I liked reading about roller derby. I didn't know what roller derby was and now I am thinking I might even want to try it myself. I could understand Astrid when she and Nicole had problems. She is upset that Nicole chose Rachel over her. If you liked "Smile and Sisters" you will like this book as well. It is a graphic novel about a character going through hard times. Readers should know that there is a bit of bullying. Nicole teases Astrid about her name. There are a lot of middle school friendship problems.
