Shanice Stevenson is a great singer--so good that she once sang lead for the talented garage band she and some friends have successfully pulled together. But when beautiful, blonde Jenna Rose Brinley takes over as lead, Shanice is content to step out of the spotlight--that is, until her cousin moves in. Tonya, troubled by a family divorce, teases the biracial Shanice about her lack of black friends and convinces Shanice that her replacement as lead singer was due to race. Soon, Shanice rejects her friends from the band--until in a time of crisis, she finds nowhere else to go. Relevant and current, The Backup Singer shows teens that God's love and true friendship can resolve the tensions of society.

The Backup Singer focuses on Shanice Stevenson, a teenager in a small Ohio town who sings backup for a talented garage band. Things are going well for Shanice; she has a great group of friends, a loving family who surrounds her, and the band is starting to get some gigs. Her cousin Tawny, who lives in Detroit, is also coming for the summer. Shanice and Tawny have always gotten along like sisters, until now.
Shanice is biracial while Tawny is black. Her cousin's taunts plant doubts in Shanice's mind and her internal struggle about who she is and where she fits in flows over into her relationships with her friends and her family. As her struggle deepens, she begins to withdrawal from her closest friends. Will she sever the ties altogether or realize true friendship reaches past your looks and into your soul?
I really connected with Shanice, a biracial chick living in a mostly white town, who is faced with the possibility that her friends like her only because she acts "white." Don't worry! Friendship prevails! Barb Huff paints wonderful characters in this series. I'm just in love with all of them. Most real characters in Christian fiction.
