In the book boy overboard children didn’t get the same rights as us. For example, girls and boys were treated differently. Girls are not allowed to go outside unless they are with a grown up and they needed to cover their hair. Girls were not allowed to play football. The story was set inÂ Afghanistan and the government was not fair. They blew up Jamal’s and Bibi’s house and they were not granted their right to decent shelter and protection. Governments are not allowed to send a family out of a country.They have to look after their citizens. Jamal and Bibi are not allowed to go to school and they don’t have a right to have education. Jamal and Bibi don’t have the right to be safe because their are landmines everywhere and if you step on one the landmine will blow like a bomb. Reading this book really made me think about how unfair it is when children don’t get the rights they are entitled to.
Who else has read this story and what are your opinions?
