You are a small thing, and you must learn to fight.

Swiv has taken this advice too literally. Now she’s suspended from school, in the care of her foul-mouthed, hilarious grandmother.

Mom is busy being pregnant, so Grandma gives Swiv a very different education. Swiv learns maths with Amish jigsaws and How to Dig a Winter Grave. Grandma’s methods may be unorthodox, but she has faced the worst of life with a wild, independent spirit and this is what she hopes to pass on.

Time is running short. Grandma’s health is failing and the baby is on the way – can Grandma inspire this fire in Swiv, and ensure it never goes out?

Poignant, hilarious and deeply moving, Fight Night is a girl's love letter to the women raising her and a tribute to one family's fighting spirit.

‘A love letter to our brave and brilliant matriarchs.’ Glamour
