FIGHTBALL: Dying of Suck (a review)

I'm here at the Rants doing a book review. Or is it book report? The feeling of impending doom is the same….

I have the honor of attempting a riveting review for a book I am in love with.

That book?


I’ve been a fan of Kris at her blog, Pretty All True for about five years. During that time I have laughed, snorted, giggled, and chuckled as she wrote about her two very independent and totally opposite in personality daughters.


Fightball is an entire book filled with those interactions. From Maj and her BOLD LETTERED tirades to Kallan and her unstoppable imagination tinged with edgy mischievousness.

There is also the supporting cast, Mark, the husband who has the wit to choose his battles wisely, and the dogs, Persie, the Labrador, and Jack, the insane Lakeland Terrier.

I’m on my third reading of Fightball. I was lucky enough to have received an ARC copy, so I could identify typos and such. However, I was too wrapped up in snort-laughing to have accomplished that task. Good thing she had more observant readers.

Of course I ordered the actual ebook! And if you're looking for a laugh a minute you should too. Or…you could win a copy by commenting on this review.

Yes, three lucky people will win their very own copy of Fightball! It will be accomplished with the high tech method of writing names on paper and a blind draw. 

You can find Kris at these popular sites;
Her Blog, Pretty All True
PrettyallTrue on Twitter
Pretty All True on Facebook
Her Amazon author page. 

And don't forget you can find FIGHTBALL: Dying of Suck on Amazon.

So let’s get with the commenting people!

  3. I'm not really anonymous, but I can't figure out how to do the id correctly ... I have none of the proper accounts, apparently. Enter me as Gary ... Kris knows who I am, even if she won't give me a free book without making me comment.

  4. Seriously? She lets him comment to win a copy while I am left begging? Put me down as Melody, sitting at Kris' computer while she makes me some coffee.

  10. That must be a good book if you read an arc and forgot to look for typos. =)

  11. Luckily, I had my older daughter Maj to help me out. "Mother, I've made a list of the mistakes you made, including the one where you decided to have a second child. I'm assuming you're only going to address my editing suggestions, but just in case ..."
