Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennie DeGenaro
Chelsea, the book's narrator, has many friends among the cheerleaders, football team and her peers. Her sister Adrian, two years younger, is jealous. She wears black clothing and paints her nails with black polish; her appearance does not help her fit in. The girls' mother is a single parent and depends on Chelsea to help keep an eye on Adrian. Tension between the girls heightens when Chelsea decides she does not like Adrian's "loser" boyfriend. After a bit of sparring, Chelsea enters a talent contest in hopes of winning over Adrian's boyfriend. Unbeknownst to Chelsea, Adrian pulls some dirty tricks on her back-up singers, almost ruining her chances in the contest. As the girls' conflict escalates, Adrian turns to an unlikely ally for help. But whose help does she really need? There are many interesting ups and downs in this book, and the ending is sure to please its readers.
School Library Journal

Gr 7-10- Chelsea, 17, is a popular cheerleader. Her sister, Adrian, 15, is a Goth who resents the attention her sibling gets. Adrian's boyfriend is the rock star of their high school, and he's taken on his girlfriend's grudge. Unfortunately for Chelsea, his entire repertoire consists of belittling her and her cheerleading compadres with songs he writes such as "Dangerously Blonde." After her routine at the all-school pep assembly is sabotaged by such a performance, Chelsea attempts to get even by outshining him in the national High School Idol show to be televised from their town. The plot grows more complicated as Chelsea finds herself smitten with a mysterious college student. Not high literature, but a fun addition to chick-lit collections.-Leah Krippner, Harlem High School, Machesney Park, IL

Chelsea's school year has taken a turn for the worse. After being dumped by her boyfriend and humiliated at the pep assembly by her younger sister's boyfriend, Rick, she's just concentrating on avoiding any other major embarrassments. That's when Rick and his band debut their new album, complete with a whole set of songs bashing cheerleaders. Chelsea's humiliation has reached a whole new level now that everyone is walking down the halls singing the words to -Dangerously Blonde. It's time to make Rick pay. All he wants is to win the High School Idol audition, so he can be on his way to rock star fame and fortune. But with the help of her best friends, Aubrie and Samantha, Chelsea is going to steal his victory right out from under him. The characters from All's Fair in Love, War and High School are back, only this time it's payback. Having the same characters as All's Fair in Love, War, and High School, Revenge of the Cheerleaders deals with Chelsea dealing with some senior year drama which consists of her rocky relationship with her younger sister (Adrian) and her sis's emo boyfriend (Rick). Rick's band's popularity is taking off with his catchy, but mocking songs about cheerleaders - including Chelsea in particular. So, what's the girls to do? Beat him at his own game and win the local musical idol competition at their high school. Rallison's book are just pure fun. Cute & Cheery. Easy to read and full of humor. Very realistic, but enough silly actions to make it all blend smoothly. She also creates characters that you just hate at the beginning but near the end, flip feelings toward. Plus it was nice catching up with Samantha and Logan again from the previous book. Likes: The hunting reference for looking for guys and Chelsea & Tanner's first couple of meet-ups. Dislikes: "Bad boys have a certain attraction, but they grow up to be bad men, and we all know where that leads." I felt the father's alcoholism wasn't fully addressed, but I guess that would take away from the cheeriness of the story.

Technically I would give this 2.5 not 2, but they don't have a button for that.

After I finished All's Fair In Love, War and High School I was really excited to read Revenge of the Cheerleaders, but in the end I was disappointed. First of there was a distinct lack of revenge given the title. I did not like her love interest, I thought he was dull and flat (before I read it I thought that she was going to get together with Rick, which I would have prefered). I thought that Chelsea was too self absorbed, when her friends were having problems she only thought about how that affected her. It really bothered me when she was trying to boost Molly and Polly's self esteem and the first thing she did was tell them flat out that they dressed badly and it was no wonder people teased them, and they just took it.

In spite of all of this, it wasn't a bad book, just disappointing, especially given that I really enjoyed All's Fair... It's a really quick read, so even if you don't like it, you only lost a day or so. I hope that in the future there are more Pullman High books. I'd like to find out what happens to Aubrie and Rachel (hopefully the books are closer to All's Fair than Revenge).

Chelsea is having kind of a difficult time with her social life, even though she is a popular cheerleader! She was just humiliated by her younger sister's boyfriend, Rick, in front of the entire school, and her boyfriend just dumped her! Not the life that you would expect of a cheerleader, right? That's why I loved this book so much!

Rick thinks that he is going to become a rock star in their school's High School Idol competition by singing a song bashing cheerleaders. But would any girl let a guy get away with that kind of humiliation? I don't think so!

So what is Chelsea going to do about her single status? And her cheerleading-bashing rival in the Idol competition? Read REVENGE OF THE CHEERLEADERS, the sequel to ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE, WAR, AND HIGH SCHOOL, to find out!

What I really liked about this book is how realistic and funny these high school characters are. This author writes like she's still in high school! And I love that the "popular" girl has so many issues -- Chelsea seems like she would fit right in at my school!
