Originally published: Australia: Penguin, 2004.

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 best-selling author of Boy Overboard.
