May 2016 saw Leicester City with the first-ever league win in its 132-year history. Only a year earlier, the team was in last place mid-season and in danger of being bumped to a lower tier. With intense resolve and the arrival of a new coach, Claudio Ranieri, everything changed. Ranieri strategized and celebrated the team's notoriously "simple," counterintuitive playing style. With his encouragement--and highly motivating pizza parties--Leicester City soon had win after win, and jaw after jaw began to drop. Today, experts say this incredible turn of events is not only one of the most amazing achievements in soccer, but one of the most incredible upsets in the history of sports. With an engaging narrative and profiles of key players, Abbeville's Leicester City tells this heartwarming story of perseverance, perfect for any young reader who loves a great David and Goliath story.
