The Derby Daredevils
Shelly Struggles to Shine
"Identities are woven seamlessly into the narrative and support the explorations of friendship, communication, and personal identity. The Derby Daredevils are a wonderfully enjoyable lot and a welcome addition to the middle-grade scene. Readers need not have read book one to thoroughly enjoy book two. Bring on more roller derby! VERDICT Readers will enjoy this welcoming and acutely relatable sequel. Recommended."
-School Library Journal review
"Escabasse's cartoon illustrations continue to delight. Rosewater throws in subtle points about making assumptions and communicating one's feelings, and champions the truth that everyone has a unique perspective and brings something to the table, bolstering the book's main theme of teamwork."
Illustrated by Sophie Escabasse
Coming in Fall 2020 from Amulet Books
