In the second book of the THE SQUAD cheerleading spy series, Toby "Anti-Social" Klein is still learning the ropes and trying to wrap her head around the whole ridiculousness of becoming a cheerleader.
The Big Guys have noticed some activity in Bayport that sparks their interest. Soon the squad is going undercover tracking these individuals to place bugs on them. However, something goes terribly wrong and one team comes close to dying. Now the squad must deal with a possible compromise.
In their "normal" lives, the school's choosing the Homecoming Queen. Half the squad is nominated and Toby just happens to be in the running, much to her dismay. Her little brother, Noah, is doing all that he can to win her the votes, but what he doesn't realize is that the seniors on the squad are not amused by his antics. He's causing Toby some major embarrassment and cold shoulders from the squad.
KILLER SPIRIT picks up right where the first book , PERFECT COVER, ends. If you cross Ally Carter's spy books with Meg Cabot's THE MEDIATOR series, you've got your smart-aleck anti-social heroine kicking butt and taking names - in a cheerleader outfit. If you haven't discovered this series yet, you're really missing out.
