Darwin is full of soldiers, there's a spy on the loose, her beloved pets are in danger 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? Timid, kind, and courageous, Pearlie is an unforgettable Australian Girl.'(Publication summary)
