Publisher's Summary

The Newbery Honor Award Winner and New York Times best seller Roller Girl is a heartwarming tale about friendship and surviving junior high through the power of roller derby - perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier's Smile!

For most of her 12 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 - now adapted for audio - 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!

Performed by Almarie Guerra, with Jesse Bernstein, Ron Butler, Abigail Caro, Robbie Daymond, Giordan Diaz, Em Eldridge, Christopher Gebauer, Kim Mai Guest, Kirby Heyborne, Hillary Huber, Rachel Jacobs, Jorjeana Marie, Kathleen McInerney, Alex McKenna, Cassandra Morris, P.

Blue hair and roller skates!

My daughter and I had already enjoyed the paperback version and were excited to see Victoria Jamieson's Roller Girl brought into audio format. This is a great tool to use when discussing how friendships change as kids grow...none too sappy and I mean, ROLLER DERBY!!!
