For my future source collection

Someday I'm going to write an article about competitive cheer. Meanwhile, I'll add this book to my future source collection:

"College cheerleaders are extreme athletes who fly thirty feet in the air, build pyramids in which a single slip can send ten people crashing to the ground, and compete in National Championships that are won by hundredths of a point. Cheer! is a year-long odyssey into their universe, following three squads from tryouts to Nationals."
