One example is that girls are not allowed to go to school. Talia First open the book then start reading. Aug 07, Noah O’Keeffe rated it did not like it. I chose this book because the book looks very interesting, and unbelievable how people can escape from extremism government, and after that stay alive, and live in a safe place from the extremist government.
The saddest bit is when there in the middle of a football match they find out that the other boat sank and the find out that there in a detention center.
So this is what happened jamal,bibi,rashida and omar were kicking a ball about and then the a pirate tried to kick the football but then jamal snached the football away from the pirate and then the pirate kicked him so hard that i think he broke his hip. The characters just show up at places and the book includes absolutely no explanation! They’ll have to beat some really good teams, plus landmines, pirates, storms, and assassins.

I give this book glejtzman well deserved 5 stars out of All his other books have been shortlisted for or have won numerous children’s book prizes. Jan 05, Tegan rated it it was amazing. Plot convenience shows that the author has been very lazy with this book.
Jamal is hoy adult-like I absolutely despise how Jamal is a kid stereotype and then becomes and adult! One thing I learnt from the book is that mroris all people that act good are good.
Definitely holding onto it so I can pass it on to the younger people in my family. I was a little disappointed in how this book was written.
I decided to read this book. Again because of my intermediate friends. Jamal and Bibi are the dumbest kids I have ever read about.
A story of hope, ball control, and an incredible journey. Jamal dreams of playing soccer in the World Cup even though he lives in a country where children are not allowed to play the game. Told from the perspective of a young boy, this story gave my children a great insight into the plight of refugees and asylum seekers.
When they are forced to leave their country by the Taliban, they make their way to Australia. The book is about ooverboard family who is forced to flee their country due to a corrupt government wanting them ogerboard.
It seemed like such a wonderful plot. If this book was written a little bit better than I would have enjoyed it.
Boy Overboard by Morris Gleitzman – Penguin Books Australia
They desperately try to make their way to Australia, as many other refugees, with little money and at the mercy of ruthless human traffickers. I have just read a book about Jamal and the only thing I know about him is that he is dumb and that he likes soccer.
Nov 12, Amy rated it it was amazing Shelves: And maybe my copy is coming unglued from the spine from the number of times I’ve read it and the number of times I’ve flipped to the title page to see the authors signature and dedication ‘G’day Amy!
To lead Australia to football glory in the next World Cup. I’m a teacher and have read this book several times with my grade sixes year olds.
Jamal, his sister Bibi and their parents flee the Taliban with the intent to seek asylum in Australia.
