Summary

Thuli Nhlapo was seven years old when she realised that no one called her by name. Known as "Yellow", she was bullied at home and at school. Fearing that she had a terrible disease, she withdrew into herself. Years later, Thuli is still haunted by her childhood experiences. She confronts her mother about her real father. Getting no answers, Thuli embarks on years of searching for the truth. In the process, she uncovers unsettling family secrets that irrevocably change all their lives.
