Three Lionesses

Three Lionesses

Find your team, build self-belief, embrace your inner Lioness


An empowering and uplifting guide from THREE legendary Lionesses, Ella Toone, Georgia Stanway and Nikita Parris.

Lionesses are brave. They fiercely look out for one another. They stick together. And they will roar as loud as they need to, to make sure their voices are heard.

Ella, Georgia and Nikita have learned so much from football that can apply to everyday life, from joining a new squad, to stepping up to take a penalty, and getting back up when life (or a footballer) knocks you down. With the true stories of how they got to where they are today and tons of practical tips, this book will help young readers embrace who they are, ignite their spark, go after their goals and find their team - because no Lioness is complete without their pride.

Are you ready to embrace your inner Lioness?

Written with Sunday Times bestselling author Cheryl Rickman

About the authors

Ella Toone

Ella, Georgia and Nikita were all part of the Euro 2022 Lionesses squad. Ella has scored 16 goals for the senior squad and is the first woman to wear the iconic number 7 shirt for Manchester United. Georgia has 49 senior caps for England and it was her goal that secured England a place in the Euros semi-final. Nikita was the WSL top goal scorer of all time in 2019-2020 - and when she was 11 there wasn't a girls' team so she set up her own and they went on to win the league!
