Book Review: Roller Girl

Roller GirlToday I recommend Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson.

Roller Girl is a very inspiring graphic novel about a girl named Astrid who decides to join a roller derby camp in the summer after she saw a roller derby game.  She expects her best friend to also sign up, but she does not. Astrid deals with disappointment, friends, lies and getting a lot of bruises.

I loved this book. I have read it two and a half times, and I find it really inspiring. Around the time of when I read this book for the first time, I was scared to roller skate. But after a year, I had read this book again, and I went roller skating. I realized how accurate Roller Girl is. The book was right, when skating, you get a lot of bruises. I recommend this book to fans of the graphic novel Brave.
