This story captures the essence of extreme, volatile, confusing teen emotions (and, if we're being real, some adult emotions!). I loved visiting Jenna's globe and found myself very invested in her happiness by the end of the book, despite wincing at the impulsive not good decisions she makes along the way. I especially appreciated the moments where Jenna channels her intensity into bursts of creative expression, either through dance/cheerleading routines or through the creation of an RPG hero with a well-researched back story - her excitement is contagious when we see her geeking out over these things. Jenna's relationship with James is also VERY sweet and I love the method the author modeled enthusiastic consent between these characters in a method that added to the charm of their romance.Full disclosure: I'm acknowledged in this book as one of the author's Patreon supporters, and I am not usually a YA reader, so I probably would not have sought this one out without the private connection to Rae. It's hard for me to keep their work up to other examples of the genre, but it was an engaging read for me, and I'm excited to see more from them!
It doesn’t matter if you experienced high school crushes, cheerleading tryouts, sibling rivalry, whatever. This book covers emotions anyone could relate to via a specific and beautifully written story that flows like a chocolate fountain. I’m not a large reader these days (neck issues and such) but I spent three hours cross-legged and smiling while chewing this book. It is that delicious.
The tone of Team is one of the most authentic I’ve ever read. Everything, from the characters themselves to the method they talked, the situations they were in and the method they reacted to them, was all so genuine and real. Mariah MacCarthy did such an wonderful job bringing us into Jenna’s head and helping us understand not just what she was feeling, but why, which is such an necessary factor that oftentimes gets of my absolute favorite things about this novel was how Jenna wasn’t always a amazing person, and it’s not because she’s inherently bad, but instead, because she’s a flawed human being that doesn’t react to situations in the best method every single time. It doesn’t matter how nice somebody is at the core, teenagers are angsty and those feelings are going to come out. Jenna doesn’t always treat her family well and she lets her emotions control how she responds to things instead of logic and reason. Each time something like this happens though Jenna learns from it and we’re really able to see her develop. Not only are relationships mended by her realizing the mistakes that were made, but she also discovers a lot of self-worth.A huge theme in Team is friendship and not just the positive aspects, but what the fallout is like when something goes wrong. As much as we may wish every friendship to latest forever, the reality is that very few do, and sometimes when it ends it’s incredibly painful. Understanding what went wrong and learning that a lot of times it’s for the best are hard lessons to learn but so important, but learning how to give people second chances is equally important. The method this novel showed both aspects was so relatable and done would honestly be a disservice to not talk about the representation that is shown in Squad. Jenna seems to be questioning her sexuality throughout the book and that was so refreshing to see. Most of the characters I read about seem to have it all figured out, but there are a lot of teens out there that just don’t know yet whom they are attracted to, and that’s okay! We also see queer rep in one of the supporting characters, James, who is a transgender boy. This was a fresh situation for Jenna, and she didn’t obtain everything right all the time, but the method she created conscious efforts to be respectful and accepting was wonderful. There is also so much consent, especially between Jenna and James, and I’ve never seen anything like it. We really need to begin seeing more authors follow MacCarthy when it comes to this subject.Squad is definitely one that I recommend picking up. It focuses on some necessary themes and includes lessons we could all use refreshers on. I really hope Mariah MacCarthy keeps writing because I’m wildly excited to see what they might have in shop for us next.
Rating: 3.5 StarsWhen I first saw the cover of this book, I thought this was going to be a story about cheerleading, but it's really a tale of one girl's struggle, when she loses her "squad".Jenna couldn't figure out when or why it all began, but her teammates were icing her out. Between the in-jokes, the backhanded compliments, and the unanswered text messages, Jenna knew she was now on the outside looking in. All of this was very painful for Jenna, but the worst part was how her long-time best friend, Raejean, abandoned her.I won't lie, Jenna's reaction to all of these changes was FAR from positive. She created a bunch of really questionable decisions, but I was still able to empathize with her, because I had experienced this sort of thing first hand. It hurts, it starts to create you question yourself, and I thought MacCarthy did an perfect job capturing the fear, anxiety, desperation, and insecurities Jenna experienced.I was a small worried about this story, because the first half of the book was kind of dark and bleak, but then Jenna sort of comes to terms with her situation. In an effort to atone for her poor behavior, she cuts herself off from the cheer squad, and that was when she really started to figure out who she was. She began to expand her circle of mates and renewed her relationships with her brother and mother. She created fresh mates and even picked up some fresh interests (LARPing!). It was amazing to see her grow, heal, acknowledge her mistakes, and create an effort to achieve some closure.Overall: An interesting look at fading friendships, getting through tough times, and finding yourself.
SQUAD was a very fast and interesting read! There was a lot to appreciate here from diverse characters, sibling friendships, transitioning mate groups, and even a bit of geek appreciation. What I didn’t love was that it kind of lacked direction in terms of tone and seemed to wander around a bit, and the plot followed suit in some places.Overall, SQUAD is about Jenna and how her life completely changes when her mates begin alienating her, consequently affecting her best friendship and even further so, affecting her position on the cheerleading squad. I appreciated the difficulties that Jenna went through with her best mate and how quickly friendships can change in high school (and college and adulthood). I’ve been in a situation where a “former friend” has dropped nearly all forms of communication for what seems to be no reason so I could see how it could drive you to be a small obsessed with the confusion of it all. I also liked how Jenna finally started to really think about what she wanted (after going through the stages of grief, essentially) and how she treated other people as well. She wasn’t a total victim and she wasn’t totally innocent either. I also liked how even though she quit the cheer squad, she still held onto the fact that she liked dancing and cheering and how much that created her happy. The cliquey group dynamic was something that turned her off so it wasn’t enough to hold the love of cheering to stay on the squad.What really threw me off was that I had no idea what this book was even supposed to be when I started it. The back cover contained some of the text from the beginning and it was a small misleading to begin with a sentence like “I just woke up one morning and forgot how to do everything.” With all the possibilities of YA books out there, it was entirely possible that Jenna literally woke up and forgot how to do everything and this was maybe a sci-fi/paranormal kind of book. I couldn’t tell if it was supposed to be something like that or if it was supposed to be just a contemporary novel. Then there was the Goodreads synopsis which called it a “darkly comic debut novel”, comparing to Mean Girls and Heathers with a splash of Bring it On. I didn’t really feel like it was comic at all. It was nearly entirely serious and I’m not sure how this was supposed to be a funny book. It certainly had its darker moments as Jenna loses her friends, falls into a depression, and explores who she is but I didn’t feel like it was a fun, campy experience like the films mentioned above. These two things really set me up for something totally various and the actual contents of the novel just weren’t what I was e writing style was also a bit hard for me as well. It worked out all right, being a shorter audiobook read (it was only 5+ hours long and I listen at 2x speed so with my pauses to do things here and there, I finished in about three hours) but if it was something longer, I don’t know if I would have stuck with it. Especially in the audiobook ver (which is narrated by the author, Mariah MacCarthy (awesome!)), it felt like one long stream of consciousness. There wasn’t a lot of dialogue in the beginning but more did develop throughout. Maybe if I had been reading a print version, that would have felt a small various BUT since the author narrated the audiobook, I also take the tone as they read it since they’re the person who wrote the book! That’s something I love about “authorators”. I always feel like we’re skipping one interpretation from author to narrator to listener and I obtain a more “straight forward” experience! That being said, I would have loved to see just a bit more development in the writing so it felt a small less like a stream of consciousness.While I enjoyed the overall plot of the book, it seemed to just sort of dart off into various places. There were natural transitions but for some reason it didn’t really seem to flow. I did like the change from cheer team to geek team as Jenna starts to hang out with her brother and his mates and actually goes LARPing with them. It reminded me a lot of a favorite, THE SUMMER I BECAME A NERD by Leah Rae ere was a lot of amazing things within the pages of SQUAD but I still had some problems that kept me from falling into the story. It was a fast read for me but I think stylistically, I just didn’t click with it as much as I had hoped and confusing marketing was a small bit of an problem for me.
I still don't know how to boil my thoughts and feelings about this book into a coherent review. Team tackles a lot of real-world issues, from a serious mate break-up to trying to understand who you are outside of a group who defines who you are. I loved the various kinds of people in this book, from cheerleaders to an absent nna struggles to define who she is outside of cheerleading and her best friend. I can see how their struggles and questioning can support teens in related situations. I struggled when I left color guard to see who I was outside of the sport and that group of people. I also struggled when I stopped being mates with my best mate of 10 years. I could see these related feelings and struggles between my experience and Jenna's.I could also see how relatable her struggle to understand what happened between her and her best mate would be to others and teens. Who iced who out first? Who was responsible for the falling out? Was it her fault? Should she have spoken up about what was bothering her sooner? Who was she outside out her best friend?I struggle with the dark tone of it, however. It seems she is being portrayed as crazy and/or losing her mind. I didn't like that aspect of the book and I don't think mental health is something to play around with. She could have been questioning her whole life without cutting her best friend's hair off and dumping water on people. She seemed to become paranoid and lose all sense of her self-control. This tarnishes the lessons we were to learn from this book and I don't think it fits with the other aspects of her personality. I think the book could've been just as effective, if not more so if this part of the book was taken out or reworked. This isn't a thriller or a horror novel, so I don't really understand the dark tone.Overall, I think it has amazing characterization and a relatable plot for teens, but I can't obtain over the "dark" tone.*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux (BYR) through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.*
This was kind of a book in two parts. In the first half, Jenna is a cheerleader, and a very amazing one; her team is necessary to her and so is doing well in competitions. But at the begin of the fresh school year, Jenna starts to obtain iced out by the other cheerleaders, and she can’t figure out why. She gets a small unhinged with jealousy and ends up doing something to her former best mate that causes enough shame and regret that she drops out of the team. At that point, she’s lost; she has no mates and no sense of identity outside of cheerleading. The story pivots then as her older brother gets her into LARPing, which she discovers a true talent for, and she starts to fall for one of her brother’s friends, James, who happens to be trans. Although the cover and title create the focus of the story appear to be cheerleading, the most interesting parts of the book happen in Jenna’s post-cheer life, when she’s trying to (re)discover herself and how to grow up. A amazing coming-of-age novel with some special ideas.
Based on review copy.I don't know what I was expecting when I requested this book; I think I thought this would be a darker book, but instead we got your classic coming-to-age story. I'm satisfied I read it, but it's not something I would have picked up on my own. The story followed Jenna who was quickly dropped by her cheerleading group and best mate and had to search herself again. There was a trans romance which I enjoyed, but it was also a by-the-numbers story. Jenna was a "popular" girl so she found herself in a hobby that could be categorized as the opposite of popular/trending (LARPing). It's a fast read because it's dialogue heavy. If coming-of-age stories are your jam, I recommend it. Note there is some usage of a trans character's deadname.
Found this book at the bookstore and knew instantly it was for me . Stayed up all night and read this book in one sitting . I laughed , I cried , I had moment of anxiousness. The book took a turn I was not expecting, but could not have similar to something more than this . Sooo satisfied I’ve found this book
