When Ozzie's parents disappeared from their home in Nigeria, he and his sister Rebecca were taken to an orphanage. Two years later, they have been adopted by Canadian parents and live in ethnically diverse Scarborough. With no soccer program in their school, Ozzie and the other Nigerian kids compete with a team of Syrian refugees -- led by Victor -- for time on the field. Ozzie has come to hate change, but an exhibition match between Ozzie United and Victor United has Ozzie taking charge of his team, while worrying that a job offer his mom receives might mean his whole family has to leave Scarborough for good.

The soccer match is such a success that Ozzie and Victor are asked to unite their teams into a single force to challenge the division champions. A school soccer program for all the students is on the line. Can Ozzie tackle change head-on by teaming up with Victor to make two groups of resilient refugees into one team? And how can it be worth it if he has to leave his school anyway?

This book is the second of a new set of novels about soccer teams of young refugees who have escaped war-torn areas of the world and moved to Canada.
