Penguin, 2015年3月10日 - 240 頁
The Newbery Honor Award Winner and New York Times bestseller Roller Girl is a heartwarming graphic novel about friendship and surviving junior high through the power of roller derby—perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier's Smile

For most of her twelve years, Astrid has done everything with her best friend Nicole. But after Astrid falls in love with roller derby and signs up for derby camp, Nicole decides to go to dance camp instead. And so begins the most difficult summer of Astrid's life as she struggles to keep up with the older girls at camp, hang on to the friend she feels slipping away, and cautiously embark on a new friendship. As the end of summer nears and her first roller derby bout (and junior high!) draws closer, Astrid realizes that maybe she is strong enough to handle the bout, a lost friendship, and middle school… in short, strong enough to be a roller girl.

In this graphic novel debut that earned a Newbery Honor and five starred reviews, real-life derby girl Victoria Jamieson has created an inspiring coming-of-age story about friendship, perseverance, and girl power!

A strong pick for kids heading into middle school -- all about derby, of course, but also all about navigating new interests and friendship implosions and figuring out how to be yourself. Great story, great images! 閱讀評論全文

This was fantastic. I have always been fascinated with roller derby girls and learned much more about the sport with this novel. I want to hand this to every young girl who thinks they have to fit in a certain box. I loved this book! 閱讀評論全文
