Year 7 were recently lucky enough to take part in a virtual author visit with award winning teen author Eve Ainsworth. Eve talked at length about her life and books and the pupils also had the chance to ask her questions about her writing process, influences and inspirations.
Copies of Eve’s new book ‘Kicking Off’ are in the school library and tell the true story of the Dick Kerr ladies football team.
Here is an extract from the blurb..
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?
