"Roller Girl's message of self-discovery, friendship, and perseverance will roll its way right into your heart." --Raina Telgemeier, New York Times bestselling author of Sisters

"This spiky, winning graphic novel captures the bittersweetness of finding a new passion and saying goodbye to your former, more uncertain self." --New York Times Book Review

* "Jamieson captures this snapshot of preteen angst with a keenly decisive eye, brilliantly juxtaposing the nuances of roller derby with the twists and turns of adolescent girls' friendships...Full of charm and moxie--don't let this one roll past." --Kiruks, starred review

* "The story will engage readers... Offer this comic to fans of Telgemeier's Smile and Laura Lee Gulledge's Page by Paige."--School Library Journal, starred review

* "Readers will stand up and cheer."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Jamieson's dialogue captures coming-of-age...so authentically"--Horn Book, starred review

* "[A] sharp and engaging graphic novel"--BCCB, starred review

"Visually, Roller Girl is very appealing -- think Lynn Johnston with a modern edge -- but it's the storytelling that really sets this graphic novel apart...A great choice for tween girls, whether they're remaking themselves, renegotiating friendships or just weathering the stormy seas of early adolescence." --Chicago Tribune
