Boy Overboard is about a boy called Jamal and his sister Bibi and their quest to get to their dream home, Australia. They have to go on an epic journey to get to Australia and some of the time they just lose all hope of one day becoming soccer stars for their country. But do they get to Australia safely? Or do pirates stop them from reaching their dream? There is only one way to find out. Read Boy Overboard and step into the shoes of Jamal or Bibi.
I give this book a rating of 9/10 for its humility and real life situations.
