Faith and the Camp Snob: #1 (Team Cheer)
It was a quick, easy book to read. The format of the book was approachable and I loved reading the little lists and notes at the bottom that explained the cheer leading moves, as I know nothing about cheer leading, except the things they wave about are called pom poms. It's a happy ending that will make people smile. I was exactly the same when I was about nine or ten. She was shy and didn't like being the centre of attention, yet when she got to know people she was a bubbly and happy girl.
I felt very sympathetic towards her when Ella was being horrible to her. I felt very sympathetic towards her when Ella was being horrible to her. Ella was your typical mean girl that is always thrown into the chick-lit, middle-grade genre. I wish that the author had just given a bit of reason as to why Ella was a bit of a bully, but unfortunately she didn't so I couldn't sympathise for her. I warmed up to her in the end when she was sweet to Faith though.
Faith and the Camp Snobs was a cute middle-grade novel. I think it will be enjoyable to girls of about It teaches good lessons like having good friends, doing what you love and not letting someone block your way to success.

Her nastiness was more due to her being blunt and insensitive, rather than spite. I loved the ending as well, how we don't see the outcome of the competition, just that Faith feels like a winner already so who really wins isn't necessary.
Although I can't help but think that some of the pop-culture references are going to make this feel dated in a year or two! Jun 17, Heidi rated it really liked it Shelves: ya , read Faith is happy to have quickly found a new friend as she gets ready to attend a new middle school.

This is a useful title to help late elementary and middle graders recognize bullying behavior as well as being proud when someone refuses to cave in to a bully or mean girl. I like the fact that most of her squad mates disliked Ella's behavior.

She meets Gaby, who lives a few houses away, and is encouraged by Gaby and her mother to try out for the Cheerleading squad. Faith is really excited about being on the squad and going to cheer camp in July. Faith gets put in a situation where she must prove that she is one of the squad or the loser that Ella makes her out to be. I identify with Faith on so many levels. I was the shy new kid so many times. I think this is a great read. This story shows how true friends behave and how to deal with bullies.
