    Review quote
    From PUBLISHERS WEEKLY: The Accidental Cheerleader Mimi McCoy. Scholastic, $4.99 paper (176p) ISBN 978-0-439-89056-4 The debut novel in the Candy Apple series introduces two very different 12-year-old best friends: introverted, quick-to-blush Sophie and outgoing, impulsive Kylie. Sophie reluctantly agrees to be Kylie's partner at tryouts for their middle school cheerleading team. Rather predictably, gymnast Sophie makes the squad, but klutzy (if gutsy) Kylie is instead offered the position of team mascot-a costumed mule. Attending practices without Kylie, Sophie initially feels like an outsider amidst the confident, popular and mostly petty other cheerleaders, but gradually gets sucked into their superficial social sphere. The plot takes a melodramatic turn when Sophie is suddenly shunned by her old and new friends after she dances with a star football player on whom Kylie has long had a crush and whom the head cheerleader dated the previous year ("for three weeks"). Despite such contrivances, the tale convincingly conveys the social pressures of middle school, and the price and precariousness of popularity, offering a cheer-worthy blend of fluff and substance. The second Candy Apple title, Laura Dower's The Boy Next Door (ISBN 978-0-439-92929-5), is due out simultaneously. Ages 9-12. (Jan.) Source: Publisher's Weekly, January 1, 2007, p. 51
