A story of friendship, courage and a bit of crime.
Bridget wants a quiet life. Including, if possible, keeping her parents out of prison.
Then a boy called Menzies makes her an offer she can't refuse, and they set off on a job of their own.
It's a desperate, daring plan – to rescue two kids, Jamal and Bibi, from a desert detention centre.
Can Bridget and Menzies pull off their very first jail break, or will they end up behind bars too?
Sometimes, to help a friend, you have to dig deep.
