In a world where high school football players talk like lawyers (sometimes…) and cheerleaders raise their fists in revolt, you never know what's going to happen next!

For years the cheerleaders have served a pre-game snack to the players without complaint. But some of the girls have had enough of it. Will they get thrown off the squad? What will happen if the linebacker doesn't get his Twinkies? And how does a guy shower while wearing a football helmet? All these questions and more are answered in The Revolting Cheerleaders
