I liked this book better looking back on it than when I was reading it. I think the author's use of the word "snow" instead of cursing irritated me (38 times?)

In any case, KBB has written a book about sexual abuse that can be read by tweens/teens. How cool is that? Della has always been protected by her older sister, Suki, with her mother in prison for cooking meth. Upon the mother's incarceration, the system fails, allowing them to stay with the mother's boyfriend, Clifford, who was a long haul truck drive, typically gone weekdays. Arriving home early on a random Thursday when Suki is at the movies with friends, a tragedy is narrowly averted. Suki and Della get moved into foster care, with a responsible woman, who truly wants to help. Della has been taught to stand up for herself, and feels the need to stand up for a new friend too, getting herself in trouble at school. Meanwhile, Suki is having nightmares for the obvious reason, refuses help, and Della is troubled that she did nothing for her sister. Well done. ( )

An excellent book for middle school and youngish high school students. The protagonist and her sister were sexually abused before the story starts, so there is no horrific scenes. It's more about the girls and how they are coping with the many challenges in their lives. Not all middle schoolers are ready for this content, but it's done in a way that won't overwhelm most kids. There are no cuss words in book. Della often cusses, but she inserts the word "snow" instead of the bad word. Very cleverly written and offers hope and even some advice for readers. ( )

This is a deep novel about sisterhood and sexual abuse. Della and Suki are the sisters in this book that go through a hard situation that aligns them together. In this book it explodes the stigma around child sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is a touchy subject but throughout the novel it involves a great deal of compassion and humor. This book is a must read and I think it could be great for students learning about abuse and they could obtain more knowledge about it through a story of sisters. ( )

Fighting Words is a powerful novel to say the least. It is a hopeful, heartbreaking, and confronting story about sisterhood and sexual abuse. Della, the story's main character, and her sister Suki have been there for each other through all of life's trials and tribulations. This includes when their mom was sent to prison, when their mom's boyfriend took them in, and even when that same boyfriend did something so horrific "they had to run fast". This novel tells the story of these two sisters, who are bonded by their love for one another and trauma they both have experienced. Fighting Words "explodes the stigma around child sexual abuse and leavens an intense tale with compassion and humor." It is not only a book about trauma and the scars it leaves on bodies, minds, and hearts, but is a book about healing, strength, and resilience. I believe this is a must-read for people of all ages because of how real, raw, and necessary it is. This novel was life-changing for me, and I know it will have a huge impact on my middle school students. Like the story emphasizes, I want my future students to know they are not alone and never will be. ( )

This was a very hard book to read. I knew what was coming the whole time and I wondered how the author could possibly handle sexual assault from a father figure for middle graders. She did a great job. I loved the snowy awesome way she handled cursing. I liked how she kept alluding to the worst part that she hasn't mentioned yet. I was enthralled throughout--couldn't put it down--and shell-shocked at the end. ( )
