Team Fugee

Written by Dirk McLean
Published by Lormier Children & Teens

Two years after his birth parents disappeared from their home in Nigeria, newly adopted Ozzie moves to Canada. At his new school, Ozzie and the other Nigerian kids compete for time on the soccer field with a team of Syrian refugees–led by Victor. But then they are asked to combine their teams to challenge the division champions. A school soccer program for all the students is on the line. Can Ozzie and Victor unite to make two groups of resilient refugees into one team? Team Fugee is one of four new books that offer readers insight into the experiences of refugee youth as they adjust to life in North America.
