About the Author:

Bobbie Pryon is a part-time librarian in the Salt Lake County Library system and holds an MLS. She has been a library director, a school librarian and a bookstore manager. She lives in Park City, UT, and The Ring is her first young adult novel.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8–10—Missing the dead mother she barely remembers and feeling that she's a disappointment to her father, Mardie, 15, has embarked on a path of self-destruction. She is arrested after getting drunk at a party, is letting her grades slip, and is finally busted for shoplifting. Her salvation is a girls' boxing club that she joins on a whim, but it quickly begins to give focus and purpose to her life. As she gains confidence in her abilities, Mardie learns to accept herself and others. First-time novelist Pyron gets many of the details of high school life right, and Mardie's smart, sassy narration rings true. There may be a few too many story lines what with a boyfriend who's pressuring Mardie for sex, a gay brother whom she outs to their family, a friend who thinks she's pregnant, another friend whose father is deployed to Iraq, a bully who wants to beat her up, and an inspiring disabled child whom Mardie works with at the center where she's doing community service. On balance, though, this solid effort may well attract an enthusiastic, if not overly large, audience.—Richard Luzer, Fair Haven Union High School, VT
