did not like it

I hated all the characters, except possibly the antagonist. I kept reading because I was curious to see if I was correct about the level of unreliability of the narrator: I was.

There's a team of cheerleaders, in the old version of cheer where you give a few yells and dance moves and that's it. Suddenly they have a new coach, who immediately turns them all into the level of athlete needed to do tricks and to be competitive, who has a 4 year old daughter but is somehow capable of having her team of teenage girls over to drink (and perhaps smoke up, I forget now) every night. None of the cheerleaders have parents, siblings, other friends, romance.

There's a murder and some obsession and none of it works (view spoiler)
