Full of the best kind of punk-rock energy, narrator Almarie Guerra and a full cast take listeners on a rollicking ride around the roller derby track. This much loved graphic novel comes to life with bright voices and sound effects, including tumbles, bottles of hair dye, and lots of roller skates. Guerra’s slightly nasal voice suits tough yet insecure Astrid, the almost-middle-schooler who falls in love with derby and loses her best friend to a mean girl in one summer. Astrid grows as a skater and a friend while an enthusiastic cast helps listeners imagine the hard work and laughter needed to learn a new sport. Middle school listeners will love this story of learning to be “tougher, stronger, fearless,” and a good friend.
