I really enjoyed this book. Wish there was more. Wanted a true family ending to this book. Need a Part 2 or an extended version. Thanks for a good read.
Significant Others is my first book by Sandra Kitt, which I found interesting and thought provoking. While I understand that racism is alive and well in 2015, I didn't realize that there was prejudice among different skin tones of African-Americans.
This book is almost 20 years old, which was obvious with the tech references but most shocking to me were the racial slurs used by blacks toward other blacks. However, it taught me (mostly Caucasian) that I still have a lot to learn about how others feel.
It was sad that the bi-racial teen Kent was pressured to choose between identifying with his white mother or black father, as if he loved one more than the other. Patricia, his high school counselor, was sympathetic to his feelings due to being a very light skinned black, often mistaken for white.
PS. I really hate the terms black and white, since they sound like total opposites, when we are all actually various shades of ivory, tan, and brown.
