Fight Like a Girl
From the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize-winning author of The Lost Ones, Sheena Kamal: Trisha is trying to break the cycle of violence in her family by channeling her impulses into kickboxing. Her father comes and goes from their house, every punch he lands on her mother carving itself indelibly into Trisha’s mind. But one night he wanders out drunk in front of Trisha’s car while she’s practicing driving and is killed, and her mother seems strangely at peace. Trisha doesn’t know what happened, but she’s afraid it’s going to happen again because her mom has a new man in her life and the pattern is repeating.
