This is an exiting new series about MMM that young readers will love ...By D. FowlerMeghan had always been into sports and the fact that her mom was a coach made it even better. Meghan, Tommy, and Latasha were on a lot of the same teams and were as close as sisters. The accident had changed all that, it had changed everything. Meghan was left without a mother and she only had a few things left: massive scarring, a fierce determination to fight, and a pill habit. Yeah she was into MMA, but the pills kept her pain at bay and thoughts of her mother fuzzy at best. When Mika jabbed at her she responded with a hard kick to Mikas right side. Where was the pain? Meghans life had changed and the only she looked forward to was her first real fight in the cage
when she was eighteen.Meghan waited for the times Tommy slipped a small bag of pills pills into her hoodie. Meghan was determined to improve her fighting skills and sparring with one of the guys like Hector would prove that she had what it took. Sparring continually with only girls wouldnt help her at all. She was tougher than that. Mr. Hodge wanted her to try working with Nong or Shawn, but no go. With the Soma in her system Meghan felt no pain and could go the distance. Her mothers voice echoed in her brain. Youre not just an athlete. Youre a champion. Yeah, and anyone with her in that cage was going to know it.Youre totally wired now ... youre a pill head. Latasha was no longer willing to hold her tongue. The one-time friendship was falling by the wayside the more enamored Meghan became with MMA and the Soma. The mixture was a lethal one and things would soon begin to fall apart. A Kimura would be enough to enable her to take down Josie. A sudden attack on Josies part swarmed Meghan and showered her with wild strikes, jabs, hooks, knees, and kicks. The champion wasnt looking all that hot when a strike got the blood to flowing. If Josie Roberts defeated her it wouldnt look good. Was she really a champion? Or was she simply going to hit that big match by being little more than a pill head?This is an exiting new series about MMM that young readers will love.
