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

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.

About the Author:

Morris Gleitzman was born in Lincolnshire and moved to Australia in his teens. He worked as a paperboy, a shelf-stacker, a frozen chicken de-froster, an assistant to a fashion designer and more before taking a degree in Professional Writing at Canberra College and becoming a writer. He has written for TV, stage, newspapers and magazines but is best-known for his hugely succesful children's books including Two Weeks with the Queen, Bumface and Once.

From AudioFile:

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. To further enhance the atmosphere, each chapter is introduced with the squeal of a slamming prison door, and each disc opens and closes with the sound of sirens.
