    1. Caroline for bigbooklittlebookCopy provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review.I was browsing for titles when the cover for Roller Girls Falling Hard caught my eye While it s bright pink cover and kookie styling, makes it hard to miss, what really grabbed my attention was the subject matter a female dominated, full contact, team sport, populated by awesome kick arse women on retro quad skates like our protagonist, this Brit was ignorant, and fascinated.Annie has had some experience at [...]

    5. Great girly teen read with a sporty story line with undertones of romance but no insta love YES PlotThe plot was progressive and made a great coming of age story for younger readers experiencing the YA genre for the first time There is no elicit content yet it is still an enjoyable read for an older or experienced reader The progression of the plot was good and very subtle There are romantic undertones but it is not a poignant and overwhelming element of the novel which is something that I find [...]

    19. Well derby girl before reading this book I never know this term before, and I wish that I would was familiar with it in my time this is why that paragraphs who describe the game detail made me a little strange and of course there were a lot descriptions of those But It seams that this sport encourages team work, girl power, and individuality to girls and women who may not feel like they fit in anywhere else Girls of all shapes, sizes and skill levels are accepted in this sport.The main character [...]

    24. Annie moves with her father from London to a small town in Illinois, where she struggles to fit in, but discovers a new passion and a supportive community in the exciting world of roller derby.Overall this is slightly formulaic, with stock characters from the clich d antagonist the nasty queen bee, to the hot boy love interest, the cool hip girlfriend, and the skate rat male friend who the heroine maybe should end up with other than the stud but of course that s what sequels are for.Once roller [...]
