    "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...

    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...

    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...

    The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas is a young adult mystery that I?ve been anxiously awaiting having read this author before. Before I get too far into this review though I need to warn yet again that this one is going to be for the older crowd with a lot of darker content that may be d...

    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 sounds so fucking legit and interesting wtf I NEED IT NOW. (like every book ever) ...

    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...

    "Everyone goes through shit, and there's always someone somewhere who has it worse. It doesn't make what you're feeling any less real or any less shitty." Reading The Cheerleaders made me both excited and scared at the same time. I mean, hello, a book about cheerleaders suddenly f...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I've read other books by Kara Thomas and I've been eagerly awaiting a new release by her. The Cheerleaders has met and exceeded my expectations. It was really hard to put down this book. I wanted to keep reading as Monica, the main character, unwinds the mystery to what happened to ...

    GRADE: A+ Within a month, two cheerleaders die in an accident, two are murdered and one commits suicide. Five years later, high school junior Monica has question about her sister Jen?s suicide. She suspects people, including her police officer stepfather, of lying and covering up ...

    the twist was obvious but good full review to come. ...

    I read a lot of mysteries and I also happen to read a fair amount of young adult and when you combine the two, I'll be honest, it doesn't always work. But once in a while it does and in the case of The Cheerleaders, I think it's safe to say that is did, indeed work. It kept me on e...

    This is a thrilling YA masterpiece. I could not wait to get to the end to see how it all resolves - it was finished within 24 hours. In fact, it was finished in more like 6 straight hours of refusing to leave my bed on a Saturday. The thrill is a slow burn; it feels natural without fee...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I want to extend a special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book. I am so, so pleased that the YA Thriller community has someone like Kara Thomas repping it these days. As you all know I?ve had a harder ti...

    Release Date: July 31, 2018 Genre: Young Adult Murder Mystery Actual Rating: 5 stars Recommended Read YES!!! This book had me hooked from the first page all the way though to the end. Kara Thomas is getting better and better with every book she writes and I know I am go...

    This novel had so many great things going for it: the premise, intriguing beginning, likeable protagonist, and a few unexpected twists. I wanted to love this one but it fell a bit short (for me). Lots of reviewers have liked it. It was too YA for my taste + Monica?s love interest was...

    The Cheerleaders is a tense, emotion fuelled read, with a classically twisted mystery at the heart of it, some wonderfully immersive writing and a hugely engaging main protagonist. Monica struggles still with the loss of her sister 5 years ago to suicide. Prior to that Jen herself had...

    This wasn't quite what I expected - with the "all the cheerleaders are dead" I though it would be campy horror, but it was really a pretty straightforward murder mystery - but I love mysteries so did enjoy it overall. Monica's sister Jen committed suicide five years before -- right...

    I am not a huge mystery/thriller reader and maybe that's why I enjoyed this book so much. I personally really enjoyed the writing, the characters were interesting, there was no "girl-on-girl hate" that is so typical for YA books set in high school. I also couldn't put it down, I stayed...

    I've been in a mystery mood lately and this was a great book to read! It was pretty captivating. I did not see the final conclusions coming which is always a plus, but maybe I'm bad at guessing. ...

    Rating - Four stars Quite hontestly, i didn?t think i?d like this book at all. But i ended up loving it like a lot. Now i know. I have to read more kara thomas. That?s established. FULL REVIEW TO COME. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an adv...

    The Cheerleaders is being marketed as "a little bit Riverdale and a little bit Veronica Mars" and as a CW/WB superfan, this couldn't be more spot on (and awesome). The Cheerleaders is a YA thriller that will definitely have major appeal in the adult market as well. This is my first boo...

    This one was not for me. It felt dated, even though it hasn't been released yet! I can see myself recommending this to my teen library patrons who love true crime and mysteries, though. I feel that Monica was, for the most part, a strong female character. A touch of Veronica Mars; all ...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I've read other books by Kara Thomas and I've been eagerly awaiting a new release by her. The Cheerleaders has met and exceeded my expectations. It was really hard to put down this book. I wanted to keep reading as Monica, the main character, unwinds the mystery to what happened to ...

    GRADE: A+ Within a month, two cheerleaders die in an accident, two are murdered and one commits suicide. Five years later, high school junior Monica has question about her sister Jen?s suicide. She suspects people, including her police officer stepfather, of lying and covering up ...

    the twist was obvious but good full review to come. ...

    I read a lot of mysteries and I also happen to read a fair amount of young adult and when you combine the two, I'll be honest, it doesn't always work. But once in a while it does and in the case of The Cheerleaders, I think it's safe to say that is did, indeed work. It kept me on e...

    This is a thrilling YA masterpiece. I could not wait to get to the end to see how it all resolves - it was finished within 24 hours. In fact, it was finished in more like 6 straight hours of refusing to leave my bed on a Saturday. The thrill is a slow burn; it feels natural without fee...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I want to extend a special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book. I am so, so pleased that the YA Thriller community has someone like Kara Thomas repping it these days. As you all know I?ve had a harder ti...

    This novel had so many great things going for it: the premise, intriguing beginning, likeable protagonist, and a few unexpected twists. I wanted to love this one but it fell a bit short (for me). Lots of reviewers have liked it. It was too YA for my taste + Monica?s love interest was...

    The Cheerleaders is a tense, emotion fuelled read, with a classically twisted mystery at the heart of it, some wonderfully immersive writing and a hugely engaging main protagonist. Monica struggles still with the loss of her sister 5 years ago to suicide. Prior to that Jen herself had...

    This wasn't quite what I expected - with the "all the cheerleaders are dead" I though it would be campy horror, but it was really a pretty straightforward murder mystery - but I love mysteries so did enjoy it overall. Monica's sister Jen committed suicide five years before -- right...

    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...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I've read other books by Kara Thomas and I've been eagerly awaiting a new release by her. The Cheerleaders has met and exceeded my expectations. It was really hard to put down this book. I wanted to keep reading as Monica, the main character, unwinds the mystery to what happened to ...

    GRADE: A+ Within a month, two cheerleaders die in an accident, two are murdered and one commits suicide. Five years later, high school junior Monica has question about her sister Jen?s suicide. She suspects people, including her police officer stepfather, of lying and covering up ...

    the twist was obvious but good full review to come. ...

    I read a lot of mysteries and I also happen to read a fair amount of young adult and when you combine the two, I'll be honest, it doesn't always work. But once in a while it does and in the case of The Cheerleaders, I think it's safe to say that is did, indeed work. It kept me on e...

    This is a thrilling YA masterpiece. I could not wait to get to the end to see how it all resolves - it was finished within 24 hours. In fact, it was finished in more like 6 straight hours of refusing to leave my bed on a Saturday. The thrill is a slow burn; it feels natural without fee...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I want to extend a special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book. I am so, so pleased that the YA Thriller community has someone like Kara Thomas repping it these days. As you all know I?ve had a harder ti...

    Release Date: July 31, 2018 Genre: Young Adult Murder Mystery Actual Rating: 5 stars Recommended Read YES!!! This book had me hooked from the first page all the way though to the end. Kara Thomas is getting better and better with every book she writes and I know I am go...

    This novel had so many great things going for it: the premise, intriguing beginning, likeable protagonist, and a few unexpected twists. I wanted to love this one but it fell a bit short (for me). Lots of reviewers have liked it. It was too YA for my taste + Monica?s love interest was...

    The Cheerleaders is a tense, emotion fuelled read, with a classically twisted mystery at the heart of it, some wonderfully immersive writing and a hugely engaging main protagonist. Monica struggles still with the loss of her sister 5 years ago to suicide. Prior to that Jen herself had...

    This wasn't quite what I expected - with the "all the cheerleaders are dead" I though it would be campy horror, but it was really a pretty straightforward murder mystery - but I love mysteries so did enjoy it overall. Monica's sister Jen committed suicide five years before -- right...

    I am not a huge mystery/thriller reader and maybe that's why I enjoyed this book so much. I personally really enjoyed the writing, the characters were interesting, there was no "girl-on-girl hate" that is so typical for YA books set in high school. I also couldn't put it down, I stayed...

    I've been in a mystery mood lately and this was a great book to read! It was pretty captivating. I did not see the final conclusions coming which is always a plus, but maybe I'm bad at guessing. ...

    The Cheerleaders is being marketed as "a little bit Riverdale and a little bit Veronica Mars" and as a CW/WB superfan, this couldn't be more spot on (and awesome). The Cheerleaders is a YA thriller that will definitely have major appeal in the adult market as well. This is my first boo...

    This one was not for me. It felt dated, even though it hasn't been released yet! I can see myself recommending this to my teen library patrons who love true crime and mysteries, though. I feel that Monica was, for the most part, a strong female character. A touch of Veronica Mars; all ...

    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,...

    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...

    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...

    I've read other books by Kara Thomas and I've been eagerly awaiting a new release by her. The Cheerleaders has met and exceeded my expectations. It was really hard to put down this book. I wanted to keep reading as Monica, the main character, unwinds the mystery to what happened to ...

    I read a lot of mysteries and I also happen to read a fair amount of young adult and when you combine the two, I'll be honest, it doesn't always work. But once in a while it does and in the case of The Cheerleaders, I think it's safe to say that is did, indeed work. It kept me on e...

    This is a thrilling YA masterpiece. I could not wait to get to the end to see how it all resolves - it was finished within 24 hours. In fact, it was finished in more like 6 straight hours of refusing to leave my bed on a Saturday. The thrill is a slow burn; it feels natural without fee...

    (originally reviewed at thelibraryladies.com ) I want to extend a special thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book. I am so, so pleased that the YA Thriller community has someone like Kara Thomas repping it these days. As you all know I?ve had a harder ti...

    Release Date: July 31, 2018 Genre: Young Adult Murder Mystery Actual Rating: 5 stars Recommended Read YES!!! This book had me hooked from the first page all the way though to the end. Kara Thomas is getting better and better with every book she writes and I know I am go...

    This novel had so many great things going for it: the premise, intriguing beginning, likeable protagonist, and a few unexpected twists. I wanted to love this one but it fell a bit short (for me). Lots of reviewers have liked it. It was too YA for my taste + Monica?s love interest was...

    The Cheerleaders is a tense, emotion fuelled read, with a classically twisted mystery at the heart of it, some wonderfully immersive writing and a hugely engaging main protagonist. Monica struggles still with the loss of her sister 5 years ago to suicide. Prior to that Jen herself had...

    This wasn't quite what I expected - with the "all the cheerleaders are dead" I though it would be campy horror, but it was really a pretty straightforward murder mystery - but I love mysteries so did enjoy it overall. Monica's sister Jen committed suicide five years before -- right...

    I am not a huge mystery/thriller reader and maybe that's why I enjoyed this book so much. I personally really enjoyed the writing, the characters were interesting, there was no "girl-on-girl hate" that is so typical for YA books set in high school. I also couldn't put it down, I stayed...
