5.0 out of 5 stars child no longer 21 Mar 2001
By "msjamazonia" - Published on Amazon.com
Personally, I loved this book. Poor Talley falling for the bad boy. come on, girls, you know the old story. You say no, your heart says yes, you fight it it til you give in. It's love, it's life. It's crazy. It's real. It raises many new questions also in the readers mind about the skin their in, the life they lead, the lovers they have . . . . If you were Talley, you would fall to for the David with charms until you grow up and see the true thing-Victor Davis in this case-to be for you. :))

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 20 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Library Binding
A White Romance by Virginia Hamilton is about a black girl (Talley) who goes to an all black school called Colonel Glenn High until they start busing in white students. Talley doesn't think anything will change drastically, but she is so very wrong. Talley meets Didi, a white girl who becomes her best friend. Didi is dating Roady, a black boy, and Talley has her eyes on a white boy named David. Although Victor is in love with her, she won't have anyone but David. Didi tries to tell Talley she doesn't love David, but she decides not to listen until things take a turn for the worst.
I thought this book was very good and it teaches a lot of good lessons. The text was a little confusing at times, but other than that, I really enjoyed the book. I'd say it's a pretty easy read.
1.0 out of 5 stars A Real Disappointment 14 Mar 2014
By Debra Tucker - Published on Amazon.com
I thought this would be interesting, but I overlooked the fact that Virginia Hamilton wrote this crap. I like how before the actual book begins she gives acknowledgements to the people that helped. I also how the Protagonist realized that she had in a situation where you learn who your friends are. There are a few characters. This is a really example if you want to create a lot of characters who need to die/be scrapped and a few good characters. I was really irritated by how the everyone talked. I'm aware that many African Americans speak very unintelligently, but if you can stand to speak to them, you'll find a handful that don't. I'm also aware that there are a few European Americans with names and I've heard some of them try to sound black. Hale sounds like a horrible husband ,but his only saving grace is he sounds like an okay father. Towards the point David stopped liking the Protagonist, she was so whiny! She was bawling as if she's the first to explain a painful relationship. I'm aware that she loved him, but the way she handled it made me feel no sympathy for her whatsoever. Overall, you're better reading something by a different author.
