Play Like a Girl: Life Lessons from the Soccer Field


Kate T. Parker’s 2017 bestseller Strong Is the New Pretty: A Celebration of Girls Being Themselves struck a chord throughout the nation and beyond, challenging the idea of what it means to be feminine, while The Heart of a Boy: Celebrating the Strength and Spirit of Boyhood positively redefined masculinity at a moment when the country was grappling with how to raise boys to become good people.

In her newest work, Play Like a Girl: Life Lessons from the Soccer Field, Kate T. Parker captures the joy, confidence, focus, and camaraderie of the world’s most beautiful game: soccer. A powerful collection of color and black-and-white photographs, Play Like a Girl reveals how soccer challenges girls and women to become their best selves, allowing them to test their limits, find strength in friendship, appreciate their body’s power, and learn how to pick themselves up when they’ve been knocked down.
