*I was given a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for a review and participation in the My Corner of the Ring blog tour.
Why hello there! My name is Kendra, I’m That Reader Girl, and today I’m coming at you with a mood board surrounding the new memoir, My Corner of the Ring by Jesselyn Silva.
My Corner of the Ring Synopsis
My Corner of the Ring follows twelve-year-old Jesselyn Silva on her journey to the top of her sport — women’s boxing. Through hours of tireless training in the gym, to struggling to find opponents, Jesselyn Silva is a true inspiration. She starts out boxing in her father’s gym to pass the time while her father works out, but soon, that stage of boredom is overcome by a love to punch, kick, and attack. The desire to continue on in her sport is strong, and Jesselyn’s journey begins. From the bottom of the ranks, to dreaming of the 2024 Olympics, Jesselyn’s story leaves you feeling empowered and ready to rise up and go after what you want.
The Mood Board
(Quick disclaimer: I wasn’t 100% sure what I was getting myself into, but I think this represents the book really well, following themes such as determination, overcoming, and enjoying what you do.)
I absolutely loved My Corner of the Ring! Go check it out, and go check out Jesselyn on Instagram!
After all this, everyone, have a lovely day.
Remember, you are beautifully and wonderfully made.
