For fans of Raina Telgemeier’s Smile, a heartwarming graphic novel about friendship and surviving junior high through the power of roller derby.

Twelve-year-old Astrid has always done everything with her best friend Nicole. So when Astrid signs up for roller derby camp, she assumes Nicole will too. But Nicole signs up for dance camp with a new friend instead, and so begins the toughest summer of Astrid's life. There are bumps and bruises as Astrid learns who she is without Nicole...and what it takes to be a strong, tough roller girl.

A book review by Emma C. Ovalle

                                                           This book has fun, friendship, and it shows how important thinking of others is. It talks about a girl, Astrid, who likes roller derby and how she gets better every day.  Her best friend does not join her in roller derby and she is hurt. Astrid learns new things over the summer before she goes to 6th grade and how to be a better friend.

This book is a graphic novel and a Newbery Honor book.  This book is also special to me because I bought it New York City at Barnes and Noble when I went to visit my Uncle Rene.

Thanks for reading!
