A Ring of Endless Light

Author: Madeline L'Engle
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

My all time favorite book is A Ring of Endless Light, by Madeline L'Engle. It's a moving diary about a young teenage girl finding herself, and connecting with her soul. As she overcomes the triumph of growing up and becoming a young adult, she faces many emotional challenges along the way. She has found her true soulmate, but at the same time has to care for her grandmother. She is very close to her family, and has a passionate love for her family. As she grows up, she emotionally connects with a very special friend, a dolphin. This intriguing creature helps ease the pain, and sets her mind free from the world. While reading this book I connected with her emotions and identified with the character's feelings. It's a story with everything going on in it, love, heartbreak, and self discovery, which I think all teenagers can relate to. I was indescribably moved by the emotions and feelings expressed, and touched by every word.
