S the last cheerleader to die After her suicide Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer suad No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they lostThat was five years ago Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders But for Monica it’s not that easy She just wants I've enjoyed the author's Prep School Confidential series so I had high hopes for this one I wasn't disappointed It did drag on a little but overall this is an excellent addition to the YA mystery genreThis isn't a fluffy murder mystery despite what its title would imply It deals with some very dark issues Abortion suicide murderIts title and description scream TEEN HORROR MOVIE It's nothing like that No campiness and slapstick hereStill it reads like a YA novel and I don't mean that in a bad way We get the sense that the character is in high school and the people in the book rings true There's not much about cliues no overt stereotypes We get the teenaged attitude without the oh my god I want to strangle the characters NOW feeling It had just the right amount of angst and childishness that teenagers of that age would portrayThe investigative part wasn't outrageous The main character wasn't a fool The book the setting the characters felt realistic and even if the book felt like it was too long I enjoyed reading it

The CheerleadersTo forget Only Monica’s world is starting to unravel There are the letters in her stepdad’s desk an unearthed years old cell phone a strange new friend at school Whatever happened five years ago isn’t over Some people in town know than they’re saying And somehow Monica is at the center of it al This YA mystery really surprised me It was a bit dark with some mature themes and it proved to be one heck of a twisty captivating page turner Five years ago 5 cheerleaders wound up dead in the span of a few months One of them was Jenn Monica's older sister Monica has never believed that her sister's death was a suicide and she is determined to connect the dots and find out what really happened to the Sunnybrook High cheerleaders This one definitely has that suck you in factor I found myself wanting to crack the case as much as Monica did and was coming up with some crazy theories throughout I was right about some things but others completely fooled me and I loved it If you are looking for a fun dark YA mystery I definitely recommend picking up The Cheerleaders
