Roller derby is back, in all of its rowdy and raucous glory

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.

Shauna Cross' Whip It is then basis of the 2009 Drew Barrymore film Whip It, starring Ellen Page, Alia Shawkat, Marcia Gay Harden and Daniel Stern.
