    Shy little Sophie Smith and her best friend in the whole world Kylie are about to take on 7th grade. Kylie being incredibly outgoing, friendly, and loud (especially with her electric green eyes and blonde curls) is very "striking," as some might say. Whereas Sophie is easily embarrassed, quiet, sweet and sentimental, with her brown, shoulder-length hair she is quite, well... average. But when Kylie signs them both up for cheerleading tryouts, Sophie's world is turned upside down in a back handspring Shy little Sophie Smith and her best friend in the whole world Kylie are about to take on 7th grade. Kylie being incredibly outgoing, friendly, and loud (especially with her electric green eyes and blonde curls) is very "striking," as some might say. Whereas Sophie is easily embarrassed, quiet, sweet and sentimental, with her brown, shoulder-length hair she is quite, well... average. But when Kylie signs them both up for cheerleading tryouts, Sophie's world is turned upside down in a back handspring sort of way. All of a sudden, Sophie is in the spotlight when she makes the team. But who do you think didn't? Kylie. And now Kylie is stuck as the school mascot, angrily insulting the cheerleaders while Sophie is trying to balance two different life's, as it seems: being Kylie's BFF and being a cheerleader. But with new friends like Kiesha Rays (aka the most popular girl in the 8th grade! Actually, make that the whole school!), Sophie has forgotten about Kylie. And what about her possible first crush? He no longer seems like such a huge deal... until he and Kylie start ignoring her. Why?! What has Sophie of all people done wrong?! And when Kylie is angry enough to ruin the cheerleaders once and for all... what will happen to a friendship that once meant everything? Will Sophie and Kylie ever be friends again? The Accidental Cheerleader was a sweet short story about the meaning of friendship, kindness, and staying true to who you are. This was my second time reading this book, and I have to say, it was just as good as the first time! I could relate this book to Always Abigail, because they both have similar themes, and, although I don't have a book review, I highly recommend reading Always Abigail too! When reading The Accidental Cheerleader, I felt angry at characters, but happy at what they had become. The Accidental Cheerleader is full of dynamic characters and even a few static that you might pick up along the way. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a friendship tale with a happy ending! Happy reading!

    I think that this is a pretty good book for preteens and tweens. It is about Sophie and Kylie who are best friends. Kylie is really excited about cheerleaser tryouts and she signs both of them up. Sophie is the one who ends up getting the spot on the team and she makes new cheerleader friends. Should she choose between them? The Candy Apple series is fun and exciting. The only bad thing is that the books are extremely short and you get done with them in one day.

    I really enjoyed the book and finished it in one day, but I didn't like how Kylie was so drama-filled in the beginning because she didn't make the cheerleading squad, she still was the mascot and she could have been proud of her friend.

    This was a book that I grabbed off of a shelf in the library and read it in under 45 mins. It was enjoyable and I would recommend it to the group of girls around 8, 9, 10.

    Okay, so I read this book awhile ago, back when I didn't actually know what was going to happen. I like how the characters aren't a cliche. I mean, this probably sounds really shallow, but in most chick-lit books like these the "mean", "popular" character is blonde. I'M JUST SAYIN'. I like how each character has their own distinct personality. I did notice that a lot of them have "cutesy" names. Actually in the Candy Apple series in general, a lot of people have cutesy names.

    This book was one of ny favoites when I was younger. Sophie and Kylie are two best friends that are pretty much inseperable. Kylie really wants to do cheerleading but can't get Sophie to do it with her. Finally Sophi agrees, thinking there is no way she could make the team. It turns out that Sophie makes it along with Kylie-who is the mascot. This places hard feelings between the two friends and the drama begins!

    Did sophie want to be a cheerleader, no way. She went to try out with her best friend Kylie and ended up making the team. She went from being shy and only 3 friends, to being miss popular. She was working up the courage to tell her best guy friend, how she felt about him and it's all ruined thanks to cheerleading. Her grades drop, she tries to fit in, her parents trust is fading, and her mega crush. What will Sophie do to work things out? Read and you willbe in shocked at the ending.

    This is a good book if you like to read sbout cheerleading. THere are these two girls who try out for the cheer team to see if they could make it. But only one of them gets on the team and the other gets put as the mascot. As the year goes on the cheerleader girl is very popular with the other cheeleader and the girl who is the mascot gets jealous. So the big question is does their friendship stay or leave. Read this book to find out.

    I really liked this book when I first read it. I was 14 years old, so you can imagine how I was excited to finish it. It's kind of lame thinking about it now, but funny though how I loved this book back then. I won't mind going through it again to remember how I felt and how I used to act in certain events when reading this book.

    This book was pretty good. I reminded you to always think before you say and think about your actions. It's a great story that relates to all friendships and uses great detail! I love the theme to it and you can really tell that the author did a good job on getting you to think about the character traits for each character. If you like realistic-fiction books, you will really enjoy this one!

    Great book for the tweens. About two friends who tries out for cheerleading and the one that didn't want to be a cheerleader makes the squad. The glamour of cheerleading seperate the friendship. I have read the complaints about not being "diverse" enough, but I think this happens in every school. Cute girly story.

Anywho, this book was very meh. Not much to it--the classic "girl-has-friend, girl-obliviously-chooses-popularity-over-friend, girl-loses-friend, girl-gets-friend-back-through-an-act-of-selfless-friendship-nonsense" type, you know--so it took me all but a few hours to get through, and there wasn't a lot of emotional attachment. I've read it once before, too, so there's that. The characters were obviously trying to get fleshed out, but ended up as nothing more than cardboard cut-outs with personality traits written on them in bright red Sharpie. The typical ones, such as: "SHY GIRL, MAIN CHARACTER," "OUTGOING GIRL, BEST FRIEND," "BOY 1 TO HAVE CRUSH ON," "BOY 2 TO HAVE CRUSH ON, POPULAR," "MEAN POPULAR GIRLS, IN CHEERLEADER CLIQUE." Yeah. The plot was trying hard. Really, it was. It had cerain decent elements, certain characters I liked, certain aspects that were alright. But it was also lame and perdictable, either taking inspiration from other YA Realism novels or outright copying. A pertinent idea that was poorly concretized. To sum it up: Would not read again. Is boring. Will be gotten rid of.

    I really liked this book. Definitely a YA book for kids in sixth-eighth grade. I particularly liked Sophie one of the main characters, mainly because I was her at one point in my life. She's shy, really determined towards what she starts and loves her best friend but is responsible. I was never as athletic as her though. In this book Sophie and Kylie sign up for cheerleading but only Sophie makes it in.

In this book Sophie and Kylie sign up for cheerleading but only Sophie makes it in. Kylie being the one in the clique who loves attention is bummed and is stuck being the mascot. Sophie is more upset by this news because it means they won't be together like they normally are. Like normal girls around this age she becomes influenced by the popular cheerleaders and slowly stops talking/hanging out with Kylie who immediately notices the slack and hangs out with her crush Joel. Between almost boyfriend problems, clique issues and learning people aren't who they portray themselves as. Sophie and Kylie learn a lot just in the first few months together in their new year. One of the major aspects I loved in this book that I wish books like this would always be like is the fact that............. Are you ready for this?................I wasn't, are you sure?...............................There might be a couple spoilers...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................HERE GOES DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!!!!!!!!!!! Everything about this book is believable, between the character personalities and the struggles they go through. I mean when Kylie and Sophie are fighting in the locker room after the game, Kylie has trouble trying to (storm out) because of all the stuff that she has for being a mascot. I mean really who storms out in real life and it be perfect? But the fact that even though they were fighting Sophie still helps her pick up all her stuff and Kylie tells her about how her mascara is running just shows the real friendship most girls have with their long time friends. I also loved how Sophie becomes friends with a guy in the book, most of the time guys just want to date the main character but their relationship was strictly a friendship. You don't see that in books lately. She does have a love interest throughout the book but they don't end up together merely because they have to work back to the flirtationship they had before she became a cheerleader and changed. Can I also say how much I loved the coach for the cheerleaders when she told Keisha (The w-itchy popular girl)that she had a big mouth? Much love to her, I had a teacher who called out the main wench and I loved that teacher sooo much. A must read for children entering middle school, hoping it'll teach them the lesson this book provides early on before learning it the hard way and not being able to fix the broken tether to her friend.

    This is the first book from Candy Apple publishers, which promotes teen fiction that's caramel-sweet and probably not good for you. This one deals with cheerleading,a subject which breaks my heart since a lot of girls will get hurt both from the physical stunts involved AND from the sick 40-something males who think lewd thoughts of preteens in cheerleader costumes. It saddens me further that Candy Apple chooses to glorify this activity instead of showing it as hurtful to young girls.

It saddens me further that Candy Apple chooses to glorify this activity instead of showing it as hurtful to young girls. The plot, tho', concerns us and goes as follows: Sophie and Kylie are best friends. Kylie is outgoing and stylish. Sophie:not so much. Both are 12, both attend the Meridian Middle School, and now Kylie has pushed the recalcitrant Sophie into trying out for the cheerleading squad. Everyone is shocked when Sophie becomes successful at cheerleading, even Sophie herself, who doesn't want the glory or the spotlight. Now Sophie is the popular it-girl while Kylie is sidelined as a mule mascot. What an ASS...oops, I mean, donkey? I joke like this to show how insecure I am at the issue of preteens treated as sex kittens. (Perfect examples: Bella Thorne and Hailee Steinfeld, to name a few.) Lots of girls out there might try cheerleading as an ocupation or as an activity at school football. But me? I wouldn't recommend it. Neither would I recommend this book for kids. Or Candy Apple, either.

    My guilty pleasure. I read this since my little sister got really into the candy apple books and I read the whole thing in one sitting (it's pretty short, but it's also really good). It's the kind of book that after you've had a long day and you just want to enjoy a story. It's a great story about friendship and growing up and how life changes. Recommended for ages 11-15 or anyone who just wants a fun read.
