It's about some cheerleaders that form a secret club where they investigate cheaters. Tessa is the one telling the story and she's very different from what most would consider the typical cheerleader. She's smart, gets excellent grades, she doesn't believe in cussing (and uses silly terms, like Strawberry Smoothie, which is a good term. I mean it means good things.), and is totally in love with her boyfriend Aiden. I guess maybe an example of her 'wordage' is in order here. So she broke into a house to steal a sim card from a guys phone and she barely escapes without being found out. After vaulting out the window and landing on the ground she opens her hand and see's the sim card and says 'Strawberry Smoothie' in what I interpreted as a relieved tone. It was actually pretty funny. That's just the one term I remember from the top of my head. I hope it makes sense to you.
This book had some twists and turns. You think you have everything figured out and then your wrong. It pretty much was not predictable to me though I thought the whole time that this story is sooo predictable. WRONG. Nope not predictable.
I would say high school age girls would enjoy this book (ones who read this kind of thing anyway). And there's nothing in it that they don't see everyday on TV or in other books. There is light cussing and there is quite a bit of sexual innuendo, but no details really. I might not want a middle schooler reading it. But seriously, things are much worse even on comedy TV, so it just depends on the kid.
This is a hard one for me to rate. It was a good read. Not really good but not bad either. I don't want to deter anyone from reading it because I honestly think that it's just me and what I normally read is so different. So I'm rating it 3 moons from me. Remember what I said though, if you like this kind of stuff this book could very well be a 4 or 5 star book for you.
