In this beautifully written novel, thirteen-year-old Lillie is uprooted from her home in Iowa and sent to a new school in California. She's the new girl, and the only one not from California. She quickly learns that being the new kid is hard, and that the other kids don't care that she's new. But Lillie has a secret: she's a cheerleader. And when she finds out that the school doesn't have a cheerleading team, she decides to start one. With the help of her friends, Lillie becomes the captain of her school's cheerleading team and learns to be proud of her roots, her new home, and her new team.; 8vo ; FSA.
