Rising action

The team's name becomes the Fugees

The city of Clarkston is currently being filled with refugees from around the world
Internal conflicts
Luma is internally struggling with how unite kids from different countries, cultures, and religions to play soccer as a team.

External conflicts
Many of the people in Clarkston are not supportive of the relocation of refugees to their city
The Fugees are no longer aloud to use the field at the community center and have to find a new place to play soccer.
The theme of this story is that one person can make a difference
during the course of this novel Luma learns how to overcome in the face of adversity and how to unite people who are different but have the same goals.
I would recommend this book because it is a true story about things that currently go on in our society that most people don't know about or choose to ignore. Also it has a positive message.
soccer symbolizes unity between the many different cultures of refugees
The American dream
The stereotyping and discrimination against refugees
"And that was one of the most beautiful games of soccer i've ever seen."
"Maybe we can find a way for everybody to work together, live together, and play together."
"what are you doing
in the united states?"
