Format: Paperback
This book was brilliant, if you don't like vampires you will after reading this. At first I thought it wouldn't be very scary, but the vampire is really creepy. The main character is very much like an average teenager so it is best for an age group of 12-14. The plots are easy to keep up with and are very exciting. Caroline B. Cooney is one of my favourite authors so I jumped at the chance to read it. She makes her books thrilling and exciting, so they keep you interested. I've read the sequels they're as good as this one, but very similar, because they are set in the same town, same school and same house, with the same vampire taking over the lives of who ever dares set him free. The outline of The Cheerleader is that a new family moves into a very creeping house, the teenage girl has no friends and is very unpopular so one night she accidentally lets the vampire loose, he knows how sad she is so he grants the teenager her wish to be popular ... The book really makes you hate the vampire and feel sorry for the unlucky teenager. I really enjoyed this book and its sequels, It's made like vampire books and really changed my original view. Hayley Clarke, 12th October.

The Cheerleader By Caroline B. Cooney 22 Jan. 2002
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Caroline B. Cooney writes ,in The Cheerleader, a thriller about a girl who would do anything to be popular and when she gets the chance she doesn't want to give it up, but does she?
A lonely junior girl would do anything to be popular like the freshman Celeste. Celeste is pretty, has many friends, and is on the cheerleading squad. She agrees to an evil scam to bring Celeste to a vampire she meets in the tower of her house, so then she can be popular like her. She agrees to bring Celeste to the vampire. What will happen? Althea starts getting weird feelings about what he is going to do to Celeste so she can be popular. Will it work or is it just an evil scam?
This book made me realize, be happy with what you have and not to do something crazy to get what you want. If you want something bad enough, just wait. It will come someday!

good book! 14 Jun. 2005
By Bookworm Jessie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is about Althea. She lives in a house that people say is haunted. It is, there is a vampire living in the dark tower of her house. She makes a deal with him that if she brings him people then he will make her popular. She is really happy being popular, but when she realizes what he does to the people she offers him, she feels bad about it. She has a party and asks him to leave her alone but he says she has to give him someone else. She tells him that she will give him a sign to which person he can have, but she accidentally gives him the sign to take her best friend that she was just starting to become friends with again. She decides not to do it anymore and says that she doesnt need him to make her popular anymore and he says ok, see if you can last a day, you do need me to be popular but find it out the hard way.... Althea goes through one day without his powers making her popular and she realizes she really doesnt have any friends and needs him. But to be popular, theres a price to pay, giving him the souls of unsuspecting people, and she just cant stand it much longer. Read the book to find out what she does in the end to solve this problem and live her life without destroying the lives of others.

The Cheerleader 24 Sept. 2000
By Elise A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book kept me on the edge of my seat, but did not make it so I could not go to sleep. Althea is just a girl who is never noticed. When she makes a deal with a vampire she is instantly popular, she also makes the cheerleading squad, to replace the girl she gave to the vampire. She thought it would end there but now the vampire wants another victim. Who will she give and when will it end? As the the story goes on Althea realises that she has to do the vapires every wim. Is it really more the vamires falt than hers? If she had never started it, she wouldn`t have to stop it now.

The Cheerleader~ 1 Mar. 2005
By R. Lidguerre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"She was a nobody. Alone and ignored. She wanted what they had. Althea wanted to be a Cheerleader. Which meant popularity. To be noticed, to have friends, and possibly a boyfriend. She would do anything it takes.."

I thought it was ok, the whole high school cliche seems to be overly done in this though.. Like I don't think it's like this anymore in high school, but I could be wrong ;)

The ending was nice, but it could have tied up some lose ends. Overall it was ok.
