By now, many know Olympic Gold Medalist Aly Raisman’s story. At the very least, her 10,000 watt smile, and her unwavering strength as an outspoken survivor of Dr. Larry Nasser’s abuse, are recognized the world over. Fierce is Raisman’s personal journey, as an athlete and young woman coming of age. Fierce, is a perfect title.

Narrator Natalie Roy Camargo reads Raisman’s motivational memoir well. She’s credible as the voice of a determined spunky young woman who, despite her own insecurities, perseveres through disappointment, and heartbreak to find success in her chosen sport and in life. The passages about Raisman’s sexual assault are handled with sensitivity.
