About this deal

Budi and his friends spend all their free time playing football, role-playing their favourite teams and stars. and then it becomes more a story of morals and making the right decisions in life as oppose to the easy decisions. Keputusan tepat MJ— lebih nyaman memanggilnya begitu HEHE— mengeksekusi konfliknya secara perlahan dan menyenangkan, tak ada kesan terburu-buru di bagian manapun, hanya saja karena di puluhan halaman pembuka seperti yang kupaparkan di review sebelumnya— tepatnya penghantar konfliknya bisa kubilang sangat membosankan, karena itu 3. This is a story about big dreams, perseverance, tolerance and never letting anything bring you down.

Awalnya aku mengira garapan Mitch Johnson ini akan lebih kurang dengan garapan penulis luar lainnya. He lives a hard life generally, which is laid out with no holds barred (whilst still being appropriate for older primary school children), and throughout the book he faces a lot of hard, sometimes heartbreaking challenges, but his love for football and his dream to one day play for Real Madrid spur him on and keep him 'kicking'. The last thing Budi needs is to inadvertently become involved with The Dragon – the most feared man in Jakarta.

Mitch Johnson brings the Indonesian city of Jakarta to life in this gripping adventure, full of twists, turns and inspiring bravery against the odds. He’s going to play for the greatest team on earth, rather than in the square behind the factory where he works. I do not know what it is like to go hungry, or to work in fear of violence, or to live next door to destitution. We are right there with them, through the horrors they face, but there is humour, and warmth, and a wonderful relationship between the main two children.

Outline of the Book: Budi is going to play for the biggest team in the world, instead of making shoes every day but one unlucky kick brings his whole world crashing down. It had too much more than I expected from a children's book about football, which I have dealt with a lot lately. I loved reading about Budi and Johnson creates his world brilliantly- you truly come to inhabit his life, feel his hopes and anxieties and care for him and his family. At the end of the book, there is a scene which is entirely embroiled in crime and it ends in Budi surviving with his father (although his uncle sadly dies) and he ends up with millions of pounds in cash. One day his life changes when he accidentally kicks the ball through the window of corrupt local money-lender The Dragon.He's going to play for the greatest team on earth, rather than in the square behind the factory where he works. The adjectives had me enthralled and at one point when the story was at it's peak, I felt as if I was really there.
