It was pretty much your typical Girl has a crush on the most popular boy. The characters Bethany and Jack were so cute together! They didn't go exchanging I love you's with each other- which i really liked. Nor did she became popular just because she made the cheerleading squad. It made the book more real.
I thought the ring Jack gave Bethany was a nice touch to it . It seemed more real by giving that to her instead of just saying words l love you to each other in few weeks they known each other like most books do. I'm more an action kind of girl.To me actions speak loader then words ever do.
Overall it was an entertaining book!
I had few problem with The best friend who ditched Bethany for a guy but everything worked out in the end. This book will always be in my favorite pile.
Bethany and her BFF, Moni, decide to try out for the cheerleading squad -mostly as a joke. When they actually make it, they're stunned, but no more so than their friends and family.
Cheerleading involves so many rules, but Bethany's questions aren't answered in the massive rule book. What happens when your best guy friend is mad that you've turned cheerleader? Why does the most popular guy in school start talking to you? Does he actually like you? When will the rest of the cheerleaders treat you as one of them?
Bethany and Moni are almost humiliated when they show up to cheer at a wrestling match and no one else for the team is there. Instead of giving up, the girls cheer through the match, though it's hard when you don't understand the rules of wrestling.
But that match just might have gotten them noticed by two super-hot guys. Now they're both dating boys, but also trying to navigate through the waters of high school without being attacked by a shark.
Charity Tahmaseb and Darcy Vance team up to create a world where geeks mix with the popular crowd. While the characters bring up several social questions, the story is really just pure fun.

Bethany was definitely my favorite character, I totally understood her. I always really enjoyed when she hung out with her geek crowd and their "Geek Nights", especially Todd the leader of the geeks. Moni was sort of the typical best friend sidekick and I was never really sure if I could completely trust nice guy jock Jack, well until the end that is. I liked that uncertainty.
I found myself perplexed as to where the story was going, in a way the story reminded me of this movie I had seen so I wondered, would it end that way or would it end the way I would expect it to. But I'm not going to tell you which way it ended, have to read the book for that! In the end what happened happened and I think the conclusion made sense and wasn't exactly what I was expecting (in a good way!) I guess I could have used a bit more of the geek mixed in with the popular/cheerleading aspects of the story but it will still a lot of fun!
Bethany is pretty happy with her life. She has great friends, she loves her family and enjoys school - at least the classes. Because she is a geek her social status at school isn't very high and people more often than not laugh about her. When her best friend Moni (another geek) decides to try to get in the varsity cheerleading squad Bethany is there to support her. But when both girls make the team things change a lot. Nobody at school is ready for geeky cheerleaders and both girls have to go through some hard times. Not only the popular kids but even the other geeks aren't happy with the girls. Everyone wants them to get back to what's "normal": geeks only concentrating on geeky things and not on popular stuff like cheerleading.
But Bethany is not ready to stop because she has worked hard to become a cheerleader. And when she and her crush Jack (one of the popular boys) finally become a pair life seems to be perfect.
However when Moni changes and beliefs into lies told by others things get very complicated and hard for Bethany. All of a sudden she has lost both her boyfriend and her best friend but thankfully some old and new friends are there for her.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Bethany is a great heroine. She's an intelligent and honest person who doesn't really care about being popular. She's also a great friend and doesn't understand why her being a cheerleader changes so much. Her personality never really alters throughout the book and that's just great because she's one of the few persons in the book who is truly happy with her life and who she is.Read more ›
