Summary

Summary

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.


Author Notes

Pamela Ribon is an American author, television writer, screenwriter, blogger and actress. In November 2014 she found a Barbie book from 2010 titled "I Can be a Computer Engineer." She decried elements of the book where Barbie appeared to be reliant on male colleagues. Mattel has since ceased publishing the book.
