Nick refuses to graduate without getting the girl or the glory.<br /><br />Mia Ashlock is the remarkably kind cheer captain. She鈥檚 a yes girl, and her penchant for people pleasing always leads to bad relationships. After being humiliated in a very public dumping, her teammates decide to break her bad habit with a ban on boyfriends.<br /><br />When Nick sees a poster, advertising cheer tryouts, he has a crazy idea: quit football and become a cheerleader. It鈥檚 perfect! He can get close to Mia and steal the spotlight, using his true and hidden talent鈥攇ymnastics. Nick and Mia have instant chemistry, but it does him little good.

Breaching the friendzone will be much harder than he thought.<br /><br />Content: This book contains kissing along with limited/mild swearing and minimal inuendo/crude humor.

<b>THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER<br /><br />The extraordinary memoir of a peasant boy raised in rural Maoist China who was plucked from his village to study ballet and went on to become one of the greatest dancers of his generation.聽</b><br /><br />From a desperately poor village in northeast China, at age eleven, Li Cunxin was chosen by Madame Mao's cultural delegates to be taken from his rural home and brought to Beijing, where he would study ballet. In 1979, the young dancer arrived in Texas as part of a cultural exchange, only to fall in love with America-and with an American woman. Two years later, through a series of events worthy of the most exciting cloak-and-dagger fiction, he defected to the United States, where he quickly became known as one of the greatest ballet dancers in the world. This is his story, told in his own inimitable voice.<br /><br /><b>THE BASIS FOR A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE</b>
