Published on: 14 July 2017
Rush headfirst into Roller Girl, the tale of the totally firece Astrid and her friendships, family life and epic roller derby sprints. Just check out the pictures...
Author-illustrator Victoria Jamieson has just made an incredibly cool graphic novel, all about the world of roller derby through the eyes of 12-year-old Astrid.
Her illustrations really do a great job of capturing the energy and fun of the sport - and it's no surprise to hear that Victoria is actually a “roller girl” in real life, who goes by the name of Winnie the Pow!
