Our Small Faces ~ Jamie L. Moore

About the Book:

Selma and Zeke are two African American youth living in small town Northern California. As the novelette switches between their voices, they learn the limits of love, friendship and family. Feeling trapped by their community, the constraints of race and class weigh heavy on their lives. Jamie L. Moore explores the persistence of racism and how it forces these friends to question if the boundaries already set for them determine their fate.
