by Kit Rosewater

Part of the Derby Daredevils Series

Shelly Struggles to Shine (The Derby Daredevils Book #2) Synopsis

Book #2 in this highly illustrated middle-grade series explores what it means to be a team player Now part of the official junior roller derby league, the Derby Daredevils are ready to compete in their first tournament. Kenzie writes new game plays. Bree works on her speed. Tomoko sharpens her blocking skills. And Jules fearlessly hip checks everyone in sight. But Shelly isn't sure what she's best at. In hopes of taking home the tournament's Star Skater award, Shelly designs extra-special gear for the Daredevils. But not everything works as well as Shelly imagined, and she can't get the team on board. Without the gear, how will Shelly shine on the track? With high-energy illustrations from Sophie Escabasse and lots of roller derby action, Book #2 in the series explores individuality while hitting home what it really means to be part of a team.
