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. Its up to Alecia to find out what makes Lexi so difficult.
Helped by the winning cast of characters that made Alecias Challenge a success, the action in Offside! never lets up, both on and off the field.

SANDRA DIERSCH has written nine other books for kids and teens, including No Contact and Home Court Advantage, which is a Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Books for Kids and Teens selection. She lives in Maple Ridge, BC, with her husband and young daughter.
