Astrid is a twelve-year-old who has done everything with her best friend, Nicole, until now. Astrid wants to do roller derby camp and assumed Nicole will too, but when Nicole signs up for dance class with a different friend instead Astrid has to figure out life and who she is without Nicole.
Astrid is amazing as she figures out her feelings, overcomes the changes in her friendships, and is persistent in her journey to learn roller derby. Her struggle was great to see and to see her not give up was even better.
