Shelly Struggles to Shine (The Derby Daredevils #2) by Kit Rosewater

 Shelly is part of a group of schoolmates that play in the Derby.  All the others had special skills.  She doesn't think she has any...

Amulet Books sent a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

The illustrations go with the story line well.  Sophie Escabasse is the illustrator.

What Shelly can do is draw.  She draws the team and wants to find them some costuming materials to make them stand out.  They have a tournament coming up and she wants to help them win.

Her first attempts don't turn out so well.  She even has to sit in the penalty box for one bout.  That gives her time to think of an alternate plan.

Her second plan works well.  Will she get picked as a shining star?
