    1. E ARC from NetgalleyOzzie and his sister Rebecca managed to escape the fate that their parents met in Nigeria and have made it to Canada after a long time spent in an orphanage. They have been adopted by a Trinidadian couple, and are settling into their new environment. Ozzie loves to play soccer at school, but when his group is forced off the field by a group of mainly Syrian soccer players, tempers flare, and the school coach arranges for the two teams to play an exhibition game to work out th [...]


    2. I like books for upper elementary and middle school student, and I think that this book might find an audience in that age range. The author writes soccer scenes that puts the reader right into the game.The book, in my opinion, has some problems. The writing is stilted and awkward at times. Maybe this was an attempt to control vocabulary. The scene about the bullying situation with some other teens felt dropped into the story to me, and I didn't care for the other students being referred to by n [...]


    3. I got an ARC in return for an honest review from NetGalley.I love this publisher and the idea of having a group of novels by different authors focusing around one sport that has interconnecting teams is one that I am really delighted by.

Ozzie loves soccer and he plays with other refugees, but not the [...]


    4. I did enjoy it. It's a quick read. It provided some interesting and useful info for middle grade readers. However, if the reader is not into soccer it could be a bit of a turn off. I know I skipped much of the soccer stuff. I really enjoyed the "memory game" and I think it could be very useful to the readers. I got my copy from Net Galley.


    5. Thank you to NetGalley for an E ARC of this book. All opinions are my own.If you have readers who are soccer fans, especially if they are developing readers, then this book is one to give some consideration. Ozzie is a Nigerian refugee, adopted along with his sister by Canadian parents. He loves to play soccer, but there is no program at his school. Ozzie builds a team to compete against Victor, a Syrian refugee, and his friends. Ozzie United and Victor United prepare for their match, and both b [...]
