Praise

Praise for My Corner of the Ring:

Jess is a great example to other young athletes. Readers will be impressed by her drive to succeed as a female boxer in this inspiring memoir.” Booklist

This memoir will undoubtedly inspire and motivate teens to set goals and challenge themselves. An invaluable addition to public and school library biography collections.” School Library Journal

Jess is a smart, strong Latinx girl with a fierce determination, and readers will root through her wins and losses, ups and downs, all the way to the 2018 Junior Olympics… young girls will be able to relate to Jess and will be inspired by her fighting spirit. Her loving relationship with her father and the support of her coach give an emotional weight to the story. Readers will come away believing nothing is more important than knowing you have people in your corner.” Kirkus Reviews

“This autobiographical account of [Jesselyn’s] journey to date is matter-of-fact yet absorbing as she negotiates the physical and mental challenges of boxing and also the cultural challenges of being a girl in a sport with very few women. . . Reluctant readers will especially appreciate the combination of compelling subject and accessible prose…and maybe intrigued enough to strap on a pair of gloves themselves.” The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
