Whip it dress

If books were dresses...

(a weekly post where I create fashionable wear with book cover art)

Whip It
by Shauna Cross

First reprint: September 15, 2009

Movie release: October 2, 2009

Description from amazon:
Skirts, Skates, & Scrapes!
All the old school skills with a new punk rock attitude
Come see The Lone Star Derby Girls
Austin’s All-Girl Roller Derby League
The Holy Rollers vs. The Fight Crew
Halftime Concert by the Chimney Sweeps
This ain’t no cheerleading clinic, y’all!

Meet Bliss Cavendar, an indie-rock-loving misfit stuck in the tiny town of Bodeen, Texas. Her pageant-addicted mother expects her to compete for the coveted Miss Bluebonnet crown, but Bliss would rather feast on roaches than be subjected to such rhinestone tyranny.

Bliss’s escape? Roller Derby.

When she discovers a league in nearby Austin, Bliss embarks on an epic journey full of hilarious tattooed girls, delicious boys in bands, and a few not-so-awesome realities even the most hard-core derby chick has to learn.

Woo-hoo! Go, Girls!


  1. Looks great! I really want to see the movie and read the book :)

  2. Great cover. Love the dress. My first thought when I read this was the song from DIVo, Whip it, whip it good! LOL, I think I should go back to bed.

  3. I recently read the book and it made me want to go join a roller derby team. But instead of gettign beaten and bruised, I decided to go see a derby bout instead. The movie was a lot of fun too. The derby in the movie was more brutal than the derby I saw. Great derby names too. Oh, and I am finally able to spread some awardness to you:

  4. That dress is gorgeous. I saw the film at the weekend and loved it, so I'll have to read the book one of these days... :) I heart this feature. Keep it up!

  5. This looks like a great read! I love the dress.
