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.
With its themes of friendship, perseverance and the power of standing up for what's right, Girl Underground is a must-read for anyone who loved Boy Overboard and wants to continue following Jamal and Bibi's journey through the eyes of all new, but every bit as endearing, characters.

'He is one of the finest examples of a writer who can make humour stem from the things that really matter in life.' The Guardian
