9781531818975: Significant Others

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.

From Publishers Weekly:

A plethora of social issues smothers an interesting story about an African American counselor struggling with her racial identity who falls in love with a biracial student's father. Persecuted by other blacks for her red hair and light complexion, Patricia Gilbert hesitantly begins an affair with Morgan Baxter, a black man who seems impervious to her concerns. As the relationship develops, a host of problems that involve the sketchily drawn high school students shifts the focus of the story. Despite obligatory love scenes, the romance founders in a sea of societal ills thrown out for the reader's inspection. A fairy-tale ending fails to redeem a promising novel that loses momentum from the sheer drag of too many ideas and too little development.
