Review:

I loved this #OwnVoices contemporary YA set in Argentina!

An anthem to following your dream, despite your family’s and community’s rules and expectations. This story touches on the dangers many women face to just live their daily lives, and how they are portrayed as deserving of the violence against them. It addresses the struggle it takes to rise above those chains and cling to a dream. To refuse to let someone else save you, and instead to save yourself by sticking to your goals and your heart.

I do love fútbol (soccer), so the parts about the passion and the pain and sweat and disappointments resonate with me. Even if you aren’t a sports lover, you won’t be lost by the passages about it. I think, though the lens of their passion for the sport, it will expand your compassion for the characters’ love and struggle, and the family they build together.
 

Thank you to Algonquin Young Readers and NetGalley for a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
