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.
