I love Talking Derby! I felt it. I breathed it. It’s a visceral, emotional, funny and smart love letter to roller derby and it made me fall in love too. I really enjoyed Kate Hargreaves way with words, she conveys action, blood, sweat, pain and joy in a lyrical and compelling fashion. I want to strap on a pair of skates myself… But I don’t know that I’m tough enough.
I love this fantasy young adult novel Troll or Derby by Red Tash! I adore the way the story is told by the two protagonists Deb and Harlow and I am eagerly awaiting the next adventure in this gritty fantasy tale. Maybe Red can be bribed with cupcakes?
