'It's1941 . . . and the war is changing Pearlie's life every day. Darwin is full of soldiers, there's a spy on the loose, and people are turning against Pearlie's best friend, Naoko, just because she's Japanese. When everything falls apart, will Pearlie be brave enough to stick up for what's right, or will her old fears get the better of her?

'Meet Pearlie and join her adventure in the first of four exciting stories about a courageous girl in a world at war.' (Publication summary)
