More About the Author

Called "an author to watch" by Booklist, Carol Snow is an American author of contemporary women's fiction and young adult literature. After graduating from Brown University with a degree in psychology, she spent many years writing literary short stories before accepting that she couldn't go more than a few hundred words without cracking a joke. She eventually turned her attention to crafting humorous, heartfelt stories with a wider commercial appeal, and In 2006, Berkley/Penguin published her first novel, Been There, Done That, which Publisher's Weekly called "humorous, wise . . . romance with a bit of social commentary." Since then, she has written four more books for adults, Getting Warmer (2007), Here Today, Gone to Maui (2009), Just Like Me, Only Better (2010), and the upcoming What Came First (2011), about which Laura Fitzgerald, bestselling author of Veil of Roses, said, "Carol Snow mixes her trademark humor with tenderness and understanding in this good-mom/bad-mom tale of unexpected twists and turns." Carol has also written two young adult books for HarperCollins, Switch (2008), an ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers, and Snap (2009). Foreign rights to her books have sold to publishers in Germany, Norway, and Romania.

Carol Snow grew up in New Jersey. Much of her childhood was spent immersed in books; the rest was focused on avoiding dodgeball. In addition to her psychology degree from Brown University, she holds an M.A.T. in English from Boston College. Before getting her first book published, she had the typical (for a writer) assortment of odd jobs: tour guide, tutor, chambermaid, waitress. She worked for a T-shirt company, a child services agency, and a vanity press. She even had a short stint in local politics. Her campaign brochures were really pretty, with flawless punctuation.

Since leaving New Jersey, Carol has lived all over the place: Rhode Island, London, Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Utah, Arizona, and, now, Southern California, where she shares a cat-fur-coated house with her husband and their two children.

Format: Hardcover
Snap is a fun and light read making it perfect for a snowy, rainy, or even chilly day stuck at home.

While Madison's character is a bit of a spoiled brat in the beginning, she was an easy character to like ( and eventually root for) as she began to show growth in becoming someone who saw that money wasn't everything. Her friends, Delilah, Duncan, and Leo, on the other hand, were more favorable to me most of the time because they each were unique and interesting, making them an absolute blast to read about.

The plot was decent and pretty interesting, but I felt that it could have been a bit better if more depth had been added. Though, I did enjoy the ghost story line along with the little romance that was added in throughout the novel.

In all, Snap is an enjoyable read, that will leave you with a smile on your face by the end. I'm looking forward to reading Carol's previous novel, Switch, as well as her future novels.

Format: Hardcover
Madison Sabatini had a plan for her future, then it is crushed suddenly by one conversation. Madison is stuck in the strange, sleepy beach town of Sandyland, after her parents become bankrupt and they have to sell their house. Instead of spending the summer with her friends at home, she's hanging out with pink-haired Delilah, an artist who works in a shop called Psychic Photo, and a skater boy named Duncan who's totally not her type. Except, maybe he is.
She throws herself into her true passion: photography. Suddenly bizarre figures start appearing in her pictures, people that for sure weren't there to begin with. The strange thing is that these people are later reported dead. With the help of Delilah and Duncan, she finds out the real truth of what is happening.
Snap was a really different book. It started off slow as all mysteries do, but quickly gained momentum. Madison was like any angst-ridden teen. It wasn't like she didn't have a reason to be like that. If I was surprised like that I would love it. Delilah was an interesting character. I loved her artsy and funky personality. I really wanted to be friends with her. Duncan was also sweet and cute. I though that Snap would be a bit scarier, but I was surprised. It was a fairly original book. Carol Snow is an amazing writer and I will have to check out Switch. I recommend this book, if you are looking for a quick and interesting mystery.

My Thoughts: Snap was a fun novel. There was no major depth involved but was still a fun light read. I actually liked Madison even though she seemed a bit spoiled. She reminds us all of our teenage self, you know when nothing matters but clothes, boys, and accessories. She didn't have to worry about the huge things like our parents did. I liked the premise of this story because like her, I love to take pictures. I constantly carry my camera around with me, just waiting on the perfect shot! I also liked Duncan. He is the skater-boy type of guy. He reminded me a lot of my high school boyfriend. Even the way he acted!! Madison starts seeing ghosts in her pictures, but she sums it up to the camera's fault. She can't actually see them without the camera, and its just a few "ghosts." There wasn't a whole lot of romance in this book, just a little ( I am a romance junkie) but I never expect "too" much romance from young adult books, haha! Overall, I did enjoy this book, it would be a good book to take with you on vacation or a long weekend because its a fast read but interesting at the same time!

Overall: Fun cute story. Now I need to read Switch next. I enjoy Carol Snow's work. Its very light and easy to read.

Cover: The cover is very cute! I like how it does not show her whole face, and she has really pretty brown eyes. I think this cover definitely fits the book and I can see Madison really looking like that!!! (Reviewed by Princess Bookie)

Format: Hardcover
When I first read the premise of Snap, I automatically thought, "Wow! I'm going to love this book. The main character has a passion for photography just like I do. Plus there is a supernatural twist to it." Needless to say, I was somewhat disappointed when this book failed to live up to my expectations.

Snap was a lot more about Madison adjusting to her new life in a new town than it was about the mysterious people showing up in her pictures. Don't get me wrong, it was still a fairly good, fun book, it just wasn't quite what the synopsis lead me to believe and it was extremely predictable.

Madison wasn't my favorite character in this. I don't what exactly but there was something about her that just rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe it was the way she thought badly about Delilah, Leo, and Duncan because of their money circumstances. Yeah, I definitely think that was it. I mean they were so nice to her, trying to be her friend, but she still thought she was way better than them. She was also very whiny. However, Madison did have her moments when I liked her a little better. I definitely would have to say that I liked the other characters better though. They were more interesting and seemed like the kind of people I could hang out with.

In the end, this was a quick read that kept me occupied and mildly entertained. It wasn't the worst but it sure could have been better. I don't know if I'll re-read this one or not.
