Our Beautiful Game: A middle grade historical adventure.
When her brother Joe is sent to serve in the trenches, all Polly wants to do is play football and forget about the war!
Inspired by trailblazing female footballers like the legendary Lily Parr, Polly’s dramatic story celebrates those bold young players who changed attitudes to women on the pitch and salutes the unsung heroes on the home front too.
‘Full of passion and energy. From the moment we meet Polly we’re rooting for her to suceed.’ – Sophie McKenzie
‘A glorious tale of football, friendship, feminism and social history. I’m going to be raving about this book…’ – Emma Carroll
