Roll With ItBook - 2011
Neddy's life is structured, following a plan laid out by her father and the footsteps of her mother. When he leaves the country and Neddy embarks on her first year of college, she decides it's time she calls the shots. Rejecting the sacrifices necessary to succeed as a figure skater--early mornings, a diet of apples and celery, and the pressure to perform--Neddy dives into the rough and tumble world of roller derby instead, and embraces the feisty camaraderie of its community. Neddy's new-found agency in life means she is free to consider her guilt over not following her mother's path, to navigate a new love, and to discover who she is and what it is that she truly wants.
