From the Series Soccer United: Team Refugee
Victor is the captain of a soccer team of recently arrived refugee kids. He struggles to focus on his game during a national tournament because he is haunted by the memory of losing his grandfather back in war-torn Syria and he is worrying about his brother who is at home sick with pneumonia. Can Victor find a way to take care of his family, himself, and his team?
Tournament Fugee is one of four books that offer readers insight into the experiences of refugee youth as they adjust to life in North America.
