I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Amy Bass takes us into the classroom, the community, and the soccer field to explore all aspects of the town, and how the young men were able to achieve their successes.
The author does an excellent job doling out equal parts history, drama, and sociological study of the town of Lewiston. A reader can easily empathize with the plight of the immigrant families as they strive for their version of The American Dream.
I was constantly impressed by the coach’s drive and passion for his sport and his players. This is a great book for readers looking to be inspired by the actions of a single community in the national conversation of immigration, education, and sport.
5 out of 5 stars
