The Rooftop

0 0 5 Author: Toby Hammerschlag
Four friends, four very different stories.

The Rooftop is set a against a quintessential Sydney background. At Darlinghurst East Public School, Emma, Maha, Simon and Talia, learn about themselves and each other through the unusual combination of Scripture class and netball.

As Mr. Zulman reveals the story of the Exodus to the students, they reveal their own stories to each other: Simon's parents are separated and warring with each other, Talia's dyslexia makes the classroom an everyday struggle, Maha's family is facing deportation back to war-torn Iraq, and Emma, who has lived all her life in Sydney, begins for the first time to appreciate the value of freedom.

Outside of class as the netball season progresses, freedom takes on a new meaning for the four students when on the very day of the netball finals, Maha and her family face the very real prospect of deportation.
