A delightful and funny story from an award-winning author about a lion-hearted girl who just wants the best for her family.

When her dad loses his job as a security officer and takes a job interstate, Huda convinces her brother, Akeal, to help her sneak out each night. Huda wants to create mischief in the neighbourhood in the hope that with more crime, their dad will be reinstated as a security patroller. The dynamic duo begin their crime spree by pushing over bins the night before rubbish collection. They are chased by fluffy robe man, which is only the beginning of the hot water they end up in. As their activities escalate, will they be able to outsmart the authorities? Huda is brave, but how much is she willing to risk for family unity – and what else might she and Akeal uncover along the way? A thoroughly entertaining story full of hijinks, courage and hilarity.

'A charming, delightful and original story that kept me smiling the whole way through.' (on Huda and Me)
