Summary: Getting on the cheerleading squad is hard enough without a psycho on the loose...

For Harrow High freshman Dakota Densford, life should be easy. All she has to worry about is talking to cute boys and remembering her locker combination. But when cheerleading tryouts draw near, she learns the cards are stacked against her—spots on the varsity team are limited. Dakota faces her competition head-on, but when her life is threatened, that takes the competition to a whole new level.

High school is never easy, and freshman year is off to a rough start…

Between Dakota’s uniform being ripped up and masked vandals trashing another girl’s house, everyone is suspect. To complicate matters further, Dakota has a thing for Andy McGraw, but she finds him locking lips with another girl.

The harassment continues, and when Dakota finds suspicious flyers inside her best friend’s locker, she doesn’t know what to think. The principal’s unfeeling, overachiever daughter, Brittani Barlow, will do anything to secure her place on the team. But Dakota’s neighbor, on the other hand, definitely fits the profile of a sociopath.

Cheerleading has become a game of life or death.

Lupe's Review

I don't remember the last time I have read a last horror/suspenseful book I've read but wow I should start reading this genre again! Dakota Densford is our main character and she wa ts to try out for the cheerleading team. Sadly, there are only 4 spots available and 7 people are trying out. As the trials go on, strange things start happening and that's when the story got REALLY interesting. I was not able to put this book down because I was determined to figure out who the sociopath was but I was actually stumped; I was not able to figure who it was! Needless to say, the book ended with a cliffhanger and I want to read the second book already just to know what happens next and who the sociopath is!

The author's writing is amazing and she wrote this book beautifully because I felt like I was actually there. It was very descriptive and I was creeped out at times that I had to double check the locks on all of the doors in my house. I get really affected when I read these sort of books and it's probably why I stopped reading this genre. I was really on the edge of my seat the whole time because the scenes were really vivid and beautifully written. Dakota really grew on me as I was reading and and she grew as a character as well. There is a bit of romance woven into the story but wasn't the main focus. I would highly suggest you read this book if you love a good suspenseful story!

About the Author

Besides my family, my greatest love in life is books. Reading them, writing them, holding them, smelling them... well, you get the idea. I've always loved to read and never considered myself a "writer" until a few years ago when I couldn't find a book to read and decided to try writing my own story. With a background in psychology, I've always been a little obsessed with the darker areas of the mind and social problems so I try to channel all of that into my writing. I'm the author of the Flocksdale Files trilogy, the Horror High Series, Grayson's Ridge, and This Is Not About Love. I reside in Floyds Knobs, Indiana with my husband, children, and massive collection of books.
