The South Orange River (S.O.R.) Middle School is famous for its winning sports teams. That is, until the seventh grade soccer squad comes along. Led by Ed Sitrow, who has NEVER played soccer before, this amazing team of non-jocks sets new lows in team spirit and new highs in scoring-for the other team. When they lose their first game 32-0, they're ready to call it quits. But the teachers insist that the team keep playing through the entire soccer season. They're sure that with a little time and lots of practice, Ed and his faithful teammates will improve their game. After all, the S.O.R. Losers can't get any worse-or can they? Avi brings all of his Newbery Honor-winning talents to the story of the wackiest bunch of losers since the Bad News Bears. S.O.R. Losers is a rib-tickling romp across the middle school soccer fields that's guaranteed to have children-and their parents and teachers-laughing out loud.
