Trying to fit in at a posh new school is really hard when your loving and lovable family also happen to be criminals.

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.
