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.
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.
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'

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.Read more ›
