Strike a Rock The Story of Thembi Kgatlana

by Nik Kirkinis. Published by Jacana Media

This is an important book. Unusually, it focuses on the world of South African women’s football. But more than football, it is the story of Thembi Kgatlana, the girl who rose from the streets of Mohlakeng to become the continent’s best footballer and a global superstar. This is a story about the incredible group of women who carry South African football on their backs. This is also a story about culture, about identity, about family and addiction. This is a soaring tale about hope, about defeating the odds, defying stereotypes and achieving the impossible. This book will thrill and inspire you. If you read one biography this year, let it be this one.
