Alecia's soccer team, the Vancouver Burrards, is the one stable thing in her life. Everything else is new or changing: a new school, a new stepfather.

When Anne, Alecia's friend and the Burrards' best player, decides to quit playing, Alecia decides to fight to keep the team together. She soon learns, however, that life's hardest matches are fought off the soccer pitch.

Alecia's Challenge shows how the struggles and joys of life and sport are intertwined.

"This is a welcome addition as many girls play soccer and few books are written about girls participation in this sport."

- Nancy Gelin Resource Links

"You do not have to be interested in soccer to enjoy this little book."

- Elizabeth Cran The Charlottetown Guardian

SANDRA DIERSCH has written nine other books for kids and teens, including No Contact and Home Court Advantage, which is a Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Books for Kids and Teens selection. She lives in Maple Ridge, BC, with her husband and young daughter.
