They say sports is never just a simple story of winners and losers, but always about the game of life. There's no question that Lewiston, Maine’s championship soccer team and coach are a prime example. The team's little-engine-that-could triumph is the stuff of movies, Cinderella dreams, and page-turning book plots — an immigrant story told through the universal language of soccer. Author Amy Bass recounts the team's real-life story in her new book, “One Goal: A Coach, A Team, and the Game That Brought A Divided Town Together.” It’s our March selection for Bookmarked: The Under the Radar Book Club.
