Set against the backdrop of an American town that without its consent had become a vast social experiment, Outcasts United follows a pivotal season in the life of the Fugees and their charismatic coach. Warren St. John documents the lives of a diverse group of young people as they miraculously coalesce into a band of brothers, while also drawing a fascinating portrait of a fading American town struggling to accommodate its new arrivals. At the center of the story is fiery Coach Luma, who relentlessly drives her players to success on the soccer field while holding together their lives and the lives of their families in the face of a series of daunting challenges.
This fast-paced chronicle of a single season is a complex and inspiring tale of a small town becoming a global community and an account of the ingenious and complicated ways we create a home in a changing world.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I read this book because it was a Bookclub choice. I was biased because it was a YA book. I was completely shocked and pleased when I finished the book. It was a great discussion book. I then recommended it to my other Bookclub where it was received with scepticism but turned out to be one of our best discussions ever. My daughter and I made a road trip to Clarkston which was very interesting.
Who was your favorite character and why?
