Fight by Clarissa Wild

  Mocked. Scolded. Smeared. Betrayed.

From an early age, shy nerd girl Autumn Blakewood didn't know how to fend for herself. Teased and bullied her whole life, she's withdrawing more and more. Not even her broken family can help her get through high school.
Her only friends, Brody and Evie, are both social recluses too, and they seek comfort in each other's support. However, Autumn's friends can't always protect her from her malicious classmates who seem set on destroying what's left of her heart.
When Autumn thinks her life can't get any worse, devastating news rips her family apart. It's up to her to pick up the pieces of her life and find a way to fix everything. Will she find the courage to fight?

Fight is a short story prelude to the Fierce series and contains about 8500 words.

What a wonderful way to start a series.  Clarissa gave us 47 pages to introduce Autumn Blakewood to us readers.  Her world was built on being bullied as a young girl to the point when she graduated high school and was heading out to college.  When she gets to college she will be reunited with Brody, the one person in her life that always stood by her till he had to leave for college.  This time she will be bringing her new friend Evie who stepped in when Brody left and together the girls survived the games and evilness that others threw at them. 
While she is heading towards her future, she is leaving a world of the unknown.  Will her mom and dad make it through the drama and illness that has struck her family, will the fighting ever stop between them?  One thing is for sure, it is time to stop being the victim and start being the one her parents can count on.  Time to be the woman she was meant to be. 
I am really looking forward to the rest of this series.  I love how she let us connect with Autumn and understand where she started so we can understand what ever her future is going to bring to us.  I would make sure to join in this ride; it appears so far like this will be a good series.
