Until she was fourteen, Josie was pretty ordinary. Then her Mom meets Martin, "a real ponytail Indian," and before
long, Josie finds herself living on a reserve outside town, with a new stepfather, a new stepbrother, and a new name, "Blondie." In town, white was the ambient noise, the no-colour background. On the reserve, she’s White, and most seem to see her only for her blond hair and blue eyes. Bit by bit, the place itself, the reserve, the run-down houses, the way the people live in them and around them, the forest and the sea, finds its way into her, like nothing else ever has, or ever will.
