This book starts off with a bang. By introducing the lead character into a new school, full of "Britney Spears" wannabes. You can actually imagine Annissa, short haired AND brunette (how dare she) trying to figure out how she is going to survive her year at the new school.
She is pitted against these wannabes who are determined to make her life as difficult as possible. On top of all that, they are part of the cheerleading squad that Annissa wants to join.
What ensues is a bunch of exchanges between the parties and funny (sometimes not so funny) events and overall a great storyline.
Mind you, the storyline has been DONE before, but it is well written and fun to read.
I was really into it until about 3/4 of the book when things get horribly mushy and extremely predictable. This, I did not care for so much. The author could have made the ending a tad less predictable. Which would have added more depth to the book.
Otherwise, it was a great read.
I adored Kieran Scott's first novel JINGLE BOY - in fact, it's one of my all-time favorite books ever. So I was enthralled to find out about the release of her newest novel I WAS A NON-BLONDE CHEERLEADER. While the storyline is a bit cliched at times, and is very reminiscent of the movie BRING IT ON, it poses it's own set of situations that the main character must overcome, which truly brings the story, and it's characters to life.Read more ›
Trying out for the squad? Yup, you heard right. Annisa tries out for the SDH Fighting Crabs Cheerleading Team and what? What's that you say? Uh huh, she makes it. She was a cheerleader back home, but that's a whole different story. In Southeast Florida, it's way more intense, more energetic, more pizzazz and more cattiness. As the series of sunrise and sunsets go by, the pressure builds up. Her huge geometry quiz to study for, überhot neighbor and friend Daniel Healy, regionals (yeah, the ones that appear on ESPN), every other female in the education field raising her blood pressure-can she handle the heat? Or will she explode? Find out for yourself! You won't be able to put the book down until you're finished!
A quirky and relatable novel, this one is a W-I-N-N-E-R!

This book was in great shape and hardbound. I was a little unhappy that there were cuss words in it, though, as I bought it for a student to read who is a cheerleader.Published on December 17, 2012 by MAD
