    Chapter 1
    Spoiler:

    1.
    The chapter begins with a fantasy of Jess: She plays football for the Manchester United and makes an important goal. Her team wins and she is the big star. After the play her mother is in the studio for an interview and complains about Jess (she does not want that Jess plays football).
    With a shout, Mrs. Bhamra tears Jess away from her fantasies. Her mother wants that she goes shopping with her sister Pinky. Pinky is very excited, because she will marry Teetu soon. But now she found out that Teetu’s sister is going to wear pink to their engagement party. That is a desaster for her, because she also wants to wear pink. So she needs a new suit.
    During the shopping, they meet their cousins Meena, Bubbly and Monica and Jess’ mate Tony with his mother. After a short talk, they go on with the shopping and Pinky finds the perfect suit for her at long last.
    On the way home, they notice that they forgot to buy carrots and dhania for their mother. So Jess has to buy it in a little market and has to go home on foot, because Pinky has to drive home to be punctual for a meeting.
    Jess knows that her mates are in the park and that they play football. That is why she decides to take a short cut through the park. She only wants to say hello, because she knows that her mother will be mad if she plays football with the boys. But they persuade Jess for a short play and so she joins them.
    After a while she comes home and unfortunately she gets into trouble with her mother, because she is too late and her mother knows that she played football.
    The chapter ends with the engagement party of Pinky. At first Jess thinks that it will be a horrible party, but the party is not that bad.

    3.
    For a girl it is not permit to have contact with men and to show some bare skin. Mostly the parents plan the future for their children (Jess has to be a lawyer, has to marry). Before a woman can marry a man, the parents have to agree with.
    4.
    I think it is very hard for Jess to fulfill her own dreams and to fulfill the dreams of her parents at the same time. They have an idea of Jess’ life and they want that Jess will do what they want.


    Chapter 2

    Spoiler:

    1.
    Jess plays football very successfully. She is in the park with the boys.
    Suddenly she sees her cousins waving frantically at her. They only want to know who the boy with the six-pack is. At first Jess does not know who they mean but then she notices that they mean Taz. Tony calls her and she feels relieved to leave them.
    So she goes on with playing. After a while a girl named Jules arrives and asks her whether she is interested in a female team. Jess is surprised and unsure, but Jules assures Jess that she is very talented and that she has to join them. That was always her dream and so she agrees.
    At first she has to have a trial but that is not a big obstacle for her. She thinks that this could be her chance to do something different with her life.
    She passes the trial well and is now a new member of the Hounslow Harriers. But there is a big problem: she has to inform her parents…
    2.
    Jess:
    - She has not a lot of contact with her cousins Monica, Bubly and Meena (p.15, l.13).
    - Apparently she is not very interested in boys. For her, it does not matter whether a boy has a six-pack or not (p.15, l.24). The other boys are only mates for her.
    Jules:
    - She seems to be very nice and obliging.
    - She is a member of the Hounslow Harriers.
    - It looks like she would flirt with Joe and is maybe in love with him.
    Joe:
    - He is the coach of the Hounslow Harriers (p.17, l.28).
    - He is pretty (p.17, l.33).
    - At the first time he seems to be disagreeable (p.18, l.2).
    - He has an Irish accent (p.18, l.5).
    4.
    Either the Hounslow Harriers will be a big secret in front of her parents or she has to tell them everything and so she has to risk that they will forbid it her. In her culture a girl can not play football, so her parents are probably against her joining of the team.
    5.
    There is a development in her “football career”, because now she has the possibility to join a team and to become better in playing football.


    Chapter 3
    Spoiler:

    make someone aware of something
    1.
    Now it is time for her first training. Joe gives Jess a pair of boots and a kit of the Hounslow Harriers. In the dressing room she is a little bit ashamed, because it is new for her to change her clothes in front of other girls. So she waits a moment until all the girls are already on the pitch. She wants to wear her tracksuit bottoms so that nobody can see her scar, but Joe does not agree with.
    When she is on the pitch, she does not walk to the others. She sits down on a bench. Joe notices that she does not join the other members of the team and so he goes to her and wants to know why she sits there. She tells him about her scar on her thigh and that she does not want to show it to the others. For persuading her, he also shows her his scar on his knee. He tells her that he can not play football because of his injury. Then, his father was his trainer and Joe trained very hard. He did not pay attention to his injury and went on and on with his training. After a while he was not capable to go on with his training, broke up the connection to his father and so he is now “only” a coach. Jess feels pity for him and Joe makes her aware that she can play football and that it does not matter whether she has a scar or not. On the spot she joins her team and starts with the training. Jess is in a quite good form and the girls are very nice and accept her.
    After that, she goes to the park to tell her mates everything. They tease her a little bit because of the fact that she is now in a GIRLS football team. Showing her skills, she takes the ball and with some tricks she shows Taz that she is a lot better than he is. For fun, he swings her over his shoulder. It is a lot of fun, but suddenly Tony stares past her and Taz, and they stop laughing: Jess’ mother stands angry in front of her and looks at them.
    At home, her parents are very angry. They forbid her the footballplaying.
    After all, Jess wants to go out of the house. So she meets Tony and tells him about their dispute. In the park they meet Jules and Jess tells her that her mother does not want that she is in the team. Jules does not want to accept it and so she suggests her to say Jess’ parents that she has a summer job. And while her parents think that she is working, she can train.
    2.
    Jess:
    - She has a scar on her thigh (p.22, l.13). Once she wanted to cook something for her parents. Suddenly her trousers caught fire and that is why she has a scar.
    - She is not used to undressing in public (p.21, l.20).
    - At first she respects the opinion of her parents. At home she did not think about the possibility to lie and nevertheless go to the training. Only the influence of Jules makes her a little bit mor tricky.
    - Her family plays a big role in her life. When Joe tells her that he has no contact to his father, Jess feels very pitty, because she can not imagine that she could be alone without her family.
    Joe:
    - He is very understanding (p.23, l.21).
    - He has no contact to his father.
    - He seems to be a little bit embittered, because he can not play football.
    Mr. Bhamra:
    - He is always more of a soft touch than her mother (p.25, l.25).
    Mrs. Bhamra:
    - For her, it is important that they make a great impression on the other people. She only thinks about what the people could think about her family. She wants that her daughter gets married and that she plays the normal housewife (“What family will want a daughter-in-law who can run around kicking a football all day, but can’t make round chapattis?”) (from p.25, l.32).
    - In the family she is the one deciding everything. When Jess’ father wants to say something, she interrupts him (p. 26, l.5).
    Jules:
    - Her parents were also against the footballplaying, but she made it without a permission (p.27, l.20).
    - She had the same problems like Jess
    3.
    A girl has to know how to cook and she has to be decent (from p. 25, l.32). She has to be the perfect housewife. Jess’ family does not accept a divorce and if something like that happens, it will be a big shame for the whole family (p.26, l. 11).
    4.
    Jess decides to lie. Often the parents find it out. So Jess has to be very carefull.
    5.
    Because her parents are against her passion, she decides to lie. Consequently she becomes estranged from her parents and that is never good. She starts to abuse their trust.


    Chapter 4

    Spoiler:

    1.
    Since a week, Jess’ family thinks that she works at HMV, but in reality she has training. She feels bad, but she is sure that she does not do something stupid like taking drugs or getting pregnant.
    They have their first match. Jess is very nervous but when she walks on the pitch and sees the ball, she is in her element. She makes the first goal and they finally win the game. Now Jess is sure that she will never give this up.
    The days settle and Jess is into a kind of routine. Everything seems to be going well. But it will not last: After a training session, Jess goes home and finds out that Pinky went to HMV to pick her up. Suddenly Pinky arrives very angry and Jess’ stomach flips over.
    2.
    Pinky:
    - She is a salesperson on the Avis car rental desk at Heathrow (p.29, l.6).
    - She is always late (p.29, l.7).
    Mrs. Bhamra:
    - She is very careful, because she pays attention that Jess has breakfast before she goes to “work” (from p.29, l.3).
    Jess:
    - She feels bad about lying. So she respects her parents and is not ruthless (p.29, l.16).
    3.
    A lot of marriages are arranged, but not the marriage of Pinky. If you can choose your husband you can only choose a Muslim.


    Chapter 5

    Spoiler:

    1.
    When Pinky comes into the house, she tells her mother that Jess’ manager said to her that she had just missed her. So, she lies for Jess. Then Mrs. Bhamra goes into the kitchen to make them some tea and meanwhile Pinky grills her sister. Jess tells her everything and Pinky is very shocked. At first she thought that Jess has a boyfriend and because of that she lies, but she can not understand that Jess plays football and that playing football is so important for her that she even tells lies to her parents.
    Luckily, Poli the seamstress arrives. During Poli measures their sizes for their suits, Jess has a problem in her mind: she needs some new football boots to become better in playing football. Jess is broke, that is why she has to ask her mother for some money. She is certain that her mother will never give her money for some football boots. Therefore she has to have an idea. So she says to her mother that she needs to buy different shoes for her suits for the wedding. Her mother, Pinky and Poli look delightedly at her and her mother agrees.
    She goes with Jules shopping. She buys the football boots and as they come out of the shop, Jules reminds Jess to buy some shoes for the wedding. Fortunately they find a cheap shop and Jess buys a pair.
    Because they do not want to go home, Jules persuades Jess to go into a pub. At first, Jess does not want to, but she has no choice. Jules is persistent.
    When Jess comes back home, she tries to be very quiet, because she has her new boots in the bag. But Pinky betrays her and takes away the bag. Jess tries to avert it, but it is too late. Her mother suddenly grabbs her jacket and asks her whether she smoked and drinked alcohol. Jess manages it to calm her mother down and then her mother takes one of the shoe boxes. She sees the black loafers and is not very impressed, because they have not any heel. After that she takes out the football boots and is about to burst into tears. But luckily her parents do not have the idea that she is still in the team and so she can go on with the training.
    During the next training, Jess tells Jules that she has to give the boots back and with the money of the boots she has to buy some new shoes for her suit. Jules wants to help her and says that she has to come with her after the training.
    Joe notices that they are talking and so he orders them to run five more laps.
    Meanwhile Jess runs her laps, Joe notices that Jess’ right ankle is hurting and he explains her that she has to make a break if she has an injury. He made the mistake and she should not make it, too. He helps her up and in this moment she feels that the first time in her life she falls in love with a boy.
    2.
    Mrs. Bhamra:
    - She is now proud that Jess cooks with her and helps her in the household.
    - On the one hand she does not want that the dresses are too tight and too sexy (Pinky) but on the other hand she does not want that they are too wide, so that they are dressed in a sack (Jess) and nobody will notice them (from p.35, l.25).
    Mr. Bhamra:
    - He tries to protect Jess (p.38, l.10).
    Jules:
    - She seems very sure of herself and she knows what she wants (p.37, l.17).
    - She has a place in Loughborough doing sports education (p.38, l.4).
    - Her big dream is to go to America and to get money for playing football.
    Joe:
    - He has not a good relationship to his father (from p.41, l. 13).

    3.
    It is not allowed for an Indian girl to go into a pub, drink alcohol or smoke (p.37, l.10).
    5.
    Her interest for boys grows.


    Chapter 6

    Spoiler:

    1.
    Jess is at Jules to borrow some shoes of Jules’ mother. So Jess can tell her mother that she bought some shoes and at the same time she can keep her football shoes. Then they watch a montage of action from women’s matches and Jess is very impressed and she also meets Jules’ mother. When Jess has to go home, Jules accompanys Jess to the next busstation.
    When Jess comes home, she notices that Teetu’s parents are there and that they talk to her parents. She feels that something is wrong.
    As Teetu’s parents go home, Jess finds out that his parents said that they have seen her at the busstation kissing an English boy. Because of that they called off the wedding of Pinky and Teetu. Pinky is very angry, when Jess tries to clarify the situation. She explains her parents that she was at the busstation with Jules and that they were not kissing. When she swears on Babaji’s name, her parents believe her. But Pinky is so angry that she tells her parents that Jess is still playing football. Her mother is shocked and can not believe it. At first Pinky only gives Jess the guilt for every shame, but then her mother says that she also knows that Pinky met Teetu. So they are both not allowed to go out.
    Pinky rests the whole day in her room and cries.
    A few days later, Jess asks Pinky whether she wants to come down for dinner. She says no but she also excuses that she told their parents about her football. Jess feels relieved and goes downstairs.
    At the table nobodys is talking. Suddenly the doorbell rings and Pinky runs the stairs down hoping that it is Teetu. But Joe stands in front of the door.
    2.
    Jess:
    - She falls in love with Joe and is jealous as she finds a photo of him and Jules (p.42, l.6).
    Jules:
    - as Jess meets Jules’s mother, she is very shocked and disappointed that Jess is also a footballplayer. So Jules has nearly the same problems like Jess (p.45, l.2).
    Teetu’s parents:
    - Pinky’s parents were never good enough for them (p.46, l.32).
    - They do not want that they marry, so also after telling the truth, the marriage is still off.
    3.
    It seems that the parents have to be very strict because some people think that “the children are only a map of their parents.”
    4.
    Now, nobody knows whether the wedding is really called off or Teetu manages it to persuade his parents. It is a very hard situation for Jess, because it is all her fault. Likely Teetu’s parents only searched for a victim and it was very fitting that they saw Jess with a “boy” at the busstation, but I think that Jess feels guilty.
    5.
    Jess can not play football anymore and the wedding is called off. Their parents do not trust their children anymore. So we will see why Joe is there.



    Chapter 7
    Spoiler:


    1.
    Joe tries to convince her parents that she has potential and that she has to play in a team. But her parents are obdurate and he has no chance. When Jess accompanys Joe to his car, he tells her that they have their next match on Saturday in Germany and that it is a shame that she can not go with them.
    But there is a gleam of hope: Pinky helps her to join her team for the match in Hamburg. Normally they are supposed to be staying at their cousin’s in Croydon, but not Jess. She will take Pinky’s mobile with her and call her parents. So her parents will think that she is together with Pinky in Croydon.
    In Germany, they have some free time before the match and so they make a river-boat trip. They have a lot of fun and then it is time for the match.
    The German girls are good and so it is a hard match to win. The match ends with one-one and so they have to make penalties. Unfortunately, Jess is the last and she does not make a goal. So the German girls win.
    2.
    Jess:
    - She is very ambitious

    4.
    A big problem is the hostility of foreigners. Jess’ father was the best fast bowler in Nairobi and when he came to England, the natives laughed at his turban and did not want him there. So Mr. Bhamra stopped playing and now he is frustrated and embittered. He do not think that Jess could have a chance in this land and that is why he is against her dream to play football.
    5.
    Jess has her first breakdown in her “football career” and so she learns how it feels.


    Chapter 8
    Spoiler:

    1.
    Jess is very disappointed. But for Jules, there is no time for beeing frustrated. They want to go into a club. But Jess did not bring anything for a club. So Jules calls Mel for helping them. Five minutes later Mel arrives with the hands full of make-up.
    After half an hour, Jess does not recognize herself: make-up, waved hair, tight skirt, shiny black top and high-heeled. Then they go down to reception where the others wait for them. As they see Jess, they are startled and surprised.
    In the club, Jess has a couple of glasses of wine, talks with the others and has a lot of fun. Jules comes to her and she whispers in her ear that she will ask Joe to dance and so she goes to the neighbouring table. Jess feels a little bit jealous and so she joins them. After a little discussion, Jules persuades Joe to dance. Jess does not want, because she has fear to break her ankle with her heels. So she goes to her team.
    During a conversation, Joe comes behind her and asks her to dance. At first Jess does not want, but then she also goes on the dance floor. They only dance for a few moments, because then Jess feels dizzy and so she goes outside to take some fresh air. Joe follows her and helps her. When they talk about Joe’s family, they get near and want to kiss each other. Suddenly someone says behind them:”You bitch!” and they see Jules disappearing back into the club.
    On the journey, Jules and Jess do not have any contact. That is one disaster, the second disaster is that Jess’ family stay in front of the bus waiting for her.
    2.
    Jess:
    - With her new outfit she feels more self-confident

    4.
    On the one hand she does not want to lose their friendship and on the other hand she falls in love with Joe. So she has to talk to Jules. This dispute is the first in the friendship of Jules and Jess. It is a challenge.
    5.
    In chapter eight you can see a big development of Jess. The first time in her life she is in a big city without her family, she has a new outfit and drinks alcohol. She is nearly a normal teenager. She has her first kiss and notices that she had also a good friendship to a girl (Jules). Now she has to be self-confident and she has to act independently to solve this problem.


    Chapter 9
    Spoiler:


    1.
    Her parents do not shout at her. They only drive home and her mother starts to cry. At home they go straight upstairs and Jess feels very sick.
    Pinky tells her that their father saw a newspaper article of Jess’ team with the information that they will go to Hamburg to a match. So he guessed, went to Croydon and brought Pinky home.
    Because she has to talk to Joe she says to her mother that she has to go to the library and so she has 1 or 2 hours. When she sees Joe in the clubhouse she is very nervous. She is very sad and says that she has to leave the team. Joe is not very lucky about it but he has to accept her decision.
    After her conversation with Joe, she goes to Jules and tries to excuse her acting. But Jules does not want to forgive her and so Jess goes home.
    2.
    Pinky:
    - She wears everytime make-up
    - She really loves Teetu because now she suffers a lot.
    Jules:
    - She is close to her father, because he supports her in front of her mother (p.65, l.25).



    Chapter 10

    Spoiler:

    1.
    Jess is with Tony in the park. At first they have a quite normal conversation and suddenly Jess aks him whether he likes her. Tony is a little bit irritated but says yes. Then she asks him whether they want to go out together, because she needs an Indian boyfriend. Tony is very surprised and wants to know why she asks him that. She tells him the story with her, Jules and Joe and that her parents want that she is the normal and shy Indian girl.
    After a few moments, Tony explains her that he is homosexual and that Jess is the only person who knows his big secret. Now Jess notices that he has the same problems with his family and their culture like she has.
    It is the day of the semi-final and Jess does not want to miss that match. So she says to her parents that she is ill and that she can not go to the temple.
    The first half is a disaster and the coronation is a goal of the other team.
    In the second half, Jules goals at first, and then Jess goals. The enjoyment is big but there is still a big distance between Jules and Jess.
    Before the end of the match Jess’ marker Zoe Turner grabbs her shirt and does not letting go. Jess falls on to the grass. Turner glares at her and names her Paki. Jess is mad and gives her a hard shove. The ref sees it and gives her the red card. Furious and disappointed she goes to the changing room and after some time her team also arrive cheerfully. So they won the match. Joe is very happy but he is also disappointed that Jess acted like that. He shouts at her because she could have cost them the tournament. And then he leaves the changing room. Jess starts to cry and follows him. She does not agree with him, she wants to protect herself. Then Joe points out that he is her coach and has to treat her like the other team members and he says that her acting was not professional. He knows how she feels, but she can not do this during a match. Finally he hugs her to calm her.
    Suddenly someone says Jesminder, she turns around and sees her father.
    3.
    Homosexuality is not allowed.


    Chapter 11
    Spoiler:


    1.
    They drive home without saying anything. At home she notices that Teetu’s parents are talking with her parents. Pinky tells her that his parents admit that they have done a mistake. So the wedding can happen. Immediately, they search a date for the wedding. The only available date is the 25th. Maybe it is a little bit too soon, but they agree.
    The 25th is also the day of the final against QPR. So Jess’ dream to play the last time in her life breaks.
    The day before the wedding, Jess helps her father to put the fairy lights back up on the front of the house. Apparently, he did not say anything to her mother and because of all the stress before the wedding Jess’ mother does not notice that anything is wrong.
    Suddenly Jules appears, she wants to talk to Jess. So they go in Jess’ bedroom. Jules tells her that the team needs her for the final match and that an American scout will be there. She tries to persuade her, but Jess stays hard. She can not disappoint her parents and her sister again.
    The next morning her exam results arrive. On the one hand she hopes that she has failed because she does not want to study and become a lawyer, but on the other hand she wants that her parents are proud of her. She has what she needs: two As and a B.
    Later that day, the house is full of relatives and they celebrate a litte bit. Biji dances in the living-room and suddenly she puts Jess a jaggo on the head and everybody says that she will be the next. That is too much for her and that is why she goes outside. There is her father and she sees Joe leaving him. She follows Joe and asks him what he wanted. He tells her that he said to her father that Jess has talent and that the scout is tomorrow at the match to see Jules AND her. But Jess says again that she has to study.
    So Joe says goodbye and now it becomes clear to her that this will be the end and that she will live the life she does not want if she does not change something.
    3.
    The day before the wedding: all relatives meet each other and celebrate. They make a lot of Indian foot, hear Indian music, dance and have Indian traditions (e.g. the jaggo). The wedding is a big event.

    It is the wedding day. Everything is perfect and after the ceremony they assemble each other to celebrate this great day. Suddenly Tony grabbs Jess’ arm to take her to the final match. But Jess struggles, she does not want to ruin this day. Surprisedly her father appears. He says that she can go to the match. The only condition is that she has to be happy after that. He wants that everybody is happy at the wedding of his daughter Pinky.
    As she arrives at the pitch, Joe informs her that they are one-nil down. After her warming-up, she gets on the pitch. When Jules sees her, her mouth drops open in amazement.That is their chance: Jules and Jess are again friends and teammates. They play better than ever and after a few moments Jules goals. The second halt is hard, but Jess also goals and they win the match and are the summer tournament champions. As fast as Jess can she puts on her sari to return to the party.
    Suddenly Joe calls Jules and Jess. Outside they meet the American scout telling them that he is impressed of them and that he wants recommend them both for the scholarships to Santa Clara college. Jules and Jess are very happy and rejoice. But then Jess has to go to the reception.
    The party is in full swing and at last it was time for the Doli. Everybody cries and the ambiance is very depressing. Suddenly Jules mother arrives with Jules and flounces out of the car. She claims that Jess is a lesbian, because she kissed her daughter at the pitch (they were only celebrating their victory). Then she sees her own shoes at Jess’ feet and wants them back. Pinky meddles in the conversation and reminds them that this is her wedding day. So Jules takes her mother back in the car and they leave. After that they continue the Doli.

    Mr. Bhamra:
    - Now it becomes clear to him that he can not protect his daughter. She has to make her own experiences and so he lets her go.
    Mrs. Paxton:
    - She is not very tolerant
    - She also tries to protect her daughter and is against football
    3.
    The bride has to look perfect, shy and sad, because she is leaving her family. She does not have a white wedding dress. She is dressed up in red and gold.When the bride arrives, she has to wait for her bridegroom in front of the temple. The bridegroom turns up on a white horse and his mother and sisters dance then alongside the horse. Then they go into the temple for the ceremony (the bridal couple has to walk round the Guru four times etc.). After the ceremony they shower the newly-weds with petals and confetti.
    The Doli is when the bride officially leaves her own family and joins her husband’s family. It is always really sad.

    Jess is so lucky that they won the match and that the scout is impressed of her. But she forgets that her parents would never allow her to go to America. On the other hand she is sure that she does not want the life which her parents want. So she wants to try to persuade them.
    5.
    Now her sister is married and starts a new life in Teetu’s family.
    Now Jess is maybe on the maximum of her football career if she can not persuade her parents.


    Chapter 13

    Spoiler:

    1.
    The wedding is over and Jess is with Tony in the kitchen making tea for their parents and Biji. She asks him how she should ask her parents about America. Suddenly he pulls her in the living-room and tells the adults that they will mary. Jess is shocked. Then he adds that he has one condition: at first, he wants Jess to go to college, anywhere she wants. That is a great idea, but Jess does not want to lie anymore. So she tells her parents everything and with a heavy heart they agree. Jess’ father does not want that she makes the same mistake he made. She has to fight against all the prejudices and discriminations.
    It is hard, but she goes to the pitch to say Joe goodbye. She decides that they can not have a relationship. It would not work and she does not want to burden her parents again.
    Jess, Jules and their families are at the airport to say goodbye. Before they want to board the plane, Joe suddenly arrives. He tells Jess that they offered him a job to coach the men’s side, but he adds that he said no because now he can coach the girls’ side full-time and in the next year they go pro. He also told everything his father and now everything is OK.
    Suddenly serious, he asks her whether their relationship could have a chance and a moment later they kiss each other. She forgets everything around her, her family, Jules… Now she knows that she really loves him.
    Suddenly Jules screams behind them. There in the VIP area are David and Victoria Beckham. Surprised and overwhelmed Jess gazes after them and she is certain that this is a sign. It is time to go. Jess promises Joe that she will come at Christmas and then they will tell her parents about them. There is just time for the last hugs and they walk towards the sliding doors.

    5.
    To put it in a nutshell, you can see that during the book there is a big development. At the beginning Jess dreamed only of a football career and wished that her parents would understand her. She only wanted to be a normal teenager. And now, she has everything she wanted. She can live her dream, has a good friend and a boyfriend. Her parents support her and her culture is not anymore a big barrier.
    There is also a development in Joe’s life. Now, he has again contact to his father.
    I think that two cultures are grown together. At the parting, Jess’ mother gives Jules’ mother a handkerchief and this is a sign for tolerance and for acceptance.

    Meistens handelt es sich hier um Abi relevante Themen, und jeder der Abi macht, machen wird/will oder es hinter sich hat, wird wissen, dass man da jede Hilfe und alle brauchen kann, und ist auch dafür dankbar. Zwar ist das hier ein Hardwareforum aber die Schulthemen spielen sich ja im Offtopic ab und ich finde einen kleinen Schwenk in Richtung Schulportal oder gegenseitige Hilfestellung nicht schlimm.

    Mag sein aber es gab hier schon einige Threads, welche Abi Themen behandelten. Ich hab mir den ganzen Text da oben jetzt nicht durchgelesen und ich hab auch noch nie was von dem Text gehört, deswegen hätte es ja sein können.

    Ne das ist schon richtig, dass das ein abirelevantes Thema ist. Das Buch ist leicht zu verstehen, aber ich denke mal, dass man in der Qualiphase auf andere Dinge eingeht als ihr in der 8ten Klasse Nur so'ne Vermutung
    Naja, so ist das halt mit dem Zentralabi und dem Kultusministerium, es gibt immer wieder Überraschungen...
