In Arcady's Goal, by Newbery Honor author Eugene Yelchin, for twelve-year-old Arcady, soccer is life. Sent to live in a children's home after his parents are declared enemies of the state, he plays to win his dinner, and to maintain his sanity. When a visiting inspector decides to adopt him, Arcady questions his motivations. Who could want an enemy of the people as a son? In his new life, Arcady will come to discover the power of believing in and loving another person-and himself.
