Through the lens of a youth soccer team, "Outcasts United" offers glimpses of refugee life in the U.S. and the conflicts that brought these asylum-seekers to Clarkston, GA. Included are immigrants' stories as well as insight into the attitudes of long-time residents, many of whom resist and resent the changing demographics of their small southern town. No in-depth knowledge of soccer is necessary to enjoy this book.
