This was a f**ked up story. There were so many things happening that are horrifically wrong. I get that this is fiction, it still felt wrong reading some of these scenes.

About halfway through this book, I contemplated not finishing it. The pace had slowed and there wasn't a lot happening. The second half picked up and had a lot of twists and turns that I did not anticipate. I liked the ending and I am glad I did not give up on the story.

This is not my favorite Megan Abbott book and I think it is because I don't find the sport of cheer very exciting. The story itself was good, I just found all of the cheer information distracting.
