There just isn't enough contemporary YA Christian fiction, so when I discovered that Lori Z. Scott has not only written it, she centered it in sports and tackled tough topics, I knew we had a winner. Listen in and see what you'll find in her books.

Danger--from the outside. That's not what you expect with sports fiction. You expect injuries and team rivalries--maybe petty competitive nonsense among the team.  You don't expect murderous men or traffickers.

But Lori Scott wasn't afraid to go there--to tackle the real dangers teens face today all in a safe zone like sports.  I love the concept and I'm eager to read the books after having a great conversation about it all.  Win/win/win.

 Offsides by Lori Z. Scott

 Dani Stevens knew senior year was going to be something else-with her last season on the soccer team, the possible strain of losing a friendship, and crushes? All the crushes.

But she didn't expect to be on the lookout for a sex trafficking ring in her town. When a young girl in her neighborhood seems to be in trouble with a pimp, Dani will do whatever she can to find out what she can and get the girl safely back home.

Unbeknownst to Dani, there could be another predator on the loose. And if she doesn't watch her back, she could just end up being his next victim.
