Overview

All her life, Jordi Hemphill was told that she needed to change to fit in and be accepted. She talked too much, laughed too loud, and most definitely, indisputably and inexcusably weighed too much. In fact, she wore her size-20+ clothes without so much as an apology. She didn't care to fit in. She didn't want to be beautiful. Instead, she wanted to wear her hair in funky colors, she itched for tattoos and piercings, and dreamed of a life much bigger than working at the local Burger Palace for minimum wage. She had been born with the voice of a superstar, and something inside her told her it was OK to dream big, even if she had to do it in secret.

On her eighteenth birthday, she takes every last cent she has and buys a one-way ticket for Los Angeles. She is sure her talent will get her noticed by those more open-minded to see it. Then and only then will she show all the naysayers in her hometown that she was a somebody no matter what they thought.

Unfortunately Los Angeles isn't any more welcoming. Jordi didn't fit into their pop machine no matter how well she sang. Other pop princess had the "full package," whereas Jordi still needed to change if she wanted her dreams to come true. It takes a plus-size TV producer to take a chance on her, casting her for a reality talent show called "Fierce," which put attitude and talent far above the traditional pop star image.

Thanks to Giovanni Carnevale, the lead singer of "Dreaming in Blue" and "Fierce's" rock star judge, Jordi gets a chance to fight for her place on a national stage.

But will America embrace this alternative diva? Or will they too expect her to conform in order to be accepted... to be loved? Despite the acceptance of new friends and supporters, old ghosts continue to haunt Jordi on her new journey. It will take handsome fellow contestant, Jace Riga, to finally help expose and exorcise the demons that drive her self-destruction.

"Fierce" continues the story introduced in the Ginger Voight novel, "Mogul," where Jordi joins a hodge-podge of other contestants to battle for the championship that dares every single hopeful to live large, to be FIERCE.

Ginger Voight, the author of the best-selling "Groupie" series, brings fame once again to the forefront with her new adult story, "Fierce." The characters you grew to love in the "Groupie" trilogy and "Love Plus One" are back to help the incomparable Jordi Hemphill carve a place for her as a pop princess despite the odds in this coming-of-age Rubenesque romance.

Best Spin Off Series Book EVER! ~Team Jace all the way! FIERCE IS FIERCE! Lord Ginger can write a book like no other. Man I was so engrossed by Fierce that I tuned out everyone and everything. I needed my time and by that I wanted to be able to sit and enjoy what Ginger wrote. Boy oh boy what a treat I received because Fierce is a story about a girl who is not your average girl. No she is a fire cracker and she is setting out to let her town know she has what it takes to be a star. Lord I love Jordi. She is hilarious because she is heavy set and dies her hair different colors. She wants tattoos and piercings and just wants to live her own life. She does not want to change like everyone tells her she needs to. She wants more out of her life and she can have it because lord knows when she opens her mouth and sings she blows people out the water with her voice. So she decides when she turns 18 years old she will take off and never look back. On Jordi's 18th birthday she does just that. She takes all her money she has saved and leaves for Los Angeles. When she gets to Los Angeles she is discouraged and disappointed to see that things have not changed. Yes it is a different place but people look at the outside and the inside. You need to have a face to sell in order to get noticed. But the Jordi hears from a friend about as show Fierce. The director for fierce is looking for someone who has talent. No matter what they look like. So Jordi tries out and gets a spot on the show. But is everything cracked up to be what it really is? Or are things still the same? Jordi meets Jace on the show and they get close but Jordi thinks Jace does not like her because she is not a skinny minny but Jace really does care about her and he intends to show her just how much he cares for her.  Will that be enough for Jordi? Because Eddie oh yeah you have to read about my friend here Eddie is back in the picture acting like the greatest...... ever and he wants everyone to know she belongs to him. Lord what a tool! This is such a must read book I need it in print so I can read it over and over again! Thank You Ginger for this spin off series!
