Description

Fifteen-(Earth)-year-old Trish "Trash" Nupindju dreams of derby stardom. When you come from a multiracial family of poor moisture farmers on Mars, making the local hover derby team seems like the only way out. But when Trish finally gets (AKA sneaks into) a tryout, will this "fresh meat" have what it takes to make the cut? And then when a half-dead Martian shows up on her doorstep, how will that change what Trish had planned for her future? Find out in the first volume of this new science fiction trilogy from award-winning graphic novelist Jessica Abel.

Part science fiction, part rollicking roller derby adventure story, Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars is a compelling character study of a young girl who feels trapped by the circumstances of her birth and economic situation.
