ABOUT LOTTIE THE RAVEN
AND THE REAL LIFE BELFAST RAVENS!
“School. First love. A bully on her team. A pushy (but well-meaning!) Dad. A knack for finding herself in various scrapes on and off the pitch. 14 year old footballing genius Lottie McDermott has a lot on her plate.
Follow the Belfast-set adventures of an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent as she navigates life as an accident-prone, socially awkward teen in this funny, heartfelt debut novel from writer and award-winning broadcaster David O’Reilly (aka Rigsy).
Suitable for readers aged 9-14 and football fans of all ages!"
The football team in the novel is named after the real-life Belfast Ravens, which Rigsy and his Lisa founded together in 2017. The club now have two teams playing in the official NIWFA here in Northern Ireland.
