200 years from now, Trish "Trash" Nupindju lives on the newly inhabited Mars, whose settlers live under harsh and ruthless conditions. Trish dreams of only one thing: becoming a hoverderby star.

But, what happens when a half-dead Martian shows up on her doorstep and changes everything? Find out in the first volume of the new science fiction trilogy created by Jessica Abel.

It was Oh Kay. Interesting story, but thin. Surprising because it's obvious that there was a lot of effort in it's world building.

This was a really fun one and just what I needed. Roller derby on Mars, a hefty and believable dose of teen angst, and a bit of a mystery to close it out. I'll definitely be picking up Volume 2!

Yah! I've liked Abel for a long time now. I already care about Patricia and am exited to read what's next. It comes out next week.

8leagueboot I love how Abel just dives into Trish's teen angst and gets it right. Sometimes I feel like writers who go for writing believable teens by focusing on their emotional frustrations miss the mark and end up writing unlikeable teens. 2y

readinginthedark Must read more comics and graphic novels! 😊Was the Roller Girl one good? 2y
EchoLogical @readinginthedark I thought it was okay. I'm not sure if I'm really a graphic novel person, though. 2y
readinginthedark Well, that's okay. To each his/her own. I think they're worth exploring from time to time, especially since there are so many different sub-genres now. But no judgment. 😉 2y

GemintheRough @Alicia ugh stupid typos 2y
Alicia @GemintheRough haha! I am the queen of typos so I feel you. I will have to check it out next time I'm home! I usually go to Mission Comics. Also I love Oakland too. I dream that one day I can afford to live there 😂😭 2y

I liked it, but I'm gonna need more. It ends a little abruptly, and I wish it had been a bit more fleshed out. But I definitely want to continue! Also, I don't want to live on Mars, unless I could be a Rollergirl. #graphicnovel #midnightbookgirl

I am very lucky in that I have about 5 libraries within 15 minutes of my house but bookstores are another story. The closest bookstore is about 25-30 minutes across town so when we had lunch near a Barnes & Noble I convinced my husband to make a stop. So despite yesterday's plea to myself to stop buying books, everyone in the family picked up something. I, of course, got the most. 😬

(There is a comic book store near work that I need check out.)

Serotonin Amazon is a major danger to me - easy access and purchases in a matter of a few clicks 😆😩 📚 💰 💰 💰 😵 2y
Alfoster Amazon is Satan! Guess that makes me a believer as I can't stay away either!😂😂😂😂 2y
MarriedtoMrT @Alfoster @Serotonin I also have an Amazon habit but paired with a need for instant gratification so my Amazon purchases tend to only be ebooks (which also tend to be cheaper and make me feel less guilty.) I rarely buy physical books so this was kind of special (but expensive!) 2y

Patricia "Trish Trash" Nupondju is a talented young hoverderby player on Mars 200 years in the future. Trish wants desperately to go pro because it seems like the only way to escape a future of poverty and hard labor on her family's moisture farm in Candor Chasma. But even if she could make the team, she's too young to get a contract, and her family is going beyond faster than get escape velocity.
