The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas


There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.

First there was the car accident—two girls gone after hitting a tree on a rainy night. Not long after, the murders happened. Those two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it. Monica’s sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lost.

That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it’s not that easy. She just wants to forget. Only, Monica’s world is starting to unravel. There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk, an unearthed, years-old cell phone, a strange new friend at school. . . . Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over. Some people in town know more than they’re saying. And somehow Monica is at the center of it all.

There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn’t mean anyone else is safe.

There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook. What a creepy line! In 3 different events, all of the cheerleaders in Sunnybrook died causing the town to question those living around them.

The novel mostly focuses on Monica, who is the younger sister of Jennifer, one of the deceased cheerleaders. I liked Monica, but some of the things that she did drove me crazy! She wasn’t the smartest at times.

The ending completely surprised me. There was some parts that I liked, but others that I didn’t. I think the ending is part of the reason why I didn’t move the book up to a 4.

3 calculators out of a potential 5. It wasn’t perfect, but I liked it!
