  • Short Description
Getting used to a new school and a new stepfather is bad enough, but then Alecias best friend quits the soccer team. Alecia only joined the team to be with Anne -- she doesnt even like soccer -- but now her stepdad wont let her quit!

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.

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.
