"Sweet without being saccharine, this short work is a wise, funny look at the distance between queer rights and real acceptance."
– Publishers Weekly
"Showing that everyone has more to learn, and that embracing others is often the best way to do it, Cheer Up is a wonderful graphic novel."
– Foreword Reviews
"Readers will root for these girls as they navigate the waters of self-confidence, love, and cheerleading."
– Sarah Rice, Booklist [Starred Review]
"In the vein of Ngozi Ukazu’s Check, Please! or C.S. Pacat and Johanna the Mad’s Fence, this peppy yet angsty graphic novel irresistibly reclaims sports for queer and trans audiences. Recommended for all teen collections."
– School Library Journal
"Cheer Up! is joyful and insistent in its portrayal of queer teens like Annie and Bebe as worthy of love and respect, imperfections and all."
– Alanna Felton, Shelf Awareness [Starred Review]
"Wholesome and heartwarming."
