What They Say
Sammy Jo may be strong, fast and tough, even in heels, but she gets into trouble when she fights some local thugs to save a rich boy named Gregory.
Now bad guy McCloud is after her – and he’s even more dangerous than her forbidden love for Gregory.
Fighter Girl was published in the United Kingdom under the title GYPSY GIRL.
She's also fascinated by a boy in the house next door to their field, Gregory, but obviously gypsies can't get together with non-gypsies, there's rules, or so there seems, so it's kinda like a forbidden love thing, like Romeo & Juliet without the death. It was an intriguing relationship, but I'd have preferred a few more scenes to flesh it out - they're only ever together when it's sneaky, or Gregory's getting beaten up, so it's hard for them to really chat, and it just needed a bit more fleshing-out to be perfect, because a love story is kind of hard to fit in, considering everything else happening to and around Sammy-Jo.
I really enjoyed Fighter Girl. Yes, I had my issues - see the link above for a detailed rant about why British books should be left as they are when published in America, but apart from that, this was a good read, and I am itching for a sequel! The ending was RIPE for a sequel to be published, so what is Kathryn James waiting for?!?! Give us more of the amazing Sammy-Jo, please!
