Tournament FugeeBook - 2017
"A talented thirteen-year-old goalkeeper, Victor Bayazid, is asked to join and captain a soccer team, the GTA Gazelles, to compete in the "Thank You, Canada" tournament. The tournament brings together teams of Syrian refugees from across the country to play in Vancouver. But Victor is haunted by memories of losing his grandfather during their escape from war-torn Syria. And he has to leave his younger brother Gabriel at home, sick with pneumonia. Filled with worry about his family which is affecting his concentration on the field, Victor faces conflict when a teammate challenges his captaincy of the team."--Provided by publisher.
