Cheer by Leslie A. Gordon @LAGordonWriter

Cheer: A Novel

What happens when a family suffers a tragedy and everyone blames themselves?

The Dahl family is reeling from an unspeakable loss. Jenny channels her grief – and secret guilt – into an obsession with getting pregnant. Teenager Ella, a competitive high school cheerleader, seeks to atone by being the perfect adolescent for her parents, numbing her pain in secret. Ethan, a pilot, is on a singular mission to preserve what’s left of his family – to little success.

Everything changes, though, when Ella makes a shocking decision.

An unforgettable story of redemption and hope, set in idyllic and quirky Marin County, California, Cheer is a rich exploration of what it means to forgive and about discovering unexpected bonds within one’s own family. Told from three perspectives, this novel is for anyone who has been a mother or a daughter. Perfect for book clubs, the Kindle edition concludes with questions for discussion.
