Publisher's Summary

Bayport High's Varsity cheer squad is made up of the hottest of the hot. But this A-list is dangerous in more ways than one. The Squad is actually a cover for the most highly trained group of underage government operatives the United States has ever assembled. They have the perfect cover, because, beyond herkeys and highlights, no one expects anything from a cheerleader.

    "Wish there was more to this series"
    Any additional comments?

    I have been a fan of the Alex Rider series for a long time and these books can actually hold their own against those. In fact, they are possibly even better because they have a whole team of characters and so are slightly more realistic. I also love the realism of Toby's normal life.

    "Not your average teen book..."

    and much more enjoyable!

    Although this book is obviously meant for teenagers the pithy group of girls who are both mature and the merest children by turn (realistic!) make it an enthralling read.

    I bought the second straight away-no higher recommendation can I give!

    "Sarcastic, witty and funny, a great listen"

    I enjoyed this book very much and will recommend it and will listen to more of Jennifer Lynn Barnes work.Although I"m not big on high school stories, this is a great exception and was a lot of fun to listen to. It was good clean fun, wihtout being prudish or uptight. It kept a smile on my face and a laugh close at hand while I listened .

    An excellent performance by the reader! Adds a lot!

    The kind of good humor I've been looking for and not found up till now.

    Story
    "Great and Snarky with Fantastic narration"
    What did you love best about The Squad: Perfect Cover?

    Honestly, what I liked best is that I liked it way more than I ever expected to. I bought it purely because of the narrator because she is my favorite, and because it received decent reviews. The idea of a secret agent cheer leading squad seems absolutely ridiculous. And even though the realistic idea of this still is silly, the book managed to make it, maybe not believable but at least very enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare The Squad: Perfect Cover to and why?

    I don't think story wise I could compare it, but the narration, tone, and overall performance I would compare to many of Ronconi's performances of Molly Harper's books. She puts her natural snarkiness and fun into her reading and really pulls you in without you noticing it.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I liked her performance as a whole, the fact that she can sound like a real teenager, not like someone trying to be a teenager, and that she can give each and every cheerleader their own voice is quite impressive. Especially since they are described as almost the same person, she gives each character life, not just the protagonist.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    From snarky to sparkly; a spies ability to be "cheery"


    Any additional comments?

    I would definitely say that buying this book is a great idea and if you are on the fence about it, buy it! You won't be disappointed. This book takes the typical story of turning an outsider into the "it" girl and elevates to a different level where it has a real purpose instead of so the hot guy will date her. Fun, and easy to listen to, but also interesting enough that I've already listened to it a second time just to see what little parts I missed.

    Story
    "Cheerleaders as Spies"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it because it was fun and entertaining. However, it felt like this book was mainly for a younger audience, tweens and teens.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer Lynn Barnes? Why or why not?

    Yes. So far I really enjoy all the books I read by her.


    Have you listened to any of Amanda Ronconi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to Amanda Ronconi and she was a great narrator.


    Did The Squad: Perfect Cover inspire you to do anything?

    No...

    "Don't let the cover steer you away from this audio"
    If you could sum up The Squad: Perfect Cover in three words, what would they be?

    I picked up this audio on the 4.95 special list. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It is a fun book with witty and sarcastic quips that kept me entertained. If an imagine of Stephanie Plum in high school appeals, you will enjoy this audio.
