Product Details

Brown has lived her whole life on the fringes of a small country town.
After her daughter disappeared and left her with her granddaughter Sissy
to raise on her own, Odette has managed to stay under the radar of the
welfare authorities who are removing fair-skinned Aboriginal children
from their families. When a new policeman arrives in town, determined to
enforce the law, Odette must risk everything to save Sissy and protect
everything she loves.

In The White Girl,
Miles-Franklin-shortlisted author Tony Birch shines a spotlight on the
1960s and the devastating government policy of taking Indigenous
children from their families.
