What's it About?
Debra Wheeler seems like any other high school reject: at fifteen, she's more into roller skating than boys, and Mom plays favorites with big sister Gennifer, the homecoming princess. With little to love in ultra-rural Bedrock, Indiana, Deb's counting down the days until she can skate away to join the roller derby.
When Gennifer is kidnapped, Mom's breakdown forces Deb to take charge. With no clue where to start and thugs on her tail, she turns to the only adult who has ever helped her out in a jam: Coach, the owner of the skating rink. So what if he has tusks and might be a troll? Coach gives her a pair of magical skates and sends her off into a world that reveals a magical, if somewhat sinister, nature. Deb soon discovers that beneath the "glamours" of everyday life flit a million fantastical stories--and her own might be the juiciest gossip in town.
The Midwestern lifestyle every teenager loves to hate is turned inside out as Deb careens through Rumspringa, biker gangs, flea markets and tractor pulls--all teeming with fae. The valiant troll Harlow tries to intervene before Deb strays from her mission into romance and roller derby, but will they join forces to save Gennifer, or be lost to this strange new realm, forever?
Readers will find Deb a smart and witty narrator who--like them--says the wrong thing, wishes she could be someone else, and falls for the wrong person. They'll be drawn in by a girl who is independent and street smart, and they'll fall for her destined BFF, the whimsical troll loner who guides them through this quirky dark fantasy romp.

I interrupt my Over It (The Kiss Off 2) excitement to talk about someone and something ELSE for a minute.
Jolea M. Harrison deserves a round of applause. She has just published the eighth and final book in her Guardians of the Word series, called King.
Eight books, you guys. That's one hell of a story arc. And these books have been thirty-odd years in the making.
Such dedication. I can't imagine sticking with one set of characters for SO. VERY. LONG. I haven't read this series (yet) myself but I HAVE snatched up book one.
And guess what? IT'S FREE RIGHT NOW. And the rest of the series is on sale!
If you like your fantasy epic, then it's a series definitely worth checking out.
