Overview

Jenna Watson is a cheerleader. And she wants you to know it's not some Hollywood crap: they are not every guy's fantasy. They are not the "mean girls" of Marsen High School. They're literally just human females trying to live their lives and do a perfect toe touch. And their team is at the top of their game. They're a family.

But all that changes when Jenna's best friend stops talking to her. Suddenly, she's not getting invited out with the rest of the quad. She's always a step behind. And she has no idea why.

While grappling with post-cheer life, Jenna explores things she never allowed herself to like, including LARPing (live action role playing) and a relationship with a trans guy that feels a lot like love.

When Jenna loses the sport and the friends she's always loved, she has to ask herself: What else is left?
