Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This book is really great! it is about a 8th grader named Tom who loves Basketball, and his best friend Steve recommends they go see the girls Basketball game. They see a really skilled player who even wears the same scowl as Tom when they both play. Later in the book they become friends and shortly after more than that. I reccomend this novel for anyone who likes a book that has to do with racism or Basketball

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BlACK AND white i thought black and white is an amazing book. i love the saying black and white is all shades of grey. i also like the part when they went out and they didnt care if they make fun of them and his brother told them that they shouldnt date because he did that once and it didnt work out he felt mad about it but denis didnt care. also the most homourous part was when dennis bf's friend kept dating blond people and no he wants to date black people not trying to be raises

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You must read this book! I love and like this book because you learn so many things if your a basketball player or want to be a basketball player doesn't matter if you're girl or guy you still can read this. I love this book because the characters are diffirent colour. Denise is 12 years old and thomas usually called tom is 13 years old.Denise is black and tom is white. Tom and Denise start dating and their parents found out that Tom and Denise are dating, both of their parents said it won't be easy for you guys to date because you don't have same skin colour, but love wins they didn't give up. Sometimes the situation is tough for them and they almost give up their love. They love to play basketball and put sugar on the popcorn. This book is amazing and you better read this book called Black and White by Eric Walters.
