The full-cast audiobook adaptation of the Newbery Award-winning graphic novel ROLLER GIRL is full of the best kind of punk rock energy. Astrid falls in love with roller derby and loses her best friend to a mean girl all in one summer. Bright voices and sound effects, including tumbles, bottles of hair dye, and lots of roller skates, create vibrant scenes to help kids imagine the hard work and laughter that goes into learning a new tough sport. Middle school listeners will love this story of learning to be “tougher, stronger, fearless,” and a good friend. Published by Listening Library.
