A giftable set of two graphic novels from bestselling and Newbery-Honor-winning author Victoria Jamieson

Victoria Jamieson’s Newbery-Honor-winning and New York Times bestselling Roller Girl and her critically acclaimed All’s Faire in Middle School are now available together, in a slipcase set.

Roller Girl, Victoria Jamieson’s graphic novel debut, earned a Newbery Honor and five starred reviews. It’s an inspiring coming-of-age story about friendship, perseverance, and girl power! For most of her twelve years, Astrid has done everything with her best friend Nicole. But after Astrid falls in love with roller derby and signs up for derby camp, Nicole decides to go to dance camp instead. And so begins the most difficult summer of Astrid’s life as she struggles to keep up with the older girls at camp, hang on to the friend she feels slipping away, and cautiously embark on a new friendship…and be strong enough to be a roller girl!

All’s Faire in Middle School earned three starred reviews and was a New York Times Editor’s Choice. It perfectly—and authentically—captures the bittersweetness of middle school life with humor, warmth, and understanding. Eleven-year-old Imogene (Impy) has grown up with two parents working at the Renaissance Faire, and she’s eager to begin her own training as a squire. First, though, she’ll need to prove her bravery. Luckily Impy has just the quest in mind—she’ll go to public school after a life of being homeschooled! But it’s not easy to act like a noble knight-in-training in middle school.

A striking package: Victoria Jamieson’s bright, kid-appealing artwork is instantly eye-catching. This box set stands out!

For all readers: Warm and funny with a pitch-perfect middle grade voice, these graphic novels are just right for reluctant and ravenous readers alike.

Great for gifting: Two full-length graphic novels in an attractive slipcase make for an ideal birthday, holiday, or any day gift!

For fans of Raina Telgemeier: Readers who love Smile, Sisters, and Drama will find kindred spirits in Victoria Jamieson’s funny, flawed, and overwhelmingly relatable heroines.
