Max Turner is a tomboy through and through. Her favorite activities include hunting, fishing, playing sports, and running around with her neighbors Peter and Kyle. But when Max meets some girls at the local trampoline park she gets introduced to a whole new world. With her dad's encouragement, Max finds herself in a place she never imagined she would be: an all-star cheerleading gym.
TNT Force is one of the best cheerleading gyms in North Texas, and between the glitter, massive hair bows, and over the top dance moves, Max is sure she had no place in the gym. But, as she soon learns, she has skills that even top cheerleaders work years to develop. Will Max tough it out and give cheerleading a chance, or will she ignore her natural talent to stay in her comfort zone?

What did you like best about this story?
I like the Max isn't your "typical" cheerleader. She also isn't doing the kind of cheer most people know about. It make for a fun and unique story
What about Emily Holz’s performance did you like?
She was really believable as Max. I felt like I really was listening to Max talking the whole time!!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Any additional comments?
A great book, a well done audio book, and I can't wait for more!
