*A Barnes & Noble Teen Blog's Most Anticipated LGBTQAP YA Book of 2019*
Jenna Watson is a cheerleader. And she wants you to know it's not some Hollywood crap: they are not every guy's fantasy. They are not the “mean girls” of Marsen High School. They're literally just human females trying to live their lives and do a perfect toe touch. And their team is at the top of their game. They're a family.
But all that changes when Jenna's best friend stops talking to her. Suddenly, she's not getting invited out with the rest of the quad. She's always a step behind. And she has no idea why.
While grappling with post-cheer life, Jenna explores things she never allowed herself to like, including LARPing (live action role playing) and a relationship with a trans guy that feels a lot like love.
When Jenna loses the sport and the friends she's always loved, she has to ask herself: What else is left?

"In this contemporary young adult audiobook, the listener meets Jenna, a high school cheerleader. When an unexpected falling out with her best friend leaves Jenna on the outside of their once tight-knit team, her life changes dramatically. While author-narrator Mariah MacCarthy maintains an even pace throughout their narration, they fail to elicit much sympathy for Jenna. With little distinction between most of the characters in this dialogue-heavy audiobook, there's often confusion as to who is speaking. The only character who consistently has a distinct accent, a first-generation Polish-American student, is not believably portrayed. Overall, a lackluster performance.
