Praise for Fierce as the Wind

"A powerful coming-of-age story full of grit." --Kirkus Reviews

"Redd hones each facet to near perfection." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Miho and her friends navigate privilege, identity, and institutional inequality. These are complex topics, but the main focus is the characters' goal of loving and supporting a friend." --SLJ

"I cheered with Miho with every thrilling mile through the streets and surf of Oahu. What a glorious ride!" --Sarah Deming, author of Gravity

"Tara Wilson Redd's quick writing style and rich imagery make for an immersive literary getaway that kept me racing through the pages. Strong-willed Miho takes us on an intimate ride around her island hometown as she navigates the flotsam of a broken heart, triathalon training, and adolescence itself." --Josh Sundquist, author of We Should Hang Out Sometime

"Lessons found in sport: life doesn't follow a plan, success is achieved through team, a new beginning is often painful. Miho discovers, as I did, that hard work and innovation pave the path to victory in both life and athletics." --Gwen Jorgensen, 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist, 2014 and 2015 World Champion triathlete
