Jodie (jodiemill) Another one I can't remember the author or titles of the books. Cheerleader series (also like Sweet Valley High). I remember the one main girl had a crush on a guy who was trashman & she was embarassed by him because she was a popular cheerleader.

I hate it when I can't remember these titles.

Cindy (wanna_read_all_the_books) I think this is the Cheerleader series by Caroline B. Cooney and other authors but I'm not sure. The first book was called Trying Out. I found them on Amazon.

Zing (jeniferholly) | 23 comments The Cheerleader series by Cooney was YA horror, and, if I remember correctly, had something to do with a vampire. I read so much Cooney as a kid...

Go here for the Good Reads listing

Cathy The Cheerleader by Ruth Doan MacDougall?? I didn't see the first post looking for a book on cheerleaders. This book was published in 1973, so it is older. It has several sequels but I don't know the names, well the next one was called "Snowy" but anyway. Any help?

Cindy (wanna_read_all_the_books) The Cheerleader series by RL Stine was YA horror and had to do with a vampire, not the Cooney series.

Zing (jeniferholly) | 23 comments Cindy -

I'm sorry, but that is not correct. It was the Cooney books that had to do with the Vampire.

From a reader review on Amazon.com:

"This book is about Althea. She lives in a house that people say is haunted. It is, there is a vampire living in the dark tower of her house. She makes a deal with him that if she brings him people then he will make her popular."

There are many more reader reviews and summaries on the Amazon page for this book, if you would like to take a look - http://www.amazon.com/Cheerleader-Point-Thriller-Caroline-Cooney/dp/059044316X

Summer | 41 comments You both are correct! (At least partially...)

The Cheerleader is a Y/A thriller published in 1996. There was also a series similar to Sweet Valley High called Cheerleaders. The first book, Trying Out, was published in 1986. Both were written by Caroline B. Cooney.

I think 1980s series is the one being searched for in this thread.

Jodie (jodiemill) no, this wasn't the series I was looking for. they weren't about vampires. It was sort of like Sweet Valley High in their innocence. I just can't remember the names.

Summer | 41 comments I read at least the first book in each series you asked about, but I didn't have a clear memory of either. I'm so glad the link helped.

For older series, I've used:
and the Library of Congress is a good reference if you have a partial title/author:
