Publisher's Summary

Follow Sam Kerr’s incredible journey from playing Aussie Rules as a kid to becoming one of the world’s greatest athletes as she prepares to captain the Matildas in the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Sam Kerr is widely considered to be one of the best female footballers of all time.

This is her incredible football journey to the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup, from making the switch to soccer to becoming one of the best female strikers in the world. Sam gives us insights into what keeps her motivated, how she handles the pressures of life as a professional athlete and what she believes is really important in life. Inside you will find:

  • facts about the FIFA World Cup
  • everything you want to know about the Matildas
  • amazing facts about Sam – her early days, family life, teams, playing for Chelsea and the Matildas.

Inaccurate!

I thought I really enjoyed this quick listen, and learnt a lot about Sam’s achievements. After finishing it, I did a bit of research and found it contains many factual errors, some quite large. This is a huge disappointment on the legacy Sam has built, especially given this book is aimed at younger readers. I don’t know if she is aware this is out there listed as written by her, but I hope one day she writes a complete (and accurate) biography. I gave this two purely for her list of accolades, which is so impressive.

Short and factual

This was a quick wrap up of Sam’s history and life with soccer. There are a few quotes thrown in but it feels like it was written for a school project rather than a novel. There is some odd questions specifically around Nike that was bizarre.

The background of Sam

The background of Sam Kerr stood out to me as I never knew anything about Sam. This has helped me learn a lot more about Sam

You’ve made your mark, Sam!

Could not be more inspired by this force in women’s sports (and sports generally but I’m just so proud to claim her as one of the girls).
