The Accidental Cheerleader, by Mimi McCoy. Genre: Realistic fiction. The Accidental Cheerleader is about two seventh grade girls and also best friends Kylie and Sophie who are going back to school and they can’t wait. Kylie has a wild side, while Sophie is really shy and thoughtful, but they make a great team together. But Kylie wants to fit in with the popular girls, so she signs her and Sophie for the cheerleading team. But Sophie is the one who made it and Kylie didn’t. Then they end up fighting and saying that they aren’t friends anymore. Sophie then feels really torn between her best friend and doesn’t know what to do now. I can relate to Sophie because we are both shy and my best friend is also wild like Kylie. I also understand that Sophie gets really sad when her and Kylie fight and she starts to over think too much and tries to figure out what is the best thing to do. It makes me think about me and my best friend when we fight sometimes too just like them. I get really sad and I start to over think too just like Sophie.I love this book because of the drama and feelings of it. I didn’t expect to like a book called Accidental Cheerleader because I don’t really like those kinds of things like all that drama, but it turns out that I like really liked it! And I was amazed on how Sophie and Kylie became stronger characters and solve everything out together. Although I got to say some of their actions were unexpected and really surprising because based on their character. My favorite part is when they solve everything all out and became friends again. My least favorite part is when they were fighting and stop becoming friends. It is really sad when friends end up fighting and stop talking to each other. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves drama, feelings, middle school and realistic fiction. This is a fantastic book I couldn’t let it down so on a rating system I would give The Accidental Cheerleader a 4/5.

The Accidental Cheerleader 101

The Accidental Cheerleader is a great book for kids 7+. There is some flirting and girls get really excited about some boys, but other than that, the book is awesome. The characters are good role models and present positive messages. Thanks for reading! :)

Not bad, but not good

Honestly. This book I read because I was a cheerleader and I wanted to read a book that could follow up my interest. I read it. I actually had to perform a play about the book that we were reading in english class about this book one day with my best friend. It is not bad but is still not the best. I don't really think that anything stands out. No bad content-no good content. But if your little cheerleader wants to read it go ahead and let her. It is a good reading experience.

'A little to easy for a thirtheen year old'

This book was a bit to easy for me because it had very little new vocab. On the upside I think most all girls can relate to it because it deals with fitting in with the 'in' crowd,boy crushes, and being yourself. I would recomend this book to girls at the age of 11 to 13.

It's in my Candy Apple Collection Volume 1!

I just finished reading this book, and let me tell you it was amazing! I can really understand where Sophie is coming from becuase I had a simmilar thing happen to me. It was such a good book, I wish I could read it again! But sadly, it's over. It's short, sweet, and if you don't believe me, then read it for yourself! I highly reccomend it!
