Abstract:

Think cheerleading is just pom-poms, "gimme an 'R, '" and pleated skirts? Not any more. College cheerleaders are extreme athletes who fly thirty feet in the air, build pyramids in which a single slip can send ten people crashing to the ground, and compete in National Championships that are won by hundredths of a point. These are people who risk horrifying injuries on a daily basis, battle demons like eating disorders and steroid use, and form intense bonds, and this book is a year-long odyssey into their universe, following three squads from tryouts to Nationals.--From publisher description.
