The Tryout

When cheerleading tryouts are announced, Christina and her best friend, Megan, literally jump at the chance to join the squad. As two of the only kids of color in the school, they have always yearned to fit in ― and faced racist comments from the other kids. The middle school cheerleaders are popular and accepted by everyone; being cheerleaders could change everything.

But will the girls survive the terrifying tryouts, with their whole grade watching — and voting on who gets to make the team? And will their friendship withstand the pressures of competition? Stand tall; be loud; game face on! Hilarious and highly relatable, this pitch perfect graphic memoir about courage, competition, friendship, and belonging by two-time Newbery Honoree Christina Soontornvat and shining new talent Joanna Cacao will make you laugh, cry, and cheer!

Description

"This superlative graphic memoir is a funny, relatable, and genuine story of friendship and belonging. Christina struggles with identity in many areas of her life, for example, can she be both Buddhist and Presbyterian? The jokes, daydreams, and quips are delightful without overshadowing or diminishing the impact of her experiences with racism and exclusion.... A funny, painfully honest look at a middle schooler finding her way." — Kirkus Reviews
