The White Girl description

In Tony Birch’s new novel, The White Girl, matriarch Odette holds her light-skinned granddaughter Sissy close and tries to circumvent Removal policies by seeking anonymity in the city. But to cross her town’s borders, she needs the permission of its brutal new policeman – and state custodian of all Aboriginal people in his district – Sergeant Lowe. From one of Australia’s leading storytellers, Tony Birch’s The White Girl is an illuminating and eloquent meditation on family, strength and the misuse of power.
