Roller Girl

Written by: Victoria Jamieson

First line: If you really want to know, it all began in fifth grade.

Why you should read this book: When Astrid falls in love with roller derby, she's excited that she and her best friend Nicole can spend the whole summer at roller derby camp, until Nicole informs her that she's going to ballet camp instead. Now Astrid's down one friend, and to make matters worse, she realizes she doesn't know how to skate. Over a strenuous, eye-opening summer, Astrid begins to figure out who she is without Nicole, and what it means to be a friend.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't get why anyone would want to go to roller derby camp or ballet camp.
