Alecia plays soccer for the Burrards, a great Vancouver team. She plays well, she has good friends, and the Burrards’ coach is her loving step-dad. Then Lexi, a new player, joins the team. Lexi gives her teammates such a hard time that the Burrards begin to fall apart. It’s up to Alecia to find out what makes Lexi so difficult.
Helped by the winning cast of characters that made Alecia’s Challenge a success, the action in Offside! never lets up, both on and off the field.
What people are saying:
“The soccer scenes are … convincing and well done, representing a useful background against which are played out the real situations of family life, domestic problems and the business of growing up.” John Walker
