I've just finished ROLLER GIRL by Victoria Jamieson.
I totally get why it won a Newbery Honor.
I laughed, I cried... I loved how BIG Astrid's emotions were and how real her friendship struggles felt. Also, some great mother-daughter moments and a nice messages about teamwork (vs. individual glory) tucked inside.
Read it! You won't be sorry.
And: go, Asteroid!
