Publisher's Summary

In best-selling author Sandra Kitt's provocative urban romance, light-skinned Patricia Gilbert has spent much of her life passing as white, but her identity becomes much more complicated when she falls in love. With her youthful appearance and light skin, African-American high school counselor Patricia knows how it feels to be an outsider in her own world. And when a biracial 15-year-old boy becomes the target of neighborhood bullies, she's determined to help him. One of New York's most successful men, Morgan Baxter feels totally at home in a corporate boardroom. But being a single father to a troubled teenager is a far more daunting challenge. Patricia Gilbert seems to understand his son - and him. As Morgan and Patricia start seeing each other, he has no idea where the three of them are headed.
With insight and sensitivity, Sandra Kitt gives us a passionate and thought-provoking novel about family, race, identity, and romantic love.

Great Read

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.

Thought Provoking

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.
