"This fast-paced, thrilling read belongs in all school libraries. It touches on issues such as toxic friendships, high school sports, gender roles, and stereotyping." --SLJ

"High school drama, cliques, jealousy, obsession, the power of friendship, and the toxicity of codependence are explored with sensitivity... all balanced seamlessly against family dynamics, making for an unusually complex story. Engrossing." --Kirkus Reviews

"Krischer's sophomore novel explores the kinds of toxic relationships that teenagers often find themselves in. A heavy dose of cheer terminology immerses readers in that world, while strong themes of independence, friendships, and boundaries will speak to teen readers. Gripping." --Booklist

"A riveting, intimate portrayal of just how intense and all-consuming female friendships can be. Urgent and piercing, The Falling Girls is a gut-punch of a book. Hayley Krischer's latest novel is not to be missed." --Jessica Goodman, bestselling author of They Wish They Were Us and They'll Never Catch Us

"With The Falling Girls, Hayley Krischer has woven a suspenseful, poignant, and tangled web of friendships set against the electric backdrop of high school cheer. Like teen girlhood itself, the intensity of these relationships is sometimes beautiful, sometimes dark. Like the best thrillers, it is ultimately deadly." --Kit Frick, author of I Killed Zoe Spanos

"A compelling, crushing, and spot-on story about toxicity, feminism, and friendship, The Falling Girls is a knock-your-socks off novel that packs an emotional wallop. A gorgeous and powerful book about American girlhood." --Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces and You'd Be Home Now
