A powerful memoir from one of Britain's most inspiring women.

Eni Aluko has been a star of women's football for over a decade, with over one hundred England caps and thirty three goals and a list of honours as long as your arm. But there is much more to Eni than a keen eye for goal.

Given that her childhood hero was Atticus Finch, it was only natural that she went on to achieve a first-class honours degree in Law and studied for the New York bar exam while playing in the States. She’s a volunteer champion for UN women, was the first female pundit on Match of the Day and a star analyst for ITV at the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Despite all of these phenomenal achievements, Eni is perhaps most well-known as the player at the centre of the racism row which forced the FA into an embarrassing apology and knocked England manager Mark Sampson from his post. Throughout the entire scandal she remained admirably composed and dignified, as ultimately she was called to testify at a parliamentary select committee hearing.

These days she’s rubbing shoulders with Christiano Ronaldo at Juventus, whilst also writing a weekly column for the Guardian.
