Furia: SCC Library Book Club Fall 2021: Home


About Our Current Book

Our Current Read: Furia by Yamile Saied Méndez 

How do you reconcile your cultural norms and expectations with your dreams?

Camila lives a double life. In her Argentinian home, she is a careful daughter, living within her parents’ narrow expectations. On the fútbol field, she is La Furia, a powerhouse of skill and talent. When her team qualifies for the South American tournament, Camila gets the chance to see just how far those talents can take her.

But the path ahead isn’t easy. Her parents don’t know about her passion. They wouldn’t allow a girl to play fútbol. As her life becomes more complicated, Camila is forced to face her secrets and make her way in a world with no place for the dreams and ambition of a girl like her.
