From the award-winning author of Pearl Verses the World and Toppling comes a story about connections, the ways they are made and what happens when they are lost.
When you’re part of the team
is a place of refuge
But when you’re out of the team
the sideline changes.
Suddenly it’s the loneliest place
of them all.
After a devastating football injury, Blake struggles to cope with life on the sideline. Jolene, a gifted but conflicted hockey player, wants nothing more than for her dad to come home. And soccer-loving refugee, Amed, wants to belong. On the surface, it seems they have nothing in common. Except sport.
A touching and inspirational story about the things that bind us all.
