for an artist who has mastered facial expressions, and Brantley-Newton is an all-star on that front. Also keep an eye on the furniture in this one. You won’t believe how much detail she’s included.
