I started reading this independent novel for my English class. This novel is called The Ring. The author is Bobbie Pyron. The cover to the book is what drew my attention to the book. That reason is because I have never seen a girl in boxing gloves on a cover of a book before. What makes this book different from many others is that it is relatable to young females. I think that young girls that have a hard time at school and in their homes should read this to have them see that they can overcome their problems. The main character is Mardie Wold. She is a 15 year old girl who is trying to meet up to her father's expectations. She goes through mood swings all the time but she takes it all out when she boxes. Their is no set setting in this book. The setting moves around a lot. It goes from her home to her school, and then to the ring. Some good events that happened in the book are very shocking. Mardie finds out a surprising secret about her brother. I don't want to spoile anymore surprises about this novel. Some expert writing that Pyron uses in this book is, Close-Echo effect and stricking verbs. When she uses those kinds of techniques, she tries to make certain things in the book stand out. This book is very engaging and it keeps you on your toes. You never know what Mardie Wolf is going to do.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Ring is a life affirming novel shown through the struggle of friendship, values and the inner spirit. I'm glad I bought a copy of The Ring for my 17 year old God-daughter who faces the opportunity of being an Olympic soccer player.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
