2014 Story 134

From Apex Magazine back in 2010:

134. DYING WITH HER CHEER PANTS ON by Seanan McGuire   I always say McGuire is at her best when she's smashing genres together, and this tale from four years ago (which I'd somehow never read before now) really proves the point: mixing high school drama, alien invasion and urban myths into a whole that is character-driven and affecting. Main character Bridget initially draws her strength from being one of the gang, a cheerleader and thus the top of the social pecking order at her school, but by the story's end I believe the decision she makes is not just because of the strength of her team, but also an internal strength she didn't realize she had.
