About the Author

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.

Reviews

"...an accessible memoir, of an inspirational bent...with some vital, tender discussion of her experience of sexual assault included as well. It's a book of (appropriately) fierce advocacy."
--Entertainment Weekly
"...lively and straightforward...Raisman's inspiring and enlightening story belongs in every teen biography collection."--SLJ
A New York Times Bestseller
An Entertainment Weekly Best YA book of 2017
"Aly Raisman is fierce in every sense of the word. Her story is one of persistence, hardship, triumph and leadership and Fierce is both inspiring and illuminating."--Billie Jean King, Founder, Women's Sports Foundation
"Aly's success as a gymnast is no doubt incredible. But Fierce gives an intimate look into her journey not just as an athlete, but as an impressive and powerful young woman. She's a role model to our daughters, an incredible friend, and the embodiment of bravery and girl power!"--Nick Swisher and JoAnna Garcia Swisher
"An appealing, readable memoir for more than just future gymnasts."--Kirkus Reviews
