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 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 rockI got to see Victoria Jamieson speak along with Ben Hatke at the Olympia Library a month or so ago She s very articulate personable addresses the uestions in your head about her work and happy to pose with adorable children

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 1030pm to 230am 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 readers If you want something badly enough you just have to work harder than everyone else to get it This story also taught readers to let the spotlight shine on someone else and it was absolutely a lesson my son needed 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 everyonexoxo Jasmine at wwwhowusefulitiswordpresscom for details I borrowed this book from the library and my opinions are honest
