FIRST IN A SERIES: Fightball: Dying of Suck … is the exaggerated and hyperbolic and mildly fictionalized story of Maj and Kallan, two wildly intelligent and hilarious sisters who navigate life from opposite ends of every point of view. Narrated by their mother, Fightball: Dying of Suck is a book about children for readers of all ages. This first Fightball installment chronicles, as Maj describes it, “The time our family threw our lives up into the air and moved to Oregon.” Kallan, who is prone to falsehoods, hints that there are vampires and dragons and magic spells (there are none of these), because, she insists, “Marketing is all about bait and switch.”
A note to long-time readers of Pretty All True … some of the stories in Fightball appeared first (and in altered form) on Pretty All True, although they have since been taken down. I offer this simply by way of disclosure, as Fightball: Dying of Suck stands on its own and then some.
