Do you dare confront a bully? Steal to protect someone? Hide a bushranger?
When Jem comes across a well-dressed bushranger in the hills behind his home, at first he's afraid. But William Westwood is no ordinary thief, and he's not much older than Jem himself. The two become friends, along with Jem's mates and his puppy that he rescued from drowning. But when the law catches up with William, who is on the run, will Jem be able to save his new friend from an awful fate?
