‘Refreshing, hilarious and really uplifting – I fell in love with Jackie, Ros and the rest of the squad – and everyone else will too’ HELLY ACTON, author of The Shelf
The book we need at the moment – a joyous celebration of female friendship and midlife. And as a netball player, I really did enjoy the attention to comic detail . . . Hilarious’ CAROLINE CORCORAN, author of Five Days Missing

Sometimes life throws you a curveball . . .


58-year-old Jackie Douglas thinks she has everything she wants – kids, grandchildren, and a comfortable retirement with her husband, Steve. Until one afternoon she comes home to find Steve packing a bag and her comfortable life suddenly moves out of bounds.

Her best friend Ros, a law firm boss with an appetite for life, laughter and (just the right amount of) wine, immediately leaps in to help Jackie back to her feet but soon finds herself feeling second best to Jackie’s other priorities.

Their barmaid/friend/wine protégé Jay is back home with her mum at nearly 30. Brilliant. After losing her job in London she’s returned, working in the pub job she thought she’d left behind at 18.

In tipsy search of something – anything – new, they wind up the leaders of a ramshackle, barely functional netball team: The Skids.

Facing confusing exes, divorce, betrayals, financial woes and more, Jackie, Ros and Jay are about to discover that finding your team might just be the key to turning things around…

Reviews

I'd LOVE to read a whole book of Laura's funny, clever, sweet imagination . . . it made me laugh a huge amount!
Marian Keyes
Laura is so funny and I can't wait to read this book and I hope it isn't awkward when I *actually* marry Jürgen Klopp
Sara Pascoe
It's rare to find brilliant new talent, rarer still to discover it on Twitter but Laura's thread on Klopp was my highlight of the year. I cannot wait to see what she does in book form. I shall devour it. A great shining comedic talent
Emma Kennedy
I am absolute LOVING Klopp Actually... it was my favourite, favourite birthday present.
Zoe Ball
I laughed until I cracked a rib

WOW! What an inspiring read! Refreshing, hilarious and really uplifting, it has put the biggest bounce in my step. I fell in love with Jackie, Ros and the rest of the squad - and everyone else will too. Such a brilliant story, I love love loved it!
HELLY ACTON, author of The Shelf
The book we need at the moment - a joyous celebration of female friendship and midlife. And as a netball player, I really did enjoy the attention to comic detail - the Wing Attack who runs off mid-chat to grab the ball and the Wing Defence bib always being the last one left. Hilarious.
