Kicking Off by Eve Ainsworth
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?
