A timeless story of football, friendship and determination from acclaimed author Rebecca Stevens. It’s 1918. Lily spends her days working in a munitions factory, her nights picking metal out of her hair, and her lunchtimes kicking a ball with her workmates.
Together they form a football team, the Rockets, and a league soon follows.
But when the war ends, the girls lose both their jobs and their football.
Not Lily. If her only chance of being a goalie is to play with the men, then that’s what she’ll do!
