Candy Apple is a fresh, fun take on fiction for girls: a new line with pep and pizzazz targeted at the solid middle-grade reader.

When shy Sophie's best friend, Kylie, signs them both up for cheerleading tryouts, it's Sophie who lands in the spotlight - and Kylie ends up on the sidelines. Now Kylie is stuck playing mascot, and she doesn't exactly get along with Sophie's new friends on the squad.

Things really spin out of control right before the big game, and Sophie has to choose sides. Can the girls rediscover how to root for each other before the clock runs out on their friendship?

Review: The Accidental Cheerleader (Candy Apple #1)

User Review  - Rebecca McNutt - Goodreads

An okay book for reluctant readers, but it has no imagery, annoying and lifeless characters, an unoriginal plot and limited vocabulary. Just because the cover is glittery and shiny, doesn't mean the text is any good. :( Read full review
