    diyane Boy Overboard is a story about Jamal,Bibi and their Mum and dad.Mum gets into trouble from the government because she run an illegal school for children.they had to get out of Afghanistan before the government kills them and get to Australia.

    I have learned that the government in some countries like Afghanistan are really mean.At the moment i wouldn't go to Afghanistan because of the government.This book makes me feel emotional because of all the bad things that go wrong to the people in Afghanistan

    I thought the book was great because of all of the excitement and sadness.i would recommend this book to anybody who is interested in other Countries. by diyane
