    One thought on “Girl Underground”

    1. This book was a pile of poo It was shallow, Inconsistent and repetitive Honestly i dont think we have to hear about what country every single inanimate object is from The characters are unrealistic and boring It teaches kids that there is only one side to every argument that is right In the book the adults are always the Bad Guys and seem like a typical villain They make it seem like the government is bad and must be the villain The kids also pull of impossible feats such as sneaking into the pa [...]

    2. If I wasn t forced by my hateful English teacher to read a book in the library I would have never read this book I loved it I seriously fell in love with the character And it makes me think of what I can do to those people They shouldn t be locked up like animals Aussie classic

    3. I had to read this book for school and found it really boring and dull but that was just me It was interesting about the assylem seekers though.

    4. A funny adventure story with some serious undertones that are very relevant in Australia today the treatment of refugees Morris Gleitzman is the master of writing about difficult subject matter in a light hearted way that still honours the seriousness of such topics Themes of friendship, loyalty and standing up for what you believe in.

    5. I love the writing of Morris Gleitzman He s not only entertaining, he writes about social justice issues in a way that s easily accessible to children This book deals with asylum seeker children in detention, highlighting the fact that even the kids in our society are capable of seeing injustice and calling it out for what it is.

    6. takes a deep breath WHAT THE HELL msDGajrhkhjbjhjdjhngb I am sooo disappointed in this book Like Boy Overboard was ledgendary, and now you give me this I can t even explain how depressed and ugggg i cant even get to the point If you loved Boy Overboard, in my opinion, your going to get real damn shocked at this.

    7. Sweet story of a young girl who tries to do the right thing With a friend she makes at her new school, she tries to help refugees who are kept in a prison like environment and the story is how she tries to help them without getting her family in trouble.

    8. This book is really good It is about a girl called Bridget and a boy called Menzies on their mission to free 2 refugee kids from a refugee detention center I really like how Bridget and Menzies don t give up on their mission even though they wen through much trouble on their journey.

    9. Girl from a family involved in not perfectly legal business enters an expensive private school Her main only concern is that she may reveal a murky nature of her father s business to the world.In the boarding house she meets a son of a politician, who son not the father is concerned with well being of children living in a refugees camp No, it is not Manus Island, it is in Australian outback, year 2004 What struck me is that in the book mail posted in the Australian outback reached Canberra in co [...]

    10. really interesting book, leads on from boy overboard but it was a gr8 story about refugees, politican, and the measures a father would do to save his family.

    11. This book to me is to books what Michael Moore s movies are to documentaries It feels like we are forced to think oh those poor kids in those detention centers We must help them I read this in grade 8 and the bait Morris Gleitzman seems to throw out seemed to have worked on every kid in my class There is a reason why The Australian Government won t let in people from Afghanistan or any place like that , whereas this book says that there really is no reason why people are locked up in detention c [...]

    12. Kurang gregetnya dibanding Boy Overboard Mungkin saya yang lagi gak mood, atau memang ceritanya gak asik, tapi setelah beberapa chapter kok ya bosan ya Anyway, ini tentang seorang anak yang orang tuanya kriminal Mereka menjual barang barang black market lah gitu Trus Bridget, si anak, di sekolahin di sebuah asrama dan bertemu dengan anak mentri, Menzies Mereka pun berteman Menzies ini terobsesi dengan detention center yg ada di Australia, yaitu tempat para pengungsi dilokalisasi Menzies kirim ki [...]

    13. I felt irritated by the author s obvious ulterior motive, ie to educate kids about the issue of assylum seekers in australia And in any case I thought he presented the issue in a very biased and one sided way I don t profess to know much about the issue or have an opinion on it either way but the whole way through I kept thinking I want to hear the other side of the story The kids were made out to be the goodies and the adults were The Baddies, so whenever the kids asked the adults questions the [...]

    14. Category None.My sister was reading this book and I just flicked through to see what it was about From the cover it doesn t look much but I loved this book I never thought it would be any good but i totally loved it Its such a strange but amazing book and tells life from a really different perspective After reading his novel I searched for He is an a great author who could give anyone a new outlook on life His ability to create characters who blow you away is something special Read his books an [...]

    15. A companion novel sequel to Boy Overboard , Girl Underground tells the story of Bridget, who is sent to boarding school by her parents to protect her from their life of crime and instead becomes swept up in the attempt to free two children in a detention centre Once again Gleitzman has perfectly captured the perspective of a child, adding humour to simultaneously free yet remind the reader of the seriousness of the situation.

    16. I am not even half way, and already many exciting and interesting things have occurred I really like the story line and where the book has taken me I love to be able to visualize the situations and descriptions during the chapters and there are times where I don t want to stop turning the pages I can t wait to read

    17. I mostly feel as if this is a sequel of the book boy overboard when Jamal and Bibi come to Australia from a long trip But I didn t quit like these books they were pretty boring and I didn t feel like continue the book I excepted a lot from the book I wished that there was describing do I could understand the environment or how they felt I give this book a 2 5

    18. Companion book to Boy Overboard, with Bibi and Jamal now being in an Australian detention center The main focus is on the friends on the outside who are desperately trying to get them out Interesting topic but I got a bit tired of reading about Bulgarian game boys, Armenian toasters etc.

    19. This book was a good read I think there are a few politicians who need to be checking out the YA section of their local bookshop for this.
