Winner of the Maine Literary Award Called a€œrich and multidimensionala€ by School Library Journal in a starred review, Out of Nowhere follows Tom Bouchard: captain and star of the Enniston High School soccer team; boyfriend to one of the prettiest, most popular girls; and third in his class, likely to have his pick of any college (if he ever bothers filling out his applications). But life in his idyllic small Maine town quickly gets turned upside down after the events of 9/11. Enniston has become a a€œsecondary migrationa€ location for Somali refugees seeking a better life after their country is destroyed by war. Tom hasna€™t thought much about his Somali classmates until four of them join the soccer team, including Saeed. He comes out of nowhere on the field to make impossible shots, and suddenly the team is winning, dominating even. But when Saeeda€™s eligibility is questioned and Tom screws up in a big way, hea€™s left to grapple with a culture he doesna€™t understand and take responsibility for his actions. The refugees came out of nowhere and vanish just as quickly. And Tom may find himself going nowhere, too, if he doesna€™t start trying to get somewhere. From the Hardcover edition.Realized he was in Porta#39; land, with a bunch of his other teammates, when the power went out and his Tracfone ran out of minutes. Too clueless about the weather and what a nora#39;easter was all about to realize he should have stayed put .
