Rabbit-proof fence by Doris Pilkington (Nugi Garimara)

Finding Australian literature was an adventure in itself.  Here is a story of conquest, deceit, and heart wrenching sorrow that compels you to turn the pages.  In short, you have 3beautiful girls, through no fault of their own, do not fit in.  They may be loved by their white fathers.  But by being 1/2 Aboriginal, they are taken away by the government.  Courage  and deep family ties trumps the inept government officials who seek to have these half-caste girls returned to the boarding school from hell.  Read it, feel it, then check out the movie to see the heroines Molly, Daisy, and Gracie triumph!”
