When thousands of Somali refugees resettled in Lewiston, Maine, a struggling, overwhelmingly white town, longtime residents grew uneasy. Then the mayor wrote a letter asking Somalis to stop coming, which became a national story. While scandal threatened to subsume the town, its high school's soccer coach integrated Somali kids onto his team, and their passion began to heal old wounds.
Taking listeners behind the tumult of this controversial team and onto the pitch where the teammates vied to become state champions and achieved a vital sense of understanding, One Goal is a timely story about overcoming the prejudices that divide us.

An all around great listen that shows you the best of America.
To start with, this book opens up a culture to the listener and introduces to us what refugees faced when they came to the states. It dives into the hardships these families experienced not only in their native countries, but in their adopted country. It shines a much deserved light on the people in one community who helped unite a town with the game of soccer. My kids also loved listening to this. It’s a must listen and I highly recommend it.
