Reviews for Offsides

Purchase | Books

“The controversy over sports mascots that stereotype Native Americans is effectively explored here within the rubric of high-school soccer. [A] star player['s]…struggles are realistically portrayed…Fast-paced game scenes alternating with thoughtful passages focusing on Tom’s developing maturity make for a balanced, enjoyable read.”
—Booklist Recommendation: Gr. 6-10

“…it’s the moral tone that sets it apart from other David and Goliath sports stories…The culminating soccer game with the Warriors is a rousing model of sports-writing for young readers-even those who don’t know much about soccer will be drawn in.” (Fiction. 10+) —Kirkus Reviews
