Not In My School is a weekly meme hosted by yours truly that throws out one YA lit cliche a week for you to compare to your own high school days, current or past.  For more information go here.

Now for this week’s cliche . . .

Snatchy cheerleaders

I don’t know about you but the cheerleaders at my high school were NOT the top echelon of the social hierarchy, if I can even say there was a hierarchy at my school.  My high school cheerleaders consisted of a lot of girls that wanted to participate in something but didn’t want to put too much effort in (because cheerleading required barely more than fistpumping for us).  There were a few girls on there that, while nowhere near snatchy, were of a nominally popular variety.  It just wasn’t because they were cheer squad.  Shit, my class’s valedictorian was on the squad.  So it was a rather eclectic mix and maybe two or three of the girls actually had bodies like those chicks above.  The rest, well . . . let’s just say gym wasn’t their thing.

What about you?  What was it like in your school?  Leave your link in the comments!
