Outcasts United: A Refugee Team, an American Town by Warren St. John

I read this book awhile ago and found it very interesting. A peek into the issues that refugees have to deal with in coming to America. Not only are they often coming from traumatic situations, they often don't speak english and the whole way of life of American people is foreign to them. Much like if we were to transport ourselves to a third world country with no prior knowledge of what to expect and not be able to speak their language. I think we'd all feel a little lost and alone.

This book is about a group of refugees who are pulled together in the spirit of sportsmanship and love of soccer. It's also about a coach who cared. I recommend this book to anyone concerned with the refugees of our world. It is inspiring and uplifting.
