Although Max Turner has been cheerleading for less than a year, she is a rising star at TNT Force, an all-star cheer gym in Texas. In just a few months, she has proven her skill level to the coaches and fellow athletes every time she stepped foot inside the gym or on the competition mat.
So, when a new cheer season begin, no one is surprised when Max is placed on a high level senior team. But, Max quickly begins to feel the pressure of her new squad. Faced with learning harder cheerleading stunts, getting to know a team full of athletes older than her, and working with a new coach is a lot to take in. Even for a fast learner like Max. And, as if that is not enough for her to deal with, it quickly becomes clear that someone at the gym is not happy about Max’s spot on the high-level team.
With the heat and stress of summer and hard conditioning pressing down on her, Max is beginning to question if she is really ready to be on a senior team at all. Without her best friends Lexi and Halley on the mat for support, every day of practice is becoming more and more trying for the 13-year-old athlete. Knowing the world will soon be watching when the competition season begins, Max has to decide quickly if she has what it takes to be the cheerleading star everyone is expecting her to be.
