    I read this for an upcoming reading experiment video & I really enjoyed it. I will say that I didn't find it as compelling as her previous book, LITTLE MONSTERS. Which if y'all haven't read little monsters get with the program that book is where it's at fam! Something that kind of ...

    An okay young adult mystery. Honestly, not my favorite, but still enjoyable. The Cheerleaders CW: suicide, murder, death, statutory rape, sexual assault, substance abuse, abortion One of the things I really like about the story was it?s attention to controversial topics that a...

    "I am a victim, whether or not I feel like one." ^ I wanted to include more of this quote, but it contains spoilers, so I'll let you experience the rest of what Monica has to say there when you read the book for yourself. ;) I know some readers like to write off any type of YA no...

    I've enjoyed the author's Prep School Confidential series, so I had high hopes for this one. I wasn't disappointed. It did drag on a little, but overall, this is an excellent addition to the YA mystery genre. This isn't a fluffy murder mystery, despite what its title would imply. It...

    Page-turning mystery! 5 cheerleaders in a small town die, in 3 separate incidents, within a month?s time. Is it a coincidence or is there something sinister going on in the town of Sunnybrook? ?Some people say a curse fell over our town five years ago.? The Cheerleade...

    Hmm.... I get it. YA is a genre that caters to everyone. But YA Thrillers, in general, are the outcasts lot of the bunch because.....they just suck in general. Sure there are a few hidden gems but these are far too few and too rare to count. I just....when it comes down to it....kid...

    More like 2,75* - the ending kind of ruined everything for me. It was so... anticlimactic? I don't know, I thought it would be smarter than that. I'm pretty sure though, that most people who like dark young adult temporary thriller type of books will enjoy this. It was written ve...

    This was a decent YA thriller! I definitely did not like it as much as Little Monsters, but it was still a good time. There were quite a few things I liked about this book but ultimately the mystery was just sort of meh to me. ...

    Five dead cheerleaders all in a row! ?They all smile at me: Jen, Juliana, Susan, Colleen, and Bethany. It really is a beautiful picture. By the end of the season, everyone in it is dead?. There?s been no cheerleading squad at Sunnybrook High for the past five years, followi...

    SOOOOOOOO FREAKINGGGGGGGGGGG GOOOOOOOOOOOD! The Cheerleaders was amazing from the very first page. It had me guessing who was a suspect or not. Then it would throw in some kind of curveball and make me second everything that I was originally thinking. I loved it and now I'm kind of ...

    This story was addictive within the first few chapters. I actually did not find it predictable. I loved it as much as I did the author?s other book, Little Monsters. I love a book where there are so many shady characters that you are basically inthralled just to see what dark skeleto...

    Review trigger warning: statutory rape, pedophilia mention, abortion mention Arguably my largest pet peeve when it comes to reading is when a book seems awesome but then it decides to do you wrong and include unchallenged problematic crap. This book was amazing for the first 7...

    3.5/5 stars First, I'd like to thank the lovely Chelsea for providing my copy of The Cheerleaders . Chelsea knew that I needed this book as soon as it was being publicized. I've never read a book by Kara Thomas, and although I am hesitant with YA novels, I have heard amazing things...

    I've enjoyed the author's Prep School Confidential series, so I had high hopes for this one. I wasn't disappointed. It did drag on a little, but overall, this is an excellent addition to the YA mystery genre. This isn't a fluffy murder mystery, despite what its title would imply. It...

    I read this for an upcoming reading experiment video & I really enjoyed it. I will say that I didn't find it as compelling as her previous book, LITTLE MONSTERS. Which if y'all haven't read little monsters get with the program that book is where it's at fam! Something that kind of ...

    An okay young adult mystery. Honestly, not my favorite, but still enjoyable. The Cheerleaders CW: suicide, murder, death, statutory rape, sexual assault, substance abuse, abortion One of the things I really like about the story was it?s attention to controversial topics that a...

    "I am a victim, whether or not I feel like one." ^ I wanted to include more of this quote, but it contains spoilers, so I'll let you experience the rest of what Monica has to say there when you read the book for yourself. ;) I know some readers like to write off any type of YA no...

    I've enjoyed the author's Prep School Confidential series, so I had high hopes for this one. I wasn't disappointed. It did drag on a little, but overall, this is an excellent addition to the YA mystery genre. This isn't a fluffy murder mystery, despite what its title would imply. It...

    Page-turning mystery! 5 cheerleaders in a small town die, in 3 separate incidents, within a month?s time. Is it a coincidence or is there something sinister going on in the town of Sunnybrook? ?Some people say a curse fell over our town five years ago.? The Cheerleade...

    Hmm.... I get it. YA is a genre that caters to everyone. But YA Thrillers, in general, are the outcasts lot of the bunch because.....they just suck in general. Sure there are a few hidden gems but these are far too few and too rare to count. I just....when it comes down to it....kid...

    More like 2,75* - the ending kind of ruined everything for me. It was so... anticlimactic? I don't know, I thought it would be smarter than that. I'm pretty sure though, that most people who like dark young adult temporary thriller type of books will enjoy this. It was written ve...

    This was a decent YA thriller! I definitely did not like it as much as Little Monsters, but it was still a good time. There were quite a few things I liked about this book but ultimately the mystery was just sort of meh to me. ...

    3.5/5 stars First, I'd like to thank the lovely Chelsea for providing my copy of The Cheerleaders . Chelsea knew that I needed this book as soon as it was being publicized. I've never read a book by Kara Thomas, and although I am hesitant with YA novels, I have heard amazing things...

    There are no longer cheerleaders allowed at Sunnybrook High School. It's been that way for five years, ever since five members of the team died within a short span of each other. One of those girls was Monica's sister, Jen. Jen committed suicide after four of her fellow cheerleaders di...

    I don?t know if we?re cursed. All I know is that my sister wouldn?t have killed herself. But if she did, why didn?t she leave a note explaining why? Five cheerleaders dead over the course of three weeks. This happened five years ago. One of those girls was Monica?s sister,...

    4.5 stars OKAY, THIS BOOK COMPLETELY TOOK ME BY SURPRISE. I wanted to start off my October with a creepy read and so I chose this one and I had no idea I would end up loving the hell out of this. I'm not typically a fan of YA thrillers (they usually always disappoint me) but this one ...

    Review trigger warning: statutory rape, pedophilia mention, abortion mention Arguably my largest pet peeve when it comes to reading is when a book seems awesome but then it decides to do you wrong and include unchallenged problematic crap. This book was amazing for the first 7...

    3.5/5 stars First, I'd like to thank the lovely Chelsea for providing my copy of The Cheerleaders . Chelsea knew that I needed this book as soon as it was being publicized. I've never read a book by Kara Thomas, and although I am hesitant with YA novels, I have heard amazing things...

    There are no longer cheerleaders allowed at Sunnybrook High School. It's been that way for five years, ever since five members of the team died within a short span of each other. One of those girls was Monica's sister, Jen. Jen committed suicide after four of her fellow cheerleaders di...

    I don?t know if we?re cursed. All I know is that my sister wouldn?t have killed herself. But if she did, why didn?t she leave a note explaining why? Five cheerleaders dead over the course of three weeks. This happened five years ago. One of those girls was Monica?s sister,...

    4.5 stars OKAY, THIS BOOK COMPLETELY TOOK ME BY SURPRISE. I wanted to start off my October with a creepy read and so I chose this one and I had no idea I would end up loving the hell out of this. I'm not typically a fan of YA thrillers (they usually always disappoint me) but this one ...

    Monica?s sister Jennifer died five years ago. Jennifer committed suicide shortly after four of her friends died? they were all cheerleaders. The town was upset by the loss of the five teens, and the school ended the cheerleader program. The deaths were all somewhat suspicious ? c...

    HOLY CRAP. this was so good. so freaking good. i've heard so many good things about kara thomas and her books and this lived up to all that praise. the pacing was excellent and the reveals were so GOOD. ugh i can't wait to read more from her. *arc provided by delacorte press from ya...

    Searching for answers felt like grasping around in the dark. At some point, you have to choose to live in the light. I?ve loved Kara Thomas? previous two books. Her bleak, desolate settings emphasize the darkness contained within the plot. And boy, is Kara Thomas DARK. Howev...

    2.5 stars? This book looked to have everything I could have ever wanted, even down to the blood spatter on the cover. Sadly, I?m wondering if 2.5 stars is too high. I think I liked Monica. She?s got a lot of things going on and I could understand why she was doing they things...

    4.5 stars out of 5. I loved Little Monsters so i was excited with reading this book. Very entertaining. ...
