Behind every squad, there's a story. Welcome back to the world of high school cheerleading.
Fresh from the excitement of Regionals, the Northside High JV cheerleaders have set their sights on the prize -- Nationals. But even the most devoted Timberwolves can't eat, sleep, and breathe cheer. Kate's distracted by her new boy-slash-friend, and Devin's dealing with her own long-distance relationship. Emily is overscheduled as usual, and Chloe has taken an interest in community service, volunteering at a local organization that helps families facing tough times. When Chloe discovers that one of their own needs help, can the squad rally to support their teammate?
Book 2 in the Varsity series has more best-friend drama, boy trouble, and, of course, sideline spirit!

Editorial Reviews

Voya Reviews, April 2014 (Vol. 36, No. 1) - Rachel Wadham
The Northside High Junior Varsity cheerleaders are getting ready to compete at Nationals, but things keep getting in the way. Devin is dealing with feelings for a new boy while trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with her old boyfriend. Emily is conflicted when the band she sings with gets the chance to sign a recording contract. Chloe is happy volunteering for a charity until she finds out that one of the cheerleader’s families is in great need. Kate is struggling to deal with her jealousy when another girl shows a lot of interest in her boyfriend. Even with the distractions, the girls band together to make a fine showing at their competition and to resolve all their problems. Continuing the saga of the Northside cheerleaders that began in Game On (Little Brown, 2013), Spring presents a lighthearted view of high school that will certainly be entertaining for girl readers who enjoy sports-based series books. Trying to stay outside of expected stereotypes, Spring brings some complexity to the characters although the pacing does not leave much room for depth. Despite the freshman-aged protagonists, this book’s peppy style and upbeat tone feels most suited to a much younger audience of pre-teens. For these readers the excessive use of exclamation points and the fast and easy resolutions to all the problems will most likely add to their enjoyment, despite the fact that these and other devices tend to degrade the overall literary quality. Reviewer: Rachel Wadham; Ages 11 to 15.
