Boy Overboard This book follows the journey of a family trying to escape Afghanistan by boat. This book is just amazing and inspiring. The book is addicting because you want to never stop reading. Boy overboard is an awesome book! This book was written to express sympathy for the people that have fled their country. This is just down right unacceptable.

This book holds a very special place in my heart. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. All I can say is, we are pretty lucky! This book helps show you, how you need to push forwards, when hard decisions and situations come your way. All in all the book was ok. I learnt that the government will kill anyone who breaks the law. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

When Mohammed and Fatima get caught by the government they are forced to leave the country and travel to Australia.

If you are going to write a story about refugees then do a little lgeitzman of research. It will be a semi-decent book for Grade Two to Grade Four students, though; But high school literature???? The way the main characters act are very smilier.

I found myself having to read some sentences over again, because since the len Boy Overboard was a story I had to read in English.

We have decided to try and go to Australia. Would be great for exploring the way people live differently around the world. What interested me is that he wanted to play soccer for Australia even though Australia is not that good at soccer. Refresh and try again. The author rushed this book to get it out and the quality was so poor. If you want to be part of or start a political debate then this is a book for you. I think boy over board is a great book because it is very gleitaman and touching.


Maybe I’ve read this book at least a dozen times before.

He has a passion for soccer and wishes to play professionally, as does his younger sister Bibi. And may Maybe I’ve read this book at least a dozen times before.

Definitely holding onto it so I can pass it on to the younger people in my family. There are some concepts in the book that would not be appropriate for most primary aged kids, but could be skipped without destroying context in the story ie the taking of girls and the implied gleiitzman.

Boy Overboard

Publisher’s Summary Jamal and Bibi have a dream. Talia First open the book then start reading. It also shows what it would ovedboard like to live with the rules of the Taliban. My least favourite part is movvie they get separated from their parents onto a different boat. I would recommend this book to any one who wants a good realistic story and wants to learn about the life in other strict countries.

I loved this book…………. 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. My favourite character was Bibi.

Well, the book certainly simplifies all the trouble the refugees have to go through in mmovie to reach safety and the character development is trash.


I read this book for English and it was pretty good. In the book Boy Overboard we are told about two children, boy and girl who want to lead Afghanistan to win the football world cup, the government in Afghanistan does not allow to girls to play football: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

I recommend this to anyone since it is that good. No trivia or quizzes yet. This book is just an all round great book and once you read I bet you will be thinking that to!

In the library of course I liked the book because it was adventurous with some scary momements when the oferboard character and his family are near death situations.

I love the sassiness that Bibi displays throughout this book! My favourite character was Bibi because she was so confident in everything she did, oferboard was defiantly confident and that is how I relate to her. She would always want to think of the good things in bad situations.

This is an amazing book. I must warn you though, the first two pages are SOOO off putting, but as soon as you get past them it is the best book ever. I understand what the author is trying to do but I personally do not agree with it.
