Eve Ainsworth's feminist coming-of-age retelling of the historical events leading up to the formation of the famous Preston football team the Dick, Kerr Ladies shines a light on another momentous moment in this history. It's 1917, and Britain is at war. Shy teenager Hettie wants to help the war effort, and signs up to work in the local Dick, Kerr & Co. munitions factory. She's nervous, but she has no idea quite how much her life is about to change… For inside this factory are young women who are about to make sporting history. Can Hettie find the courage to join them, and in doing so, find her own place in the world? Based on the thrilling true story of the Dick, Kerr Ladies team – football's forgotten legends. AGES: 9 plus AUTHOR: Eve Ainsworth is a public speaker, creative workshop coordinator and award-winning author who draws from her extensive work with teenagers managing emotional and behavioural issues to write authentic, honest and real novels for young people and adults.
