Think cheerleading is just pom-poms, “gimme an ‘R’,” and pleated skirts? Not so much. This book is an exhilarating trip through the rough-and-tumble world of competitive college cheerleading. Because college cheerleaders are extreme athletes who fly thirty feet in the air, build pyramids in which a single slip can send ten people crashing to the ground, and compete in National Championships that are won by hundredths of a point. CHEER! is a year-long odyssey into their universe, following three squads from tryouts to Nationals.
CHEER! has been called “the Friday Night Lights of a new generation.” Read much more about the book here.
