Title: The Fight for Us
Author: Elizabeth Finn

When Isaiah moves his teenage daughter Natalie to a new town, there is little doubt he’s running away from the past. But what should have been a fresh start for them ends up fraught with pain and heartache when Natalie becomes the victim of intense bullying at her new school. 

 When Joss is called to a meeting with the high school principal to discuss her daughter Harper’s involvement in the bullying of a new student, she’s shocked to say the least. Her daughter can’t possibly be that child. 

 It’s a rocky start for Joss and Isaiah as they try to set their daughters on the right path. But there is more to Joss’s and Isaiah’s connection than just two teenage girls. Joss’s and Isaiah’s attraction to one another is undeniable, regardless of their fractious start. But his soul is broken, and as much as he’s drawn to her, he’s equally terrified of what that means. 

 Is Isaiah strong enough to let her get close to him? 

 Life sometimes forces you to make those choices whether you’re ready to or not. And when Joss’s life is turned upside down, Isaiah has to decide if he’s ready to leave his past behind and live again, or if he’s going to watch what he’s come to care so much for slip away. Isaiah’s fight is profound. Joss’s is too. And their strength to withstand it all is brutally tested. 

 Sometimes the willingness to fight for another is all a person has left to give. And sometimes the fight is the most important gift of all.

The Fight For Us begins when Joss is called to the school because her daughter is in trouble. She never would have thought her daughter would act like she did and actually let another girl get hurt but that is what happens. She meets the girls father, Isaiah, who seems to actually hate her, but these two actually start to form some sort of relationship. But they both have a past that neither is sure they can get through. However, when they can't seem to stay away from each other, and they realize that they may actually need each other they both of figure out how to fight for each other or risk losing the only family they could have left.. 

 This book was not at all what I was expecting. At first I really didn't Joss, because she just came off as a mom who worked to hard and didn't know her child. But learning her story I felt majorly bad for her, and I really started to like her after that. And I also felt bad for Isaiah, but these two seemed to fit perfectly together. I also loved the how the author did the whole "his fight, her fight, their fight" type of thing. It was really awesome to see it split like that and then each of their struggles, and then their struggles together. It was also really interesting to get to see Joss and Isaiah's daughters getting along, and being close. They needed each other as well, and it was really neat to watch their relationship come together as well. Over all I really liked this book, and thought it was good with great characters, and an interesting plot line.
