The Naughty List by Suzanne Young

Title: The Naughty List
Author: Suzanne Young
Published: February 2010
Synopsis from goodreads:
As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn’t enough responsibility!

Tessa Crimson’s the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad–turned–spy society dedicated to bringing dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting wouldn’t be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List has been proven 100% guilty!

When Tessa’s own boyfriend shows up on the List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the rest, or will Tessa’s sneaky ways end in catastrophe?

The Naughty List. Is your boyfriend on it?

This book is perfect if you're looking for something fun and cute, with some serious issues thrown in. How awesome is the thought of cheerleaders spying on cheating boyfriends? I must say that it would be nice if there was an SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens) in my school! And the cheerleaders aren't stereotyped as mean! Or ditzy! I love it!

Tessa wasn't a bad main character. She feels a need to be perfect, perky, and polite all the time. If she's not she feels really bad about it, which is something that I can kind of relate to, being a perfectionist. I'm not always perky or polite though ;). She's trying to be the perfect cheer captain, leader of SOS, girlfriend, and daughter. Which is a lot to have on your plate. It really starts to burn her out, which you can see throughout the book.

The other characters weren't completely developed for me, however. At times I also felt a bit of a disconnect with Tessa. There were a few things that she did that I didn't really understand why. The plot is great though, and I loved the little SOS reports in between the chapters.

  1. I've been wanting to read this book. And I have to agree with you that it would be really cool to have cheerleaders spying on boyfriends! Great review and I also really like the cover.

  2. Glad you liked it! This sounds like something many teens would enjoy. It's not for me, though!
