Description

Budi (the main character) continues to follow his dreams to be like his hero someday, even with a lot of trouble thrown in his path. I'll try not to give anything away but, in effect: there is something that happens towards the end of the book which COULD potentially have changed the course of a character's life and the way things turned out really annoyed me! However, the closest that he has come to reaching this dream is working in a factory that makes the football boots worn by his favourite player. The child-labour described in this story remind us that there are parts of the world where education is a luxury; children have bring in money to support the family.

Budi and his friends spend all their free time playing football, role-playing their favourite teams and stars.It might be a children's book but it pulls no punches in its description of the way too many children still have to live in our world today. It will also raise an awareness of important issues such as child labour, lack of the human rights many of us take for granted in some parts of the world, and corrupt authorities. Awalnya aku mengira garapan Mitch Johnson ini akan lebih kurang dengan garapan penulis luar lainnya. As much as I hope Kick will shed light on a desperate global issue, I feel it must also remain a testament to the transcendent, unifying power of sport.

Mitch Johnson (author of Kick), for the majority of the book, is gentle and quite subtle with the content as I only picked up on how problematic the events may be in the story about three-quarters of the way through. Walaupun di puluhan halaman pembuka aku merasa bosan dan mulai memupuskan ekspaktasi besarku pada novel ini, tapi akhirnya terjawab dengan munculnya bagian kisah baru dari kehidupan Budi ini. Namun kesialan terjadi, belum dapat merasakan gurihnya rendang buatan ibunya, Budi malah harus berurusan dengan Naga karena satu tendangannya yang menyalang ke rumah 'Preman' Jakarta itu, mantan napi Nusa Kambangan yang menyeretnya pada komplotan mereka untuk melakukan aksi yang jelas berlawanan dengan kerjaannya— ya dia harus melakukan itu demi menyelamatkan dirinya 'hidup-hidup' dari si Naga sialan itu.It highlights the issues faced by those living in a society where most people are just about scraping enough money together to get by. Overall, this was an enjoyable book with merit and once again, thank you to my wonderful librarian for sending me this book. A necessary lesson for everyone about the realities of football kit manufacturing and the discrepancy between the heroes that make the products and the heroes that get to wear them on the biggest stages around the globe.
