Arcady lives in a children's home in soviet Russian after his parents are declared enemies of the state. His soccer skills are his means of survival. Given a chance to leave the brutal children's home, Arcady holds on to what he knows- soccer. But survival outside will depend on learning skills other than those needed on the field- like trust. Sports and historical fiction unite to create a book for soccer players and classrooms. ~ Reviewed by Marika McCoola
