    I like this book because I love being competitive this book shows that and I relate to this book because my freinds have been polled away and I had to move on just like Astrid.

    I Thought this was a pretty good book about a girl trying to accomplish her goal of roller skating

    This is a really good book that shows that you do not need to cower and stay hidden when something tough comes up. It shows that you should always have friends by your side and ask them for help when you really need them and give them help when they truly and honestly need it.

    Astrid is trying something new. Doing a Roller Derby camp without ever rollerskating before. Getting used to having her old best friend hanging out with different people.

    I really liked this book. It showed strength, compassion, teamwork and many other things. Astrid/Asteroid was a very nice girl but she had some hard times in her life. Her best friend became friends with her enemy and she goes to a skate camp and she is the worst skater. Astrid/Asteroid pushes through and shows that she can do everything.

    I really enjoyed Roller Girl. It is about a girl name Astrid who went to a roller derby when she was younger and got inspired by a player to try roller derby. At first she stunk at it, but now Astrid absolutely loves it and discovered a passion for it.

    Roller girl was a very excellent, great book. It is about a girl named Astrid, she has a best friend Nicole. And Astrid and Nicole went to a roller skating derby, and astrid absolutely loved it. And she wants to be a roller girl when she gets older .

    Roller Girl was about a girl who went to a roller derby. She loved the roller derby so she joined the Rosebuds. The Rosebuds is roller derby team\training camp. Astrid shows perseverance and even though at first she is not the best skater but by the end with help from Rainbow Bite (a real roller derby girl from the Rose City Rollers from the roller derby Astrid went to Astrid looks up to her)Astrid is really good.

  21. Bubba360 says:

    This was one of my favorite books. It had lots of action throughout the book and my favorite part of the book was Astrid’s nickname

  22. hannahp says:

    I like roller girl because it is interesting and it has a little bit of sadness but I recommend it to people that like graphic novels.

  23. cheyennel says:

    I like roller girl because one of the girls are interested in trying to roller skate and she accomplished her goal.

  24. Caseyt says:

    No people do not need to share interests or hobbies to stay friends. It is important to share some interests but not all. My friend and I share some interests but to be exactly alike would not be fun.

  25. caitlincorless says:

    Astrid and her best friend Nicole start to drift apart as they develop new interests. Do you think people need to share the same interests and hobbies in order to stay friends? Is sharing interests important?

    Did anyone else really, really want to try roller derby after reading this book? I am a terrible roller skater, but “Roller Girl” made me want to give it a try again.
