Last Girl In: Kerry-Ann Fights to Stay in the Game

Cheryl Diane Parkinson

Celebrating cricket, Windrush families & girls in sport.

Kerry-Ann loves cricket – of course she does! Her Jamaican grandpa taught her to play as soon as she could hold a bat. Whenever she can, Kerry-Ann heads to the local club for a match with her friends.

But now some of the club’s elite cricketers want to keep the ground for themselves – and keep out Kerry-Ann and her team. So Kerry-Ann devises a daring plan to beat the bullies – and she’s about to gain inspiration from a very unexpected place.

In this time-slip tale with a touch of magic, Kerry-Ann finds out about the obstacles that her grandparents faced when they first arrived in England as part of the Windrush generation…and how she must follow in their footsteps to fight for fair play, and to keep enjoying the game that both she and her grandparents love.

A celebration of family, friendship, cricket, British Caribbean culture, Black British history and women’s sport.
