Graphic Novel of the Month Club!
This month we're reading:
Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson
Every month we select a new title that you'll love! We'll have a teaser during the month, and then we'll meet at the end of the month to take a closer look. This month we’ll be reading “Roller Girl,” by Victoria Jamieson. This is recommended for fans of Raina Telgemeier’s “Smile,” and is a fun 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.
Books are selected for readers age 8-18, and may contain some PG violence or language. Books will be on the YA Balcony as soon as they're available!
