  • Vivid and funny . . . The graphic format makes it fizz . . . And the contact sport of roller derby makes for a fascinating setting. Expressive, fearsomely physical and dominated by women, the author brilliantly conveys its appeal

  • A note-perfect middle-grade story of friendships lost and rebuilt, wrapped up in lively graphic novel form. Astrid is a peach of a hero, a likeable misfit desperate to be a great skater like her idol. Her discovery that it's not as easy as it looks will resonate with anyone who's ever dreamed of glory and fallen flat on their face; her response to disappointment will lift the heart
