PFA member and North Carolina Courage forward Mille Farrow has released her debut book, Brave Enough Not to Quit, telling the story of her battles with injuries and overcoming mental health issues, in order to help others overcome adversity. 

Millie dreamt of being a footballer from a young age and signed her first professional contract at 19. She has played for top clubs in England (including Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Leicester City) and America, but the road to realising her girlhood dream has not been a smooth one.

Four major injuries in her teens and early 20s threatened to derail her career, alongside her battles with obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. But Millie was brave enough not to quit. She remains determined to succeed and wants to use her experiences to help others overcome their own setbacks.

In Brave Enough Not to Quit, Millie speaks from the heart, while her friends, England stars Fran Kirby and Emile Heskey, also share their experiences.

Millie’s autobiography is an uplifting story of overcoming adversity, helped by family, friends and expert coaches Vernon Sankey and Rob Blackburne
