Britt-Marie ends up in the small, economically depressed town of Borg when she's desperate for a job after separating from her husband, Kent. Her job in Borg involves working at the town's soon to be shuttered recreation center. Life there revolves around hanging out at the local pizza place and playing soccer. Soccer is something that Britt-Marie has no interest in and really doesn't understand, so when she finds herself the coach of the local team of kids it's really outside her comfort zone. In fact, interacting with the residents who are. at times, quirky and eccentric, might be just what Britt-Marie needs to change her life and what the town needs, too.
I'm a librarian with a background in Reader's Advisory who left librarianship for domestic...uh...bliss.
From 1992-2003 I worked at the Downers Grove (IL) Public Library. I served on YALSA's Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults (1998-2000, chair 2000) and Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers (2001-2003, chair 2002). I wrote the article "Zap! Woosh! Kerplow! Build High Quality Graphic Novel Collections With Impact" (School Library Journal, January 1997). I am a substitute Reference Librarian at the Indian Prairie Public Library.
