Simon and Schuster
In the fast-paced, hard-hitting, super cheeky, all-female world of banked track roller derby, two young women will have to decide if their budding friendship is stronger than the pull of a team when a win is on the line.

When life starts coming at you like a freight train, you have two options: run away screaming or lean into the hit.

From the first day of Fresh Meat Orientation for the Eastside Roller Girls, Jennifer and Maisie knew they’d be fast friends. But when they’re drafted to different teams, the pull of competition — and their increasingly messy personal lives — threaten to drive them apart. In roller derby you take your hits, get back up, and learn how to be a better jammer, a better blocker, a better lover, and a better friend. Derby can heal your heart . . . but it might break a bone or two in the process.

Bestselling novelist, screenwriter, and retired Los Angeles Derby Doll Pamela Ribon (Going In Circles, Why Girls Are Weird) joins artist Veronica Fish (Archie, Silk) for a tale of friendship, heartbreak, and truly epic jams.

I was a derby skater for 10 years with my local league (go Lava City Roller Derby!) This book does a great job capturing the experience of both the athletic and social aspects of the sport. Not going to lie, I got a little choked up and am reconsidering my retirement...

A look into the life and friendship of two roller derby girls as they work their way up from rookies. At its heart it's much more about making and maintaining new friendships and learning to deal with the chaos of life, but the derby stuff is a big part too. They really illustrate the team sport dynamic well and do a great job of showing how it can manifest in different ways with the two main teams.
