"Readers can't get enough of him."
The Independent

Sometimes, to help a friend, you have to dig deep.

Trying to fit in at a posh new school is really hard when your loving and lovable family also happen to be criminals. Bridget is succeeding pretty well and has even made a friend, Menzies, the son of the federal Minister for National Development. Then she finds out about Menzies' penfriend, Jamal, a refugee kid from Afghanistan held in a detention centre. When daring appeals to the government and the prime minister himself fail to set Jamal and his sister free, Bridget and Menzies decide to take matters into their own hands. Sometimes the only way to make things happen is to do them yourself. A story of friendship, courage and Iraqi blenders from the bestselling author of Boy Overboard.

"Bridget, the bright hope of criminal parents she's trying to keep out of prison, befriends Menzies, son of a government minister, when her family sends her to an exclusive boarding school. She joins his mission to free refugee children at a desert detention center. Bridget is the narrator of this realistic, timely Australian adventure about immigration policy, terrorists, and the difference between the rights of criminals and illegal aliens. Mary-Anne Fahey's Australian accent lends believability to the story, and she expertly captures Bridget's excitement, spontaneity, and idealism."
