Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The authors, daughters of a surgeon and entrepreneur from Lubbock, Tex., were all cheerleaders with "America's Team," the Dallas Cowboys, from 1978 to 1985. As narrated by Stephanie, the book pretty much puts to rest the rumor that the cheerleaders were concubines for the athletes: fraternization was forbidden and few members of the troupe would risk losing their jobs, even though the young women were exploited economically and a number of them used cocaine to stay skeletally thin. The book points out too that Texas is "filled with macho men with nothing else to do but play football" and with groupies, for whom cheering for Dallas was the summit of their ambition. The breathless, gee-golly-wow tone of the tale would be off-putting if the book did not present such a telling picture of the vacousness of this Texas legend. Photos not seen by PW. $60,000 ad/promo.

From Library Journal

It is difficult to find the authors' intent in these "confessions" regarding the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Suzette, Stephanie, and Sheri Scholz were cheerleaders during the Cowboys' heyday in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In this book, they alternate between breathless rants on how their profession held more status than royalty, and tiresome cliches about dieting, booze, drugs, and men taking advantage of sweet, down-home girls. Their report of life in Texas in the high-rolling 1970s is mildly interesting, as is their portrait of their mom, a woman whose entire life was devoted to matching purses and shoes. Purchase only if you must. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/91.

I am a fan of DCC: Making the Team and so I decided to read this book when I saw it mentioned on a message board. It is obvious that the author is still a little starry eyed about the DCCs and the pseudo celebrity status it afforded her but there are moments of real clarity, as when she writes that she and her fellows cheerleaders were pretty girls who had been broken down or who were terrified of imperfections and responded well to being called "fat" or less than beautiful. The book is pretty honest about both the excess and poverty caused by the squad. However, it kind of peters out near the end. It could have been organized a bit better and the tale if the evil cheer coach would have been a lot more believable without the included photo of the girls reuniting with her for a reunion. But it's still an interesting read if you're a fan of reality TV or, say, JR Ewing.

Either these girls are terrible writers or their editor should find another line of work. If you can get past that, its interesting to see what life is like for someone whose fortune is their face and body. The three sisters are likeable and interesting, but ya gotta love their mother! THAT'S where the story is!

This is a fun book that delves into a family where all three daughters were Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. The ups and downs, their time in the beauty pageant circuit. One of the most interesting characters in the book is the Mom who makes her looks her focus of her life.

The photographs are extremely beautiful and the text is sweet and interesting. Why shouldn't these beautiful, accomplished women feel proud of their morals, goals and achievements? They worked hard to attain their cheerleading status and pageant titles. It reads like somebody's diary to me. No need to get all editorial and slam them for "poor" writing. They wrote the book in a conversational manner; sounded like they were talking to me.

It was a decent read. I thought there would be more scandal in it. There wasn't really anything earth shattering revealed about the dcc.
