Historical Fiction
South Bay is a leafy, commuter town on the southern shore of Long Island, New York, known for both its community spirit and successful youth soccer program. Everything changed when the town of South Bay lost 48 of its brothers and sisters in the September 11th terrorist attacks, including legendary varsity soccer coach, Dan Dunham. Amidst a cloud of sadness, with tremendous fortitude and resilience, South Bay would rise once again. On long grassy fields where they were once innocent and carefree, a team of boys, led by one of Dunham's former pupils, captures the hope and imagination of a heartbroken small town. Inspired by true events, Utopia is a personal, heartfelt story of a high school soccer team bringing a community together in the wake of 9/11.
