I Am the Secret WAG - The Secret WAG

"a fun read and told exactly what it's like to be a WAG, both the good and the bad sides of it"

"the Secret WAG talks a lot about how hard it was to give up her career and basically live off her husband's earnings, perhaps I'm just bitter but I didn't feel a massive amount of sympathy here"

"I loved reading about the bitchiness in the Players' Lounge and about the various different types of WAGs"

"it was a fun read and I would add it to your suitcase for reading this Summer"
