Getting on the cheerleading squad is hard enough without a psycho on the loose...
For Harrow High freshman Dakota Densford, life should be easy. All she has to worry about is talking to cute boys and remembering her locker combination. But when cheerleading tryouts draw near, she learns the cards are stacked against her—spots on the varsity team are limited. Dakota faces her competition head-on, but when her life is threatened, that takes the competition to a whole new level.
High school is never easy, and freshman year is off to a rough start…
Between Dakota’s uniform being ripped up and masked vandals trashing another girl’s house, everyone is suspect. To complicate matters further, Dakota has a thing for Andy McGraw, but she finds him locking lips with another girl.
The harassment continues, and when Dakota finds suspicious flyers inside her best friend’s locker, she doesn’t know what to think. The principal’s unfeeling, overachiever daughter, Brittani Barlow, will do anything to secure her place on the team. But Dakota’s neighbor, on the other hand, definitely fits the profile of a sociopath.
Cheerleading has become a game of life or death.
Cheerleading can be Murder is a modern version of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street Books. This is what really drew me into the book. Having always been a fan of Stine (I read all his books when I was younger) I wanted to find something similar and this is just that! It is filled with horror and suspense and will leave readers gripping the pages. You won’t figure out “who-dun-it” till the very end which makes the book SO MUCH BETTER. Overall, I really enjoyed this one and I will definitely be reading the next book in the series to see where it goes. This one doesn’t end in a cliffhanger per se, but it does end in a way that basically tells you that there is indeed another book. Also, the second book is available now so that helps too!
Overall, this is a great read and would be perfect for all young adult’s out there and us adults who like a bit of nostalgia in our reading
