Astrid doesn’t have a nickname other than ‘Nicole’s best friend’; whatever Astrid does, Nicole does too. So when Astrid becomes enraptured by the Rose City Rollers and enrols in roller derby camp, she is outraged by Nicole’s rejection- that she should prefer to attend dance camp with Astrid’s nemesis…. Rachel.
‘Roller Girl‘ is a riveting read. It rips along like a jammer, expanding on Astrid’s discoveries about roller derby, friendship, mothers, facing problems and overcoming obstacles.
This super graphic novel deserves its high ranking in US sales and reviews. The pacy dynamic storytelling should win ‘Roller Girl‘ more British fans than the Rose City Rollers have in Oregon.
