Adam and Justin are aghast to find that on the eve of their second adventure, they've been saddled with an African girl called Kim Maleka. Kim, who is Adam's age,
is Aunt Isabel's foster child. Although she enters the adventure feeling slightly at a disadvantage and with school problems hanging over her head, Kim ends up having
extremely good ideas and has a practical side that comes in very handy. She develops great confidence and, in the end, the boys consider her an integral part of the team.
"Thanks, guys. I knew you'd come get me."
