Product description


*A Washington Blade Springs Arts 2019 Book List Pick*

"Jenna may not get everything she wants by the end of the book, but what she does get, she works for, and that makes for a satisfying journey. Squad is a short, highly concentrated blast of a book that revels in all the best and worst feelings of high school and offers the reader a charismatic and imperfect character to fall in love with. Jenna certainly won me over, and so did Squad." --NPR

"An openhearted debut that, like Jenna herself, has wonderfully surprising depth." --Booklist

"Plenty of books for young readers take on the subject of overt, aggressive bullying; this novel follows a less traveled and surprisingly substantive theme of a girl whose sense of self, forged in a pressure cooker of high expectations, is challenged in ways that cause her to misread situations and transform, momentarily, into a bully herself." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"An authentic, relatable voice . . . debut novelist MacCarthy pulls off this concoction of topics with aplomb, matter-of-factly introducing Jenna's feelings for James and treating cheer and LARP with equal earnestness. The resolution is satisfyingly realistic . . . an affirming story." --Horn Book

"Upon finishing this book, I realized it was the first cheerleader narrative I have read that shows their lives beyond the glamour, as the featured cheerleaders create meaningful ties with Live Action Role Players (LARPers) and queer culture."--Lithium Magazine

Book Description

High school cheerleader, Jenna, is slowly losing her best friend, Raejean, and the trust of her teammates after an incident at a party. Through miscommunication, misinterpretation, and retaliation the world as she knows it crumbles around her.
