Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson

It's the summer before starting middle school, and Astrid is ready to spend it hanging out with her best friend, Nicole. The two have always done everything together, so why would this summer be any different? For one thing, Nicole has no interest in attending roller derby camp with Astrid and has signed up for dance camp instead. Over the course of the summer, Astrid learns that friends sometimes grow apart, and she learns how to work harder than she’s ever worked in pursuit of roller derby glory!

Raindrops Roll by April Pulley Sayre

"Rain is coming. You can feel it in the air." With rhythmic language and beautiful photography, Raindrops Roll begins with descriptions of the various signs of impending rain. Insects look for shelter under leaves and inside pods, while a bird enjoys the shower from a comfy perch.
