Our Beautiful Game

Written by: Lou Kuenzler
Publisher: Faber & Faber

Polly Nabb is no stranger to trouble.

When her brother Joe is sent to serve in the trenches, all Polly wants is to kick a ball about and forget the war. Mam has other ideas, and makes her stay home to help with endless chores. But football is something Polly is prepared to fight for – it’s her life! She’s determined to do whatever it takes to fulfil her dream and show the world that football is not just for boys…

A stand-out novel inspired by the incredible true stories of female football legends like Lily Parr and Alice Woods.
