The Cheerleaders: A Dark and Twisty Thriller That Will Leave You Breathless (Paperback)Kara Thomas (author)
The Cheerleaders is Kara Thomas' edge-of-your-seat thriller about an eerie sequence of seemingly unrelated events that leaves five cheerleaders dead.
'Sharp, brilliantly plotted, and totally engrossing' - Karen McManus, author of One of Us Is Lying
There are no more cheerleaders in the town of Sunnybrook.
First there was the car accident - two girls dead after hitting a tree on a rainy night.
Then the murders happened - two girls were killed by the man next door. The police shot him, so no one will ever know why he did it.
Monica's sister was the last cheerleader to die. After her suicide, Sunnybrook High disbanded the cheer squad. No one wanted to be reminded of the girls they'd lost.
That was five years ago. Now the faculty and students at Sunnybrook High want to remember the lost cheerleaders. But for Monica, it's not that easy. After she discovers the letters in her stepdad's desk, unearths an ancient phone, and meets a strange new friend at school, Monica can't just move on.
There are no more cheerleaders in Sunnybrook, but that doesn't mean anyone else is safe.
