Ninety – Nine Fire Hoops by Allison Hong Merrill (Book Review #1062)


Ninety – Nine fire hoops is a memoir and tells the story of a nineteen-year-old Taiwanese Mormon girl, Allison Hong. She meets an American Mormon missionary, Cameron Chastain and falls in love. They elope to Texas, and at the age of twenty-two, she believes she has it all. However, things don’t pan out the way she imagined, and a sudden hit makes her realize that she must be the confident woman in command.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The memoir explains how Allison breaks the Chinese cultural expectation for women’s submission to be for men. The author is honest about her experience, and it was straightforward to understand her. There are religious matters discussed, but it does not dominate the storyline.

The book is so inspirational and makes you just love how powerful and triumphant Allison is. I really liked the book cover and thought it certainly reflected the content inside.

I recommend this book to those who like to read memoirs.
