Review by: Riley
I’ve always thought deeply about coincidences, in real life and in books. And to find a book that questions them, especially one with a good mystery, I was immediately intrigued.
The Cheerleaders is told mostly by angsty Monica, who lost her older cheerleader sister five years prior to a supposed suicide. But Monica doesn’t want to believe it, especially because she was the fifth cheerleader to die in a string of accidents. So Monica begins to question what happened five years ago, but ends up questioning the present too.
What I loved about this book was the fact that Monica wasn’t the perfect character. She is flawed, both in logic and actions. The plot twist was a perfect punch in the gut, and I am still recovering from the ending, but in the best way possible.
This book is for fans of a twisted whodunnit, like The Lies They Tell and Here Lies Daniel Tate. The Cheerleaders is one of those books that hits just right, that makes you want to go back and read it for the first time again.
