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?
My Thoughts:
On Friday (the 25th) I headed to Portland for an author signing. This was for Suzanne Selfors but I invited Suzanne Young as well. I was super excited about reading her book before I met her but afterwards there was no way I could hold off any longer. Suzanne was such a sweetie and was fun to be around. By the time I got home that night it was too late to read. As soon as I woke up on Saturday I started The Naughty List. I was unable to put it down.

Tessa was an incredible character. It was impossible to not like her. I felt as if I was Tessa. My heart broke when hers did. I wanted to jump up and cheer when she did. Tessa was just flat out amazing. I loved how she was intelligent. I’m not going to lie and say cheerleaders really are that way. I’m sure there are smart cheerleaders but at my school it’s always the stupid easy girls that make it. I loved that Suzanne portrayed a different kind of girl then the typical. She showed us that its possible.

Aiden is Tessa’s ah-dorable sweetie. I found myself falling for him from the first mention of his name. Move over Edward, there’s a new boy in town J. He was the kind of boy all of us girls want. Cute, intelligent and athletic, what more could you ask for? I appreciated that even though he wasn’t the main character he was still portrayed so great that you just had to love him.

The plot of this novel wowed me. It was super unique and very well developed. How often do we hear of cheerleading spies? The correct answer is NEVER! Not even Charlie’s Angels had that! I also loved the names of the sports teams in this book. For most people it wouldn’t even be noticeable but since I live in Oregon I was cracking up. Our two biggest rival schools are the ducks and the beavers. Both of these were used in this novel. You can tell Suzanne is around here too!

My overall opinion of this book is that you should mark your calendar and on February 4th go buy a copy. Don’t wait!
