Sue Baker's view...

Is being a Footballer’s WAG as glamorous as some people think? The answer is, of course, no – staying glamorous even for a trip to the supermarket takes a lot of hard work, the paparazzi always there to catch you with an unguarded expression or unfortunate choice of outfit. For some it’s not what Mrs Pankhurst fought for, others though will want to hear the gossip, get behind the headlines and find out the secrets in I am the Secret WAG.

Synopsis

I am the Secret WAG The True Story of My Life as an England Footballer's Wife by

Money, cars, homes, holidays, parties and all the shoes you've ever dreamed of. The life of a footballer's wife or girlfriend must be as glamorous and exciting as her other half, right? But behind the closed doors of the Wag's world, there are all the pressures as well as pleasures of success. So what is it really like? The Secret Wag lays bare the reality of existence under the celebrity spotlight. It is about fashion and fame, sex and scandal, but, like the bestselling Secret Footballer books, is also an honest appraisal of life on and off the field of play which will change your preconceptions about footballers and their partners. It is sassy, outspoken, funny and above all, written from the heart. Meet The Secret Wag.

Reviews

Funny, honest and intriguing... written anonymously by a real WAG, it lifts the lid on the glamour and luxury of their lives, but also addresses scandals, the pressure of keeping up appearances and the reality of being part of a famous couple. * Closer * Mesmerising... a rollicking account of her career as a WAG... Watch out, Victoria Beckham. * Daily Mail * Funny, outspoken and sassy... reveals the reality behind the headlines. * Daily Express * For those who loved Footballers
Wives, this book is a must

-pack. It's a fascinating insight into the world of being in the spotlight. OK, it's not highbrow, but it's definitely entertaining. * Look - holiday reads must-have books * A juicy expose of what it's like being married to a man on a weekly six-figure salary but also rebutting some of the myths that surround Wags... That honesty makes this a great read, and you won't look at Coleen and co in quite the same light again. * Sunday Express *
