Life is changing too quickly for Alecia. Getting used to a new school and a new stepfather is bad enough, but now old friends are starting to behave in strange new ways.
Alecia's soccer team, the Vancouver Burrards, is the one stable thing in her life. Everything else is new or changing: a new school, a new stepfather.
When Anne, Alecia's friend and the Burrards' best player, decides to quit playing, Alecia decides to fight to keep the team together. She soon learns, however, that life's hardest matches are fought off the soccer pitch.
Alecia's Challenge shows how the struggles and joys of life and sport are intertwined.
