'Against anything I had ever been told was possible, I was turning white. On the surface of my skin, a miracle was quietly brewing ...' Suburban Australia. Sweltering heat. Three bedroom blonde-brick. Family of five. Beat-up Ford Falcon. Vegemite on toast. Maxine Beneba Clarke's life is just like all the other Aussie kids on her street. Except for this one, glaring, inescapably obvious thing... This is a powerful, funny, and at times devastating memoir about growing up black in white middle-class Australia.
