Derby Girl (Whip It) by Shauna Cross


I finished this book last night. It was amazing.


Meet Bliss Cavendar, a blue haired, indie-rock loving misfit stuck in the tiny town of Bodeen, Texas. Her pageant-addicted mother expects her to compete for the coveted Miss Blue Bonnet crown, but Bliss would rather feast on roaches than be subjected to such rhinestone tyranny. Bliss’ escape? Take up Roller Derby. When she discovers a league in nearby Austin, Bliss embarks on an epic journey full of hilarious tattooed girls, delicious boys in bands, and a few not-so-awesome realities even the most bad-assed derby chick has to learn.


Shauna Cross wrote a beautiful and engaging novel. I loved Bliss. She was self-determined, and was her own person. This was one of those books that made me stay up for hours reading it. I couldn't stop. I strongly recommend Derby Girl. It was addicting and totally worth buying!
