    " bad writing, poor character development, awful dialogue. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ciana | 2/2/2013

    " This is an interesting book that discusses passing in our current society. I found it interesting that the story of passing is still told as this cautionary tale of the performance of race. Its crazy that this world still places so much value on one's racial identity. "

    " A fast read. Entertaining. OK. "

    " Good quick read but predictable "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kas | 4/20/2010

    " I really liked this book. It really focused on an issue that occurs in black society. A black person "passing" as white to get ahead. I had to watch "Imitation of Life" again after reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Egypt Mckie | 7/8/2009

    " I wonder if people still are passing in 2008! Interesting. The book was ok. Nothing to write home about, but it kept my interest, plus I had to finish it because it was the book of the month for my book club. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/7/2009

    " I enjoy reading books that allow you to look into lives of people who might or might not have something to hide. This book allows you see what people think of other races when they think no one's looking. "
