About the book
"Outcasts United" follows a pivotal season in the life of a refugee soccer team, their families and their charismatic coach as they struggle to build new lives in a small town overwhelmed by change. Theirs is a story about resilience in the face of extraordinary hardship, the power of one person to make a difference and the daunting challenge of creating community in a place where people seem to have so little in common.
