What A League of Their Own is to women's baseball, Roller Babes is to women's professional roller derby.
Set in the 1950s, Roller Babes dramatically captures the story of Lottie Karla Zimmerman's inspirational rise from the tenements of the Bronx to her stardom as the Roller Derby queen. Her road is anything but smooth as she tangles with love, loss, and the 'bad" girls of the banked track.
The widely watched yet underappreciated sport of Roller Derby comes to life in Roller Babes, reminding us not only of a simpler time but also of the power of the human spirit to overcome enormous obstacles.

Once th actual derby stuff starts, around chapter 10 or so, the book gets less boring and the author stops trying so hard with all the excessive slang. It begins to feel less like a crappy potboiler and more like an actual bookWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
