Recommends it for: "The Cheerleader" fans
Will she or won't she hook back up with Tom? Don't read any further if you don't want to know. I have to say, considering "The Cheerleader" is one of the best books ever written in this genre, the first two-thirds of "Snowy" is profoundly disappointing. The author wastes too many words repeating events that happened in the first book for the apparent benefit of new readers. It has to be for new readers, because I can assure you that no one who ever read "The Cheerleader" forgot who Dudley was, ...more

While I loved the 1st book The Cheerleader, the story following Snowy through college to her late 40s lacked enthusiasm for me. Some of the story skipped years, which is fine, but seemed more sketchy and incomplete than Snowy and friends during their high school years which included a lot of fashion, cultural references and fads of the time. Maybe it was just the glory days were behind them and adult life is more mundane.

Snowy actually came across as boring and complacent in the later half of t

2014: I still love it. I love all of them, and I love visiting with them again. I love how it starts in the 60s, in a time where they had to buy fake wedding rings to spend a night in a hotel and she worries every time that they'll be caught by the hotel cop and sent to jail, and ends in the 80s, where Bev's daughter doesn't even need to get married.

I wish we knew Alan better - I love the first time they met, and I love the beginning of their relationship, but by skipping around so much, we lose

Be careful what you wish for! I read The Cheerleader in high school and absolutely loved it. I wanted to be Snowy because, despite her insecurities, she was an honor student, a cheerleader and got the boy of her dreams. I often wondered what happened to her, Tom, Bev, Puddles and the rest of the gang, and how her life turned out. Unfortunately, I found out in Snowy. Of course, I could have saved myself some reading time by skipping The Cheerleader altogether since the author recapped it -- nay, ...more

According to my book journal notes from my first reading of this, I found the last third of the book a bit contrived. Funny how going through it all this time, I didn't think that at all. I was just there for Snowy's ride, relishing the details that MacDougall packs in. (I love Puddles' late-1980s Banana Republic outfit, exactly what one would have found during the the safari look days of Banana Republic.)

The afternoon when Snowy and Alan meet is one of my favorite scenes ever.

The sequel to The Cheerleader was a fairly good read. I found myself skimming some of it - The book takes up when Snowy graduates from high school and goes until she is almost 50. There are a lot of skipped times in life - I didn't tear through this one as fast as I did the first book. I did like it though. I'll be starting the third book in the series soon - It is a lot longer! I hope I finish it faster than Almost Moon.

This was a fine sequal to The Cheerleader, and again I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and was very invested in the characters. My major complaint is the fact that the book tried to cover too much time in too little space, I wish it had been separated into two or three more to give us more of a chance to become invested in the people in Henrietta's life after she left high school.

As much as I like The Cheerleader, I like Snowy more. I like that Snowy had a real life after college -- that she felt like she had unfulfilled promise tatooed to her forehead, that she had a real marriage.

A welcome return of a favorite character (and her friends) and a solid bridge into her middle years. The last few chapters are bittersweet, but leave you confident that there is more to come from MacDougall.

When I saw this book in the bookstore, and realized it was the sequel to The Cheerleader, I bought it--even though it was in hardback, which is something that I try not to do. Not as good as The Cheerleader, but I didn't really expect it to be, and did like it.

Book #2 in the series, and my husband bought me all three in the series....more of the same, moving into college and beyond with Snowy and her 2 best friends, I liked this one better than the first.
