A junior novel about family, adventure and trust from award-winning author Cristy Burne. Isaac arrives on Rottnest Island hoping for an awesome holiday adventure, but his mum would rather he stayed inside, where it's safe. Then Isaac meets Emmy. She's allowed to do whatever she wants – and she wants to have fun! With Emmy daring him on, Isaac's life gets more and more exciting. First they jump off the jetty into the freezing ocean, then they ride their bicycles to the island's distant lighthouse. When Emmy suggests a midnight stalk to the salt lakes, Isaac knows his worrywart mum won't say yes – so he sneaks out. But when quokkas jump onto the path, Isaac and Emmy crash their bicycles, leaving them injured and scared. This time it's Isaac who dares Emmy – to get home safely and tell their parents the truth. Isaac brings his mum to the island bakery, and Emmy brings her dad and her baby brothers. They eat, talk and forgive as the kids and the parents agree trust, honesty and good communication are the best way.
