We Are the Wildcats is Siobhan Vivian’s latest novel and it released yesterday! Simon Teen invited me to participate on the blog tour, and I am excited to share my aesthetic for the book today. In case you don’t know, We Are the Wildcats follows six field hockey teammates over 24 hours as their friendship deepens and they face their toxic coach together.

A toxic coach finds himself outplayed by the high school girls on his team in this deeply suspenseful novel, which unspools over twenty-four hours through six diverse perspectives.

Tomorrow, the Wildcat varsity field hockey squad will play the first game of their new season. But at tonight’s team sleepover, the girls are all about forging the bonds of trust, loyalty, and friendship necessary to win.

Everything hinges on the midnight initiation ceremony—a beloved tradition and the only facet of being a Wildcat that the girls control. Until now.

Coach—a handsome former college player revered and feared in equal measure—changes the plan and spins his team on a new adventure. One where they take a rival team’s mascot for a joyride, crash a party in their pajamas, break into the high school for the perfect picture.

But as the girls slip out of their comfort zone, so do some long-held secrets. And just how far they’re willing to go for their team takes them all—especially Coach—by surprise.

A testament to the strength and resilience of modern teenage girls, We Are the Wildcats will have readers cheering.

    This book seems like so much fun! I’ll definitely check it out! Oh, and I didn’t play any sports in high school, but I did basketball and rock climbing when I was in middle school!

    This sounds good. I didn’t play any sports in high school (or middle school really). I did take dance though.

    This looks amazing! I love the premise and how it’s all set in 24 hours with 6 points of view.

    I love your aesthetic/mood board!! I was a dancer/cheerleader in high school, so I was definitely athletic in ways. But I would never play field hockey because I would’ve got demolished!! I’m a small person!!

    I’m super excited to read this book!! It looks really good!!
