Roller Girl – A Review by 7th Grader Grace S. December 14, 2016

Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson is about a 12 year old girl named Astrid who became interested in roller derby. She became very interested that she decided to join the Rose Buds camp in summer. She asked her best friend Nicole if she would like to do it, but Nicole wanted to do ballet camp instead. So when Astrid’s mom tells her that Nicole’s mom would be picking her and Nicole up after the camp was done for the day, Astrid would walked home by herself.

Nicole decided that she would rather spend time with Rachel, who was mean to Astrid when they were in kindergarten. Rachel was also going to ballet camp as well. This gave Nicole a friend to have at her ballet camp because she knew that Astrid would never do anything with ballet. So both Nicole and Rachel started to hang out together after the camp. Now Nicole was best friends with Rachel instead of Astrid.

All has never been good between Astrid and Rachel and she can’t believe that Nicole would hang out with Rachel because she even knew that she was mean. Astrid was very mad when she saw this and decided that she would get back at Rachel when she was with Nicole so that she can see how mean Rachel really is.

I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars because it is a really good read. If you like graphic novels, then this is a great book for you. Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down.
