0 Reviews
A guided tour into the megaphone world of pyramids and liberties, pom-poms and back-ends, tackles and touchdowns, narrated with affection, respect and a bit of cheek, this book follows from camp to competition on the trail of the top cheerleading and football teams in America. Interspersed with comments from the kids themselves (There are two kinds of girls: Cheerleaders, and those who wanna be them') and documenting everything from the thrill of victory to the agony of defeat, this is an inside look at the youthful, natural character of quintessential Americana.'
