Halle Bolingbroke is all but guaranteed to become the next captain of the New London Lady Leopard Varsity Cheer Squad.  It's her senior year, she's been cheering all her life, and her mom, Doretha, is both the former captain and current coach.  Halle isn't feeling all that cheerful about her mother's brand of cheering, though, so she has taken a job at the local truckstop diner.  Doretha will stop at nothing to maintain her cheer dynasty, Charmain, the two women face off in a quest for captainhood, power and cheer itself.

Cheer Wars is inspired by Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part 1 and the true story of Wanda Holloway.
