Book Review: How We Roll

How We Roll

Natasha Friend

 

Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that makes your hair fall out. It sucks. Especially during high school. When Quinn McAvoy’s hair starts falling out the summer before 8th grade, her whole life starts falling apart. She no longer fits in with her school, especially not with her friends. So when her family decides to move Gulls Head, Massachusetts, she has a chance to start over. A chance to start a new life.

On the first day of school, Quinn wears a wig to school. How would anyone know that that’s not her real hair? When the popular girls take her in as one of their own, Quinn thinks she may have finally found a place for herself in this new school, until a boy in a wheelchair turns her world upside down. Ever since his accident, Nick has had a hard time fitting in. When Quinn decides to become friends with him, she changes both their worlds for the better.

How We Roll tells the story of Quinn McAvoy, a girl with many things that go wrong in her life, including everyone finding out her secret, a brother who has autism, and friendship that could possibly fall apart at one touch until one day changes it all. How We Roll is a story of how to deal with whatever life throws your way, how one person can change your life, and how friendship will make you a better person.
