A father's true story of his high-school-age son's winning soccer season. Soccer Dad is simultaneously the candid reflections of a devoted father and the enthusiastic observations of a diehard soccer fan. When Matt enters his senior year of high school, it is not without myriad parenting concerns on the part of his father, author W. D. Wetherell. What is his role in shaping his son's future? What will life be like when Matt is away at college? And what of Matt's soccer season?—Is Matt's success in soccer just setting him up for disappointment later in life? With the pensive eye of an artist, Wetherell follows his son's team from field to field and win to win and ruminates on topics ranging from soccer's esoteric appeal in America to the conflicting emotions of a parent sending his youngest child out into the world. Reflecting on his own experiences both as a participant and a spectator, Wetherell offers a paean to the sport of soccer and the joys of parenthood. Updated and revised with a new chapter that brings Soccer Dad fully up to date, this is an exciting new edition that readers will enjoy for years to come.

There isnt a pain as excruciating as watching your mother die in front of your eyes. The only thing that makes it worse is not knowing what could have caused her to end a perfectly normal life. As events unfold, Sheena finds out a harsh, impalpable truth about her saint mother that makes her question everything shed grown up observing and helplessly believing in. The big bundle of dark mysteries slowly begins to unravel, and Sheenas highs and lows are finally put to bed when she finds out the twisted circumstantial reason that drove her mother to end her life. Through this novel, the author asks questions that were too afraid to ask and initiate suppressed conversations that have the potential to uproot the ingrained gender biases. Women who often try to look for a life partner in their husbands but end up finding a dictator instead will relate to the story on another level. Global exposure gained from living in cities like Los Angeles and Sydney forces the author to challenge the limitations of the misogynistic Indian society. By the end of this heart-wrenching story, readers are forced to rethink right versus wrong and reshape practices that have become the soul of our Indian culture.
