The Cheerleaders Reviews
This sounds so fucking legit and interesting wtf I NEED IT NOW.
(like every book ever)
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 her sister and her friends five years ago. Monica is far from perfect, she does some majorly questionable things in the novel but I still rooted for her. I think the mystery aspect was done really well. I had no idea w ...more

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 time with YA thrillers in the past, if only because they either aren’t gritty enough, don’t have enough interesting characters, or have predictable and spoon fed mysteries for their audience. While I understand that sometimes ...more
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, following three separate tragedies involving cheerleaders. Bethany and Colleen were the first to die, killed in a car accident when their car hit a tree. Then, Susan and Juliana were murdered – strangled by Susan’s neighbour (who was s ...more
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 edge constantly guessing how all these girls died and if they were murdered, ever single one of them, all in different horrible ways. And if they were, they why, and most importantly, who was responsible?
This is one of ...more
4.5 stars out of 5. I loved Little Monsters so i was excited with reading this book. Very entertaining.
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 truth.
I love Kara Thomas’s books. Her main characters are complex, flawed, not always likable, but always easy to champion. She plots intricate mysteries with multiple plausible suspects, stories that I can read mult ...more
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 skeletons they have in their messed up past. Makes for a fun read.
My quick and simple overall: very enjoyable read!
