Críticas

Christina is starting middle school. She and her bestie decide that the way to really fit in is to become cheerleaders. They make the cut to the performance for the whole 7th grade and from there students vote on the top 8. Christina has a loving family, strong community, as a biracial Thai and white kid she faces racial harassment by some of her classmates but many other people are super supportive.
A story of friendship, family, getting out of your comfort zone, and finding your niche.
