Series: Soccer United: Team Refugee

Rating: 0 vote(s).


Two years after his birth parents disappeared from their home in Nigeria, newly adopted Ozzie moves to Canada. At his new school, Ozzie and the other Nigerian kids compete for time on the soccer field with a team of Syrian refugees — led by Victor. But then they are asked to combine their teams to challenge the division champions. A school soccer program for all the students is on the line. Can Ozzie and Victor unite to make two groups of resilient refugees into one team?

Team Fugee is one of four new books that offer readers insight into the experiences of refugee youth as they adjust to life in North America.

Awards

Commended - Best Books for Kids & Teens -- Canadian Children's Book Centre - 2017

"The plot moved along well, and had lots of side plots that made the book more interesting. The adult characters were all very understanding and worked well with the kids, teaching them (and the reader) without being condescending and preachy." Would Recommend

- Margaret Burris, Reviewer, NetGalley

"I enjoyed the book…4/5 Stars"

- Odessa Wilson , Reviewer, NetGalley

"In addition to soccer and family, this slim volume touches on many topics, including physical disabilities, literacy challenges, adoption, orphans, civil war, racial profiling, and Black Canadian history…good for a novel study for a group of reluctant readers..."

- Ruth McMahon, Librarian, CM: Canadian Review of Materials
