A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER An unlikely political star tells the inspiring story of the two-decade journey that taught her how Washington really works—and really doesn't—in A Fighting Chance As a child in small-town Oklahoma, Elizabeth Warren yearned to go to college and then become an elementary school teacher—an ambitious goal, given her family's modest means. Early marriage and motherhood seemed to put even that dream out of reach, but fifteen years later she was a distinguished law professor with a deep understanding of why people go bankrupt. Then came the phone call that changed her life: could she come to Washington DC to help advise Congress on rewriting the bankruptcy laws? Thus began an impolite education into the bare-knuckled, often dysfunctional ways of Washington. She fought for better bankruptcy laws for ten years and lost. She tried to hold the federal government accountable during the financial crisis but became a target of the big banks. She came up with the idea for a new agency designed to protect consumers from predatory bankers and was denied the opportunity to run it. Finally, at age 62, she decided to run for elective office and won the most competitive—and watched—Senate race in the country. In this passionate, funny, rabble-rousing book, Warren shows why she has chosen to fight tooth and nail for the middle class—and why she has become a hero to all those who believe that America's government can and must do better for working families.

This is the story of a perfect quarter horse filly named Cricketts Rose; a calm natured gelding named Red; a disabled owner who couldn’t even have them in her name, Amanda; and a million-dollar race that Cricketts Rose knows she is meant to win. Red and Amanda never doubt Cricketts Rose, of course. Now, Cricketts Rose and Red would want you to know that the only thing that isn’t fiction in this novel is what good horses they really were. What happened to Cricketts Rose’s mother and a little of what it is like to be disabled, poor and trying to have something. There are good-looking cowboys, dancing and that kind of stuff in the story too. Cricketts Rose and Red reckon that the amateur writer who is writing their story would be me, Patti Witter, a.k.a. Amanda. The novel is set from September 16, 1983 to September 16, 1984, when Cricketts Rose turned two. You won’t believe what can happen in a year’s time. Did she win? Are you kidding? I wrote the story!
