In the first book Rise of the Undead Redhead, Dorothy Moore is a tween who’s mother chooses to move to Nashville to continue her dream of becoming a singer. Dorothy moves in with her grandmother who is a funeral planner. Her grandma has funeral furniture that freaks Dorothy out. Dorothy meets some new friends at school who ends up being on a roller derby team together called slugs and hisses. Dorothy’s grandma was a derby star back in the day and helps the team to play in the derby championship.

Meghan and Alece wrote the series to teach girls that girls can do anything, teamwork and to be yourself.

The message of the series is that ANYONE can play roller derby no matter who you are and what you look like. If you can skate you can play!!!
