Raised a Warrior

£12.99 £11.99

Susie Petruccelli grew up in a sports-mad, male-dominated family in California, fighting to find her own identity and path.

And she did. She won a place on the soccer programme at Harvard University and felt on top of the world – talented, strong, loved and worthy. Less than a year later, however, it had all slipped away.

The Vikki Orvice prize-winning RAISED A WARRIOR is Susie’s honest, human and cathartic story of how she, as player and mother, rediscovered herself and the love of a game that almost broke her.

Alongside, she examines the growth of the women’s game and the issues still confronting the sport as it fights for the equalities it deserves.



“Sports literature needs more stories of women who dare. More inspirational stories like Susie’s.” BILLIE JEAN KING

“Susie’s powerful and inspiring story is a worthy winner of the Vikki Orvice Prize and a true testament to what it means to be a woman in football.” JANE PURDON, CEO WOMEN IN FOOTBALL

“It is an honour to hear that I was a little girl’s first soccer hero. It is so important to see and support all players and fans of our beautiful game.” PELÉ
