Product Description
 
Fifteen-year-old Lola is ecstatic when her mother receives an offer of three months' work as a store manager in Wandana, a remote Aboriginal community.
But Wandana is no holiday resort. In the red dust and blazing heat of Central Australia, Lola and her family are confronted with a culture baffingly different from their own, and a form of racism they have never encountered before. Misunderstanding and violence threaten to end their adventure soon after it has begun. Yet from somewhere in this harsh place, hands reach out to the newcomers. Can Lola and her family grasp those hands across the cultural divide?
