This story was down to earth and you feel it could almost happen. The main character Dakota is a down to earth heroine who does not fight with her parents, she even likes her three year old brother! I was captivated and ignored the rest of the world until I had finished reading, and I would recommend this book as an adult read too. I think I might buy the next in the series just for myself. Apart from being an easy and interesting rear which flowed from page to page, the complete book was error free and the pace was just right. I shall bookmark this author.

You realise you’re dealing with something sinister, as soon as you read the first page of this story. It’s made all the more shocking, when you realise the antagonist is targeting high school kids.
I recognise the importance of being part of the cheerleading team in high school, even though I am not from North America. This story focuses on excellence and the need to belong.
The characters are varied and interesting and the setting has a realistic familiarity, which gives the horror moments greater impact. The insight into the antagonist’s mind set and behaviour is intriguing but gives little away.
Dakota, the story’s main protagonist faces all the usual high school girl problems; a cheating boyfriend, mean girls and the need to achieve the highest accolade of becoming a varsity cheerleader. The sense of danger and menace facing Dakota and her friends’ increases as the story progresses, leading to a climatic ending that both reveals and conceals the true evil that dominates the story.
With a level of suspense and confusion that rivals ‘Pretty Little Liars’, this is an enjoyable read for all ages and I look forward to the next book in the series.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

There aren't many repeat authors I download with my Kindle subscription but Carissa Ann Lynch is an exception. I have read all the Flocksdale Files series and knew this new series was a must.

I am from UK so never involved in the cheerleading scene but Lynch brings it all to life, so I don't feel I missed out on anything. The author has a knack with the descriptive and in Cheerleading Can Be Murder excels at this. This book has suspense and chills that send a shiver down your spine. The narrative keeps you flicking through and the pace is fast making it a quick read. But no matter book 2 is out so I can continue with the series.

An easy to read, enjoyable and entertaining series.
A fast-paced mystery with plenty of twists, suspense and chills.

The author descriptive writing took me back to my school days, the friendships, cliques and betrayals.

The characters are a well-written mix of angst, risk-taking, conflict and hormones... typical and believable teens.

Each book is written from a different cheerleaders point of view, as well from 'The Sociopath'

Omgosh--if you were a cheerleader or student who knew one in high school then this book will take you right back. The book opens with a graphic passage and a great hook (a psychopathic teenager ready to kill) that will stick with you. Thoughts of how death smells mean you may never think of meat without thinking of bodies again. Reading this book is really like a trip down memory lane. It feels authentic, the cliques, the back-stabbing teens, the boredom of certain classes, and waiting for the only thing you've dreamed of for years... making the Varsity Cheerleading Team. I was co-captain of the Varsity Cheerleading Squad and this book took me all the way back. SPOILER ALERT: One of the most powerful scenes, early in the book, is when Dakota is in a bathroom stall and a creepy unknown person, breathing heavily, enters and silently waits for ages (but finally leaves). Like the main character, in that terrifying scene, I got chills. The author has a terrific kinesthetic and sensorial writing style, you will feel what it is like to be in a high school lunchroom (if you didn't attend a traditional high school) or go to a Friday night basketball game. There are fun parts too, romantic chill moments, such as when Dakota makes a new friend and learns that he's on the basketball team. This book is just the right mix of complex and chilling and normal high school shenanigans. One of my favorite parts of the story is Dakota's relationship with her mother. The characters are well-developed and it was fascinating to try and figure out who the psychopath was. The story is nice and twisty. Just like life, there is always something going on. I liked the mix of teens; some girls were more obnoxious, devious, or poised than others.Read more ›

Dakota is starting her freshman year at high school. She is very excited and can't wait to try out for the cheerleading squad. Even though she knows that chances are slim to make the team she is determined to give it her all. Her best friend Sydney and her new friend and neighbor Amanda will be trying out too. Dakota knows that not everyone is very kind when the stakes are high, but she never expected people to be so ruthless in pursuing what they want.

After a week of practicing routines and performing the coach will announce on Monday which girls made it into the team. This year there will also be alternates who will have to fill in when necessary. Dakota is thrilled when she makes the squad and can't wait to start practicing. When she is also being picked as the top in their stunts Dakota can't believe her luck. It turns out that not everybody is happy with the girls who made it into the squad. One by one they are attacked and the safety of the team is at stake. How far is this psycho teenager willing to go and will they find out in time who is bringing danger into the school?

Carissa Ann Lynch writes about high school in a great way. She has put a lot of time and effort in her characters, making them believable teenage girls. The scenes in and around the classes are convincing and it felt like I was truly getting to know these young girls.

Dakota is a strong girl. She has a great bond with her mother and her baby brother. She is also a good friend and she's honest. What I liked about her the most is that she fights for what she believes in and that she doesn't give up on her dreams even though the odds are against her. The thought of a psycho teenager roaming the halls thinking about hurting other people really gave me the creeps.
