Cheer Up: Love and Pompoms by Crystal Frasier REVIEW

This was ADORABLE!!!!

If you’re looking for something sweet and queer with themes of the real struggles trans youth go through, I highly recommend checking this out! This follows Annie and Bebe, old friends reunited through cheerleading, where Bebe is the team captain and Annie is being forced to participate in order to have an extracurricular. Annie is antisocial and enjoys picking a fight while Bebe struggles to stand up for herself, afraid to come off as an “aggressive” trans person. As the season progresses, Annie and Bebe learn from each other and grow their relationship with each other. It’s a super sweet story that is fluffy while also packing a punch. The art is absolutely gorgeous too!

One of the easiest 5/5 Stars I’ve given!

Thank you to NetGalley for the e-ARC of this book! It comes out August 10, 2021–I recommend pre-ordering it, I think could be the next queer graphic novel!
