Meghan Dougherty and Alece Birnbach are co-authors. Their first book was just published on July first! Rise of the Undead Redhead is a book about several girls that start a roller derby team. These girls become the best of friends even though they are a pretty unlikely group. They have different personalities and different bodies. The main character Dorothy lives with her grandma in a funeral home. Her grandma is eccentric with spiky pink hair and crazy make up. Their (funeral) home is filled with crazy things: the closet is a coffin, the sofas are old gurneys, their dining room table is an embalming table and the chairs are church kneelers!
This story sounds crazy and fun filled but also empowering. Meghan and Alece have a mission to help girls feel confident. Roller derby is helpful because any girl can do it and be great!
Meghan said “It’s about deciding that you are awesome”! She “thinks reading should be fun” and also wants to help boost girls confidence.
You can buy the book at Tattered Cover or Barnes And Nobles.
