It's Not About the Pom-Poms- Review

Laura Vikmanis

    It's Not About the Pom-Poms is definitely not about the pom-poms. It's a very inspiring and motivating story of making your dreams come, gaining self-confidence, not giving up and courage.

Laura Vikmanis is a courageous 40 year old mother of two who took chances, determined not to give up on her dreams and she won. Through out many obstacles (most of which I would have given up) Laura stayed determined and overcame every setback.  Laura challenges included a horrific automobile accident, an abusive (both mentally and physically) husband, not making the squad on the first try, and grueling divorce and child custody battles just to name a few.

It's Not About the Pom-Poms gives an inside look into the world of a not so ordinary NFL cheerleader. While most of the cheerleaders were at least 20 years younger than Laura that didn't stop her from living her dream and being an inspiration and role model for all of us. Whether you want to be an NFL cheerleader, writer, lawyer - whatever your dream, whatever your age go for it. It's never too late to do it, be happy and love your life.

I have a feeling "It's Not About the Pom-Poms" will not be the last we hear from Ms. Laura Vikmanis.

To purchase your copy of "It's Not About the Pom-Poms" go to or Random House.

  1. Laura sounds like an inspiring woman. I would love to read this book. I see that the audio version is being reviewed bu Elaine Charles on her radio show, The Book Report, on Mothers day. It should be worth while listening to. Put the book on your ipod as you work out. That sounds like a good plan. Check the radio show out at
