Fierce

How Competing for Myself Changed Everything

By Aly Raisman

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

Discover Aly Raisman's inspiring story of dedication, perseverance, and learning to think positively even in the toughest times on her path to gold medal success in two Olympic Games in this motivational memoir--now in paperback!

Aly Raisman's skills as a gymnast have taken her to two Olympics (so far), and her charm and can-do attitude have made her a media darling and an inspiration to young girls everywhere. Not one to rest on her laurels (or rest at all!), Aly is excited to share her story and the wisdom she has gained on her path to success. She offers readers an empowering message through her story, one that she learned the hard way: that knowing what you're capable of and having the faith in yourself to doubt the doubters is key.

Fierce takes readers behind the scenes and gives them an inside look at what it takes to be elite; the struggles and lessons Aly has experienced through her training and competitions; never-before-published personal anecdotes that show how Aly balanced school, social life, and being one of the world's best gymnasts. Aly's story is enhanced with motivational tips throughout, as well as a full-color photo insert, social media and journal excerpts, and other documentation of her inspiring story.

Biographical Notes

Aly Raisman is a gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast who captained the U.S. team to victories in 2012 and 2016. She has won six Olympic medals overall, and was a member of two gold medal-winning World Championships teams. A native of Needham, Massachusetts, Aly's love for the sport can be traced back to a "mommy & me" gymnastics class she took as an eighteen-month-old. Aly is a leader on and off the floor, and a fierce advocate for body positivity.

Earth Hates Me

Ruby Karp
Authors:
Ruby Karp

Earth Hates Me presents a look inside the mind of the modern teenager--from a modern teenager's perspective. Fifteen-year-old Ruby Karp addresses the issues facing every highschooler, from grades to peer pressure to Snapchat stories, and unpacks their complicated effects on the teen psyche. With dashes of humor throughout, Ruby advises her peers on the importance of feminism ("not just the Spice Girls version"), how to deal with jealousy and friend break-ups, family life, and much more. The book takes an in-depth look at the effect of social media on modern teens and the growing pressures of choosing the right college and career. With Ruby's powerful underlying message "we are more than just a bunch of dumb teenagers obsessed with our phones," Earth Hates Me is the definitive guide to being a teen in the modern age.
