AmericanMoreThis coming of age historical fiction novella is told from the perspective of a young White boy who wants his Black friend to be able to swim with him in the city pool.

But old customs die hard in a small segregationist Texas town. American segregation was supposed to end in 1964 with the passage of the Civil Rights Act. But in Texas, sometimes things happen a little slower. Slower like the delayed decree that slaves were freed by President Lincoln in 1863. News didnt reach Texas until 1865-known as Juneteenth. Follow two eleven year old friends in the summer of 1971 as they try to make sense of the world they live in.

The fence separating them is more than a metaphor for their lives inside and outside of The Pool.
