A Soccer StoryeBook - 2017
In Malaysia in 1986, soccer is ""a boys' game,"" but ardent soccer fan Maya, age 12, trains herself in soccer skills and pulls together a team at her (girls') school. Despite all odds, she wins not just an important game but a chance to go to England and watch her favorite pro team play at Wembley-and incidentally make an unsuccessful attempt to pressure her dad into rejoining the family.
