What's a black girl from sunny Southern California to do?

White people are blowing up black girls in Birmingham churches

Black people are shouting "Black is beautiful!" while straightening their hair and coveting light skin

Viveca Stanton has an answer - Slap on a bubbly smile and be as white as you can be!

In a humorous and pointed coming-of-age story spanning the Sixties through to the Nineties, Viveca blithely sails through the confusing worlds of racism, sexism and Broadway showbiz

Until she's finally forced to face the devastating effect self-denial has had on her life
