FF coming of age, female QB and cheerleader high school romance- Yes please!
See synopsis below!
I just loved Jack’s character but hated that no one on her new team or school was supporting her (but sounds about right). She was such a kickass player and was helping them win games and they just kept giving credit to other reasons. I’m sure there are so many accomplished female athletes for millennia that have had to deal with fragile male egos and homophobic females. Ugh I’m just so tired of that! I wanted to cheer for her!! I would have def been in that cheering section in high school!
It seemed these characters families for the most part were ok it was their community and school that they didn’t feel comfortable with or they didn’t trust to be ok and some were douches cause you know high school. But there are always going to be allies ones that are vocal and ones that will show up in your friend group even when some might disappoint you.
Amber the cheerleader was on track to be the next cheer captain but wasn’t counting on Jack. I loved how she kept trying to get her involved but still it’s so hard to see when your life long friends are just being cruel. Her grand gesture though was cheertastic!
I just loved the high school routine, the drama, the secret romances, the practice, cheer groups, even the underhandedness of the petty. With which that victory felt even sweeter.
❓ Did you go to football games in high school?
I went every Friday just to walk the stadium to see who was there. I loved the band music and the cheering.
Thank you stmartinspress and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
In this sweet and funny new f/f romance from the author of Cool for the Summer, a cheerleader and the school’s newest quarterback are playing to win, but might lose their hearts in the process.
Amber McCloud’s dream is to become cheer captain at the end of the year, but it’s an extra-tall order to be joyful and spirited when the quarterback of your team has been killed in a car accident. For both the team and the squad, watching Robbie get replaced by newcomer Jack Walsh is brutal. And when it turns out Jack is actually short for Jaclyn, all hell breaks loose.
The players refuse to be led by a girl, the cheerleaders are mad about the changes to their traditions, and the fact that Robbie’s been not only replaced but outshined by a QB who wears a sports bra has more than a few Atherton Alligators in a rage. Amber tries for some semblance of unity, but it quickly becomes clear that she’s only got a future on the squad and with her friends if she helps them take Jack down.
Just one problem: Amber and Jack are falling for each other, and if Amber can’t stand up for Jack and figure out how to get everyone to fall in line, her dream may come at the cost of her heart.
Dahlia Adler’s Home Field Advantage is a sparkling romance about fighting for what – or who – you truly want.
