    I hear that bullet hole on the cover is where CHAMPION was shot during production. Penguin was going to have to reprint, but then the book healed itself… like a Terminator.


    CONGRATS MARIE!!!!!!!!!!! So, so excited/proud/thrilled for you. I cannot wait to have this bad boy on my bookshelf and, of course, discover the final chapter in Day and June’s story. <333

    CHAMPION once arm-wrestled Chuck Norris. It won by forfeit. Chuck Norris called off the match to find out what happened to Day and June.
