They tear ligaments, blacken eyes, and crash headfirst into hard floors. They spend hours at practice, drawing both admiration and ridicule for their efforts. They've won nine national championships, and endured heartbreaking losses. And they do it -- almost always -- with a smile. They are the Greenup County High cheerleading team, known to ESPN viewers as fierce athletic competitors and in northeastern Kentucky as full-fledged celebrities. Now, an award-winning journalist, James McElroy, gives us an insider's look at a squad of unlikely teenage heroines who are taking center court and raising a cheer for themselves.

User Review  - Heather - Goodreads

Chearleader's aren't my thing, but I read this out loud to my family, and we couldn't put it down. The writting is so compelling, in fact I've had this book used as an example of how to write good non-fiction in a college course. You'll never look at pom-poms the same again. Read full review
