S-One, , Smith, Protec. She's a bit of a brat but she's also tough. She knows how to do the right thing, sometimes she follows through and sometimes she doesn't.

It's hard to grow up and her character illustrates this point so well. The thing I liked best, though, is this isn't a Becomes The Hero story.

She doesn't become a champion Jr. She works really hard, she trains hard, she tries hard and she's just regular.

Not amazing. Middle of the line. She also has fun. It is wonderful to see that just because you want it, just because you work your butt off for it, just because you think you deserve it You'll get a lot of other stuff along the way, though - Astrid does reap rewards - and hopefully you'll learn to appreciate the journey more than the goal.

I might need to get this for my newlyyear-old niece. View all 16 comments. This book was recommended to me by a fellow bookstagrammer.

I gave it to my 8 years old and he loved it so much that he read it 3 times! It's no wonder because I absolutely loved this book!

I read it in one sitting from pm to am! The story was on roller derby and I knew nothing about it so it was fascinating to learn.

Astrid's skating skills was terrible and every time she fell, it reminded me of how I fell when I first learned to skate.

I loved the message this book was teaching young This book was recommended to me by a fellow bookstagrammer.

I loved the message this book was teaching young readers: "If you want something badly enough, you just have to work harder than everyone else to get it.

This book followed Astrid, 12, as she and her best friend Nicole went to see Roller Derby with Astrid's mom.

Astrid became obsessed with being a Roller Girl. The next day, she and Nicole went skating, except, Astrid didn't know how to skate.

That wasn't the bad news because Nicole had other plans for her summer camp and it's not Roller Derby.

Astrid was left on her own to do something she's not good at. Roller Girl was so much fun to read!

The humor was contagious and I couldn't help but to laugh out loud. I like the friendship portion of this book as well. I loved the mother daughter relationship.

I liked how Astrid's mom took her some places like the museum and as much as Astrid hated those places, she also armed with knowledge when she needed it.

Astrid's true feelings on shopping and dresses was funny. I loved the illustrations. A definitely must read book, I highly recommended this story to everyone!

This was amazing. I want to go to a real Roller Derby event. I enjoyed the movie that came out a few years ago. This is a story about Astrid at age 12 learning to be a tough and cool Roller Girl.

She joins a summer camp to learn to skate, bump, fall, and jam. She has to be tough and she gains and loses friends in the process. Going into junior high is not for the faint of heart.

Astrid's world is being turned upside down. Luckily, her mother is amazing and Roller-rific. Luckily, her mother is amazing and I love her.

She is so supportive. I also like her friend who is into musical theatre. That's my kind of people.

I would love a sequel to this book. I want more. It was a great story and great for kids and it was nominated for a Newberry as a graphic novel.

That doesn't happen often. I would read this again. Roll on Roller Girl. Dec 31, Julie rated it it was amazing Shelves: coming-of-age , graphic.

Holy crap, I'm so excited that I get to be a kids librarian in a time when the market is nurturing and embracing literature like this.

Jamieson has a soft spot for the everysoul - she doesn't tell stories just about the stars of the world.

Here, she uses her background playing roller derby to tell a coming of age story about a tween. It's subtly set in PDX, which is a nice perk.

I really liked that Jamieson introduced derby as one activity in a parade of cultural experiences - one that catches Holy crap, I'm so excited that I get to be a kids librarian in a time when the market is nurturing and embracing literature like this.

I really liked that Jamieson introduced derby as one activity in a parade of cultural experiences - one that catches the character's eye in a truly individual way.

One of the other activities could have captured her just as easily. The plot also addresses interpersonal relationships, persevering through difficulty, and how to know when to let a friendship go.

Jamieson's work on the craft of this book is exemplary - perfect for readers of Raina Telgemeier and El Deafo and Jimmy Gownley 's stuff.

The storytelling is very easy to follow, and the full color illustrations rock. I got to see Victoria Jamieson speak along with Ben Hatke!

She's very articulate, personable, addresses the questions in your head about her work, and happy to pose with adorable children.

Perplexing, exhilarating, colorful, fast and slow, painful and funny: Roller derby is such an apt metaphor for adolescence, and this wonderful graphic novel magnificently and enjoyably illuminates how one might learn to navigate the mysterious worlds of both derby and adolescence.

It's the summer before junior high, and Astrid, the daughter of a hardworking, worried single parent, finds herself thrust into an identity crisis when longtime and rather traditional best friend Nicole grows increasingly consumed with ballet, boys, and clothes while the more iconoclastic Astrid is seduced by the feisty whistling whirlwind of the Rose City Rollers - even though she can't even really skate yet.

On her own for the first time since elementary school, Astrid tackles derby camp head-on and learns about friendship, identity, teamwork, determination, and how to jam, block, and "fall small" in the face of challenges.

Highly recommended to all! View all 9 comments. Aug 22, Vanessa rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , goodreads-rec , feministing , ya , graphic-fiction-and-non.

I would like to begin with my tl;dr impressions of this book and they go like this: YES! With that out of the way--I've loved roller derby for years.

This sport is no joke. And so I have stuck to admiring it from the bleachers. I had thought this would just be a cute, fun read. And it definitely is, but it's more.

Our protagonist, Astrid, discovers herself, friendship, what being a true friend means, and the right way to dye your hair blue in roller derby.

But she also gets important lessons in how some childhood friendships don't last forever and what to do when your former bff becomes chummy with a venomous hate pixie and starts ghosting you.

It was such a glorious, thoughtful, empowering, funny story, I really just want to climb inside of this book and live there.

And the last book I said that about was my favorite book of all time, Cannery Row. High praise.

This was written and illustrated by Victoria Jamieson, a real-live roller girl who borrowed her real team name and logo as well as the names of some of her teammates.

And for her work, she won a Newbery honor. I so want to hang out with Astrid and Zoey now. Sure, they are fictional and 12 and I'm almost 50 but cmon!

Sure, Astrid is enthusiastic but bad at derby at the start, and she works really really hard. And at the end, she's And that's ok. She's just getting started, after all, and there's a lot of room for her to grow.

And she can love something without being fantastic at it right away. The one thing this book makes very clear about derby is that it's hard, there's a lot of work involved, it's very physically demanding, and it's deeply rewarding.

There are far worse ways to look at a sport. But this is not, of course, just about derby. It's about friendship, about growing away from old friends and towards new ones.

Astrid's best friend isn't interested in roller derby. She wants to go to ballet camp. And it's part of Astrid's journey in this book to realize that she and Nicole don't need to be attached at the hip.

They can be different people. Maybe they won't be friends the way they once were, but that doesn't mean they have to be enemies, either.

I must talk about Astrid's new friend, Zoey, because I love her. She's sweet and friendly and obviously fun to be around, of course. But that isn't all, my friends.

This awesome girl is in love with Hugh Jackman. Because of Wolverine? Of course not! She loves him for his work in musicals!

She is, in fact, a huge musical fan. And her favorite? Let me put it this way: her derby name is Slay Miserables, and her number is presumably the 01 would not have fit.

Seriously, she's basically me at her age, but more outgoing and athletic. I love her. I want a sequel book starring her as she balances roller derby and theater, with even more musical references.

I absolutely loved this book. I tell you, there's been some seriously amazing middle grade graphic novels released over the last few years, and this one is right up there with fantastic books like El Deafo , Smile , Zita the Spacegirl , and How Mirka Got Her Sword.

Oh, I loved Roller Girl. I came across it during a shopping trip at Gosh! Roller Girl is the heartwarming tale of friendship and roller derby over one summer, beautifully written and illustrated by Victoria Jamieson.

It perfectly captures what it's like to be growing up when you're not a child, but not quite a teenager.

Astrid is years-old and does everything with her best friend Nicole — until Astrid signs up for roller derby and Nicole starts making new friends at ballet.

I wish there were more contemporary graphic novels because it's a wonderful, underrated format for them.

Not only do we get a fantastic story, but are able to experience visually the pain, frustration and heartbreak of real life.

I love coming-of-age stories and in Roller Girl , we get everything from realistic confrontations with parents to what it feels like to be the worst at something you so desperately want to conquer.

Trigger for indirect body shaming, mention of a dead animal, bullying, and injury. Slightly dramatic and enthusiastic, Astrid fell in love with roller derby.

Sometimes excited, sometimes grumpy, her dreams carried her as she made mistakes. But wether in the rink, her friendships, or life, she bravely learned from them.

I adored how she just was a genuine kid. Funny, lost, and determined to get back up after she fell, Astrid was someone we can all relate to.

If you want a story filled with rolemodels, look no further than Roller Girl. Each one of these ladies impressed me for different reasons.

The parent we all want, Astrid's mother encouraged her daughter in a practical, gentle way. One soft and sweet, one musically friendly, Astrid friends were both well crafted souls that had a lot to teach her.

Even though they wanted different things, and that created some turmoil, each of the young girls friendships were fantastic.

I desperately hope we get companion graphic novels about each of them. Strong, bold, and not afraid, the roller deribists were unique heroes.

I couldn't have loved this cast more. As you roll through these pages, be prepared to jam through reality, but bump into sheer awesomeness!

Bright, colorful illustrations helped bring Astrid's coming of age story, brimming with sports and female empowerment, to life.

A fun introduction to roller derby, Roller Girl hits you with the rough, but wetherable patches of friendship, finding your identity, and standing up for yourself.

Change slams into you, but Victoria Jamieson's graphic novel is all about learing to show life your warface. This is perfect for tweens, roller queens, and everyone in between!

You won't regret letting Roller Girl rollover your heart. Roller Girl wasn't the first graphic novel to win a Newbery Honor—that was Cece Bell's El Deafo in —but it duplicated the feat only a year later.

Victoria Jamieson had illustrated for other authors and done a few picture books of her own, but Roller Girl put her squarely on the map in children's literature.

She had become one of the best at appealing to reluctant readers with her spunk and colorful sense of style.

Astrid Vasquez and Nicole have been friends since first grade, when a girl na Roller Girl wasn't the first graphic novel to win a Newbery Honor—that was Cece Bell's El Deafo in —but it duplicated the feat only a year later.

Astrid Vasquez and Nicole have been friends since first grade, when a girl named Rachel convinced Astrid she would die of rabies after touching a dead squirrel.

Nicole dispelled Astrid's fear with her calm understanding of medical facts, and ever after the two were best friends. Astrid's mother often takes them out for Evenings of Cultural Enlightenment, local artistic experiences that Astrid and Nicole find less than stimulating, but they're in for a surprise one evening when Ms.

Vasquez takes them to a women's roller derby competition. Astrid, now in fifth grade, is mesmerized by the drama and athleticism of the Rose City Rollers, Portland's hometown team that dominates the evening's bout behind the efforts of their star jammer, Rainbow Bite.

A thrilling new world opens up for Astrid, but will her mother let her join a roller derby group?

This is the summer that Astrid and Nicole's friendship changes. The "Rosebuds" camp runs for a month this summer, and Astrid fantasizes about someday playing alongside Rainbow Bite on the professional circuit.

The trouble is, Nicole doesn't want to go; she plans to spend the summer honing her ballet skills to dance en pointe, physically strenuous as it is.

She's becoming friendly with Rachel, who still torments Astrid all these years after the dead squirrel incident.

Why does Nicole want to make friends with a mean snob like that? Astrid doubts her mother will let her attend Junior Roller Derby Camp alone, so she pretends Nicole's mother will be driving them home.

An hour walk home every day won't be fun, but it's worth it to join the Rosebuds Derby skating is way harder than Astrid imagined.

Most of the girls at camp are bigger, tougher, seasoned skaters, and Astrid can barely stay on her feet. How does Rainbow Bite make it look as easy as walking?

Astrid also lacks a clever roller derby nickname, to let opponents know you mean business before you step on the track. At least there's one girl her age at camp, Zoey.

She's not a smooth skater either, so Astrid has company as a novice. Camp is a sustained physical ordeal as Astrid falls down again and again, left behind by other campers who are perfecting their skills.

Can Astrid ever catch up to them? Bruised and discouraged, she feels like quitting, but the lead instructor—a pro known as Heidi Go Seek—challenges her to resist taking the easy way out.

Astrid's long walk home each day under the scorching sun is brutal, but as she gets her feet under her, she's able to skate most of the way.

She definitely needs the extra practice. Though Astrid's confidence as a skater grows at a slow rate, she and Zoey encourage each other.

They know Rainbow Bite couldn't have attained the pinnacle of her profession, aggressively checking skaters all over the track, by yielding to adversity.

Astrid has a lot to focus on, but it still bothers her knowing that Nicole and Rachel are becoming best friends, united by a mutual love of ballet.

Losing Nicole is like losing part of herself; Astrid has treasured their relationship since the day they met after Astrid touched the dead squirrel.

It feels as though Rachel has stolen Nicole, and knowing Rachel, she probably did it out of spite. Astrid can't prevent Nicole from drifting away, but she redoubles her commitment to roller derby as camp speeds toward its conclusion and the Rosebuds prepare for their first real bout, live at halftime of a Rose City Rollers event.

Early on in camp, Astrid started communicating anonymously with Rainbow Bite by stuffing notes into the pro skater's locker, and she's ecstatic about meeting her hero in person.

But will Astrid have a respectable showing at the bout, or slip and fall all over the track and make a fool of herself?

Is she even capable of qualifying to compete, or will Heidi Go Seek have her sit this one out until she's a better skater?

Zoey is just as nervous as Astrid; Heidi assigned her a key role in the bout, and Zoey doubts she can deliver for her team. Astrid wants to be happy for her new friend, who's helped her develop some semblance of the confident, edgy attitude necessary to thrive at roller derby, but she wanted the role that Heidi gave Zoey.

Is Astrid about to lose another friend because she's too self-absorbed to let her own feelings take a temporary backseat?

Can she make peace with the divergent paths that she and Nicole are taking, and put her best foot forward to discover who she is without her former friend?

A story with just the right emotional tension, Roller Girl is both playful and thoughtful. Anyone who has embraced a challenging pastime the way Astrid has with roller derby will identify with the lessons she learns from her sport.

You can't afford to feel sorry for yourself because a skater knocks you on your butt, and you shouldn't expect success without heavy investment of blood, sweat, and tears.

You respond to getting hit hard by putting on your "warface" and issuing a return hit of your own, sending the message you won't be intimidated.

A sport like roller derby is a good way to channel frustration; you use negative emotions as fuel to be a better athlete. Violence isn't appropriate in mainstream society, but Astrid is encouraged to lay big hits on people at the roller derby track, and it's a satisfying catharsis.

But the most meaningful parts of Roller Girl are the places where we feel Astrid's pain as she recognizes she's losing Nicole.

The day Nicole "rescued" her from rabies in first grade still means so much to her, as we plainly see when she reflects on it.

Friendships change as the people in them do, but it's no easier to grow apart from a beloved friend than it is to pass through adolescence, as Astrid will soon.

At least she'll have roller derby to reinforce habits of self-discipline and determination. She'll need that to grow into the person she's capable of being.

It's not a high-energy story, but Roller Girl has a lot to like. A roller derby skater herself, Victoria Jamieson understands the life lessons her sport offers.

All athletics have them to some degree, but I appreciate the wisdom in these pages distilled from a hard-contact sport like roller derby. If you want a fresh take on the traditional coming-of-age tale, try the book that launched Victoria Jamieson to stardom.
