Loved by our collective!

An anthem for queer survival in a world so desperate to deny it, Stay and Fight is a celebration of what it means to be alive, flawed, and human. With a rotating cast of first-person narrators, Madeline Ffitch writes distinct voices that create a detailed snapshot of living off the land and working to make ends meet in rural small-town Appalachia. Honest, raw, quirky, harsh, stubborn, fun loving, heartbreaking, and gut-wrenching, I absolutely fell in love with the authenticity of these characters and their struggle to understand themselves, their commitment to one another, and what it looks like to build home together.
