A racially diverse youth soccer team comprised largely of immigrant players from a multitude of different countries, races, and religions comes together to achieve the unthinkable in this entertaining true account of inclusion, acceptance, and brotherhood on the tattered road to victory. The story tells how this diverse collection of immigrant boys and their families bonded with the existing White American players and families, coming together to overcome numerous challenges, adversity, and racism. Though they had little in common, other than their love of the game, they became an extended family of sorts and learned to embrace one another and celebrate their differences on their path to winning several state championships. A truly inspirational story for our country and our world and a unifying message for these turbulent times.

We All Wore Blue by Emerson Robbins is an inspiring read. While it mainly focuses on a soccer team that went on to win a championship, it is more than that. This is a story of a group of young players who came together, from middle-class white families and immigrant families which bonded very well to form a formidable team. The players unite, putting aside their race, nationality, and religious differences. The book was a passionate read and the author was able to blend moments of humor with some of the real-world struggles that his players faced.
