�I am so curious to know what the future holds for this family. You will have to read the book to know what I mean.� Misfortune of Knowing (book blogger)

What happens when a family suffers a tragedy and everyone blames themselves?

The Dahl family is reeling from an unspeakable loss. Jenny channels her grief � and secret guilt � into an obsession. Teenager Ella, a competitive high school cheerleader, seeks to atone by being the perfect adolescent for her parents, numbing her pain in secret. Ethan, a pilot, is on a singular mission to preserve what�s left of his family � to little success.

Everything changes, though, when Ella makes a shocking decision.

An unforgettable story of redemption and hope, set in idyllic and quirky Marin County, California, Cheer is a rich exploration of a family's resilience in the wake of betrayal and tragedy. Told from three perspectives, this novel is for anyone who has been a mother or a daughter. Perfect for book clubs, Cheer concludes with questions for discussion.

This emotionally riveting debut establishes longtime journalist Leslie A. Gordon as a novelist to follow.
