Recommended for: Grades 4-7

“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.” (Amazon.com)
If you’re a fan of Raina Telgemeier, you’ll love Roller Girl. I loved every page! Astrid is a fun and realistic character, and learning about roller derby was an added bonus.
