I was not a pompon girl (Pompon in my high school was for the cheerleader rejects and not cool!) and I doubt Holly was a pompon person. (I am certain she had NO school spirit!) I do know that since my dark days in high school that cheerleading has evolved to big time dance routines and pretty impressive acrobatics. I also didn’t think there was much of a difference between cheer and pompon. According to this book, I am wrong. They are different.
Regardless of one’s opinion on this as a school activity, these materials are important to teen collections. However, one look at these costumes and hair might send modern teens elsewhere. Specifically, this paperback edition that I had was overly taped up and still falling apart. I would hate to see what the holding library uses as a standard for weeding on condition. Please upgrade to something from this century.
