Fight by Susan Fanetti

You know you’re in for a challenge when the introduction to a book comes with a warning. As a reader who doesn’t stress about triggers in a story, I followed the advice for the brave and skipped right on to chapter one. It was a good move because I believe even though there are hard… Read more »
