My teeny, weenie hotel room
Holiday Spirit Level:
Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place
A spur-of-the-moment invite had me flying on New Year’s Day with my dad and his girlfriend, Beth, to New York City! I was super excited to focus on fashion, not to mention have a real vacation. BUT that’s not possible, since, you know, DRAMA follows me everywhere. Aside from scoping out a MAJOR Katie Parker lookalike here in the Big Apple, it seems the Grizzlies might not be able to compete in the novice Get Up and Cheer! competition Jacqui and I signed us up for because Katarina is failing Social Studies. AND this little vacay with Dad and Beth? NOT a vacay. They are moving here, and asked if I’d like to come with? SERIOUSLY!? Oh, and to top it all off, why oh why am I spending so much time thinking about Evan when I’m supposed to be in major LIKE with Bevan? So much for holiday spirit.
Maddy can't wait to explore the fashion and glamour of the city, and a week away from everything back home is just what she needs. What could possibly go wrong on vacay, anyway?? That is, except everything. After this vacation, Maddy's going to need a VACATION! This third installment of CHEER! Confessions of a Wannabe Cheerleader is a hilarious yet poignant story about growing up, making choices, and spreading lots and lots of holiday spirit!
