    • I enjoyed reading Snap, but this is one of those times that the synopsis on the back of the novel is totally misleading. If you read the above you’d think, oh kinda spooky dead people showing up in pictures, this could be interesting. But the summary should really say. Madison Sabatini a spoiled, self centered and extremely shallow almost sophomore, dealing with adjusting to a new life, new friends, whining about wearing non-name brand clothing, and the worst life ever. Not to mention that she [...]


    • From the summary, I was pretty much expecting some ghost story and how Madison managed to save the people in her photos from dying. However, this was most definitely not the case. In fact, Snap is more about Madison and her family and how she would survive in a whole new place with new friends and without money - something that she had always taken for granted.My first impression and probably my lasting impression of Madison is that she's a spoiled brat. She is always, always, always thinking ab [...]


    • The summary of "Snap" is the most misleading thing I have ever read. I expected the book to be full of action, mystery, and horrific events. Instead, I got a diary of an average spoiled teenage girl. Out of 221 pages, only maybe ten were about ghosts in the photograph. The author completely abandons the idea of ghosts in the middle of the story and wrote about Madison's love life. In my opinion, Snow should have just gotten rid of the ghost part (which isn't much) and made it a book about teenag [...]


    • Snap by Carol Snow tells the story of a popular girl with a great life, a great house, great friends and the best spot on the best high school news paper. When her vacation cruise gets cancelled for a trip to the worst beach in her opinion, everything goes downhill fast. As she is on the beach taking pictures, a strange old women appears in her photo, but she wasn't there when she took the picture. Sounds interesting, right? It turns out that even though it had an very surprisingly interesting p [...]


    • This book was ab-so-lute-lee A-Freakin-mazing!!!!!! I really liked how she took the whole idea of you growing into yourself and put it in a way that made you think and start saying "Oh my zombie that's how I want to know that I made an important decision". But I really liked how she made Madison think she was seeing ghosts of the dead people. It also made me think that she was seeing ghosts and that she was maybe going a little coo-ku for coco puffs. But most of all I liked how she kept the stor [...]


    • The title and cover are misleading. If you are looking for a ghost/paranormal adventure skip this one. If you want a teen girl in a new environment with some romance and such eh there are better books but this one isn't bad. It mercifully short so give it a read I guess.




    • Snap first caught my eye because of the cover, which I actually like and think fits the novel really well, but it was the summary that drew me in. I am a photography hobbyist (think dark rooms and winding my own film), so the fact that Madison is a photographer was interesting. Furthermore, Madison is a photographer who sees dead people in her pictures (I am not this type of photographer) made her even more intriguing. The supernatural aspect was well done. It wasn’t what I was expecting, but [...]


    • Madison Sabatini is excited about the upcoming school year. She'll be a photographer on the school paper and hanging with her friends. Sure, she's a little bummed about having the two week trip to Hawaii canceled, but that's not enough to darken her horizons. When her contractor father takes a job in Sandyland, a dreary town on the coast, she's completely unprepared for what happens next. Mom announces that the whole family is going along, ostensibly to make up for the canceled trip. It doesn't [...]


    • When I first looked at the summary of Snap, I almost put the book back on the shelf. I didn't like the thought off strange figures popping up in this girl's pictures taken on her camera, when the people were never even there in the first place. That sounded very creepy, and I don't usually read mysteries, thrillers, or horror stories. I could not see me reading this kind of book. But, I thought I would give the book a shot just for fun. I liked the book so much, I was disappointed when it ended. [...]


    • Preppy and pampered Madison Sabatini has just about everything going for her. She got the job as photographer for her school newspaper, she has great friends, great clothes, and she is going on a Hawaiian vacation on her summer break with enough time left at the end of the summer to come home for the newspaper’s pool party. That is, until her parents cancel the trip and inform her that they are going to Sandyland instead. She suspects something is up with her parents, her dad isn’t talking m [...]


    • Madison Sabatini thought she knew who she was: an almost-sophomore with a bright future. The newest photographer on her school paper. A shopaholic with great hair and a fabulous wardrobe. Then, in a flash, everything changed.Now she's stuck in Sandyland, a gloomy beach town in the middle of nowhere, living with her parents in a crappy hotel "suite." 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 Ph [...]


    • Madison did not think this was how she would be spending her summer. She pictured herself in Hawaii with her family. Instead they are spending it at the worst beach she has ever been to. Sandyland, USA. Not exactly paradise.There is nothing to do in Sandyland so Madison spends her time taking pictures at the beach. When her camera breaks she ends up at Psychic Photo where she meets some strange characters. Delilah, Leo, Duncan, Rose, and Larry. They make up a very unique family and somehow Madis [...]


    • This is, technically, a re-read - I borrowed it fromm the school library when I was in, probably, about eighth grade or so, read it, really enjoyed it, and then saw it on BookOutlet sometime last year, remembered all of the good times, and just had to buy it. And it's not as great as I remember.The big thing I remember about this book being awesome was the love interest. I remember him being adorable. Thankfully, he was still adorable. Seriously, Duncan kept me going. Without Duncan, this probab [...]


    • Original/full review here: thebookpixie/2009ReviewWhen 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 [...]


    • After reading both Switched and Snap by Carol Snow I have to say that I am unquestionably a fangirl. What I love about Carol Snow the most is , her ability to create a broad variety of attention-grabbing, and charming characters.In Snap in particular we are introduced to a main character whose love of photography and family problems make her both an entirely relatable and sympathetic character. I felt so bad for Madison when she had to move and leave everything behind. Yet, she comes to grow as [...]


    • 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 als [...]


    • Snap was one of those novels that you can’t assume about based off the summary. This book was more about Madison and her moving to a new town, losing her old friends, her perfectly planned school year, and a potential boyfriend. It was less about the eerie scenario of her photograph and the possible deaths related to it.Snap was a decent read for someone looking to take time away. I really didn’t get much of Maddie’s character as she seemed shallow this few chapters around. She did, howeve [...]

    • The story is about a girl named Madison. Her family is caught in the recession and they end up moving to a place called Sandyland. The problem is they don't tell Madison why they are moving and they leave her with the impression that they will be returning. Madison has do deal with their betrayal plus deal with all the friends and opportunities she has left behind.The second theme of the book, and a relatively minor theme, is that Madison takes a lot of photos and on some a person will show up t [...]


    • When I read the description of this book I knew that I had to get my hands on a copy of it. So I posted a blog post on here to trade a book of mine for a copy of this book. I got my copy and couldn't wait for it to get here-Thanks Cindy!! After reading the description on the back of the book I was thinking that it was going to be a YA suspense book. Ghosts popping up in pictures, Madison moving to a sleepy beach town. And I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this book. BUT, I still lik [...]


    • 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 r [...]


    • I don't think this book is very well-known yet but it ought to be. It started off a bit slow but got going pretty quickly and turned into a very enjoyable book. At the beginning of the novel, Madison is a typical 15-year-old who is into clothes, fashion, friends, photography, and having fun. She's fairly self-centered and whiny. But when her parents take her to a lame beach town for a "vacation" her digital camera starts actingother-worldly. People that weren't in the original shot start showing [...]


    • An enjoyable novel that successfully balances a plot involving young Madison Sabatini's sudden and unexpected relocation to the small, economically downscale beach town of Sandyland, with an interesting subplot involving a series of strange, ghostlike apparitions appearing in the photographs Madison takes of her new surroundings. Snow's treatment of the Sabatini family's drop into misfortune never relies on stereotypes to cast those from either privileged or underdeveloped backgrounds, making Ma [...]


    • The story is gripping and fun. Madison is a character you want to cheer for and yell at, sometimes all at once. She has so much depth, but can also be shallow - which allows the readers to make choices for themselves. Madison's parents and the other adults in the story are genuine; not at all over-the-top or stereotypical. Given the cover and blurb on the back I was expecting something eerier. Even so, I wasn't disappointed. This is a great book.Pros: Fully developed characters and realism add d [...]

    • I really started to like Madison there at the end. If she would've changed early on I might have liked her better. I found Madison too whiny and judgmental for my taste. I do, however, think it was horrible of her parents to not even give her a heads up on what was happening to their house and everything. How awful to learn it from people you're friends with and on the Internet no less. Delilah and Duncan were too nice to Madison when she was thinking horrible things about their looks or clothes [...]


    • It was an okay read. An affluent young girl suddenly pivoted into semi poverty due to her father's reversal of fortunes, and how she adjusts to it. She had to move from her comfortable home to a rundown motel at barely a moment's notice, at first even without the knowledge of her parents' condition or plans, and later has to cope with weird friends, and her camera sometimes showing spooky pics of people who are not there. Maybe I didnot like it as much as I am not a great fan of romance and I st [...]


    • 7th&up. Rather liked this tale of a spoiled, kind of self-centered girl who ends up moving to a "craptacular" seaside town when her parents fall on hard times and lose their house and all their possessions. Along with a huge change in lifestyle, Madison can't even find comfort in her favorite pastime, photography, because her camera seems to have picked up a nasty habit of foretelling death. Go figure.Pretty solid characters, especially Madison- who is far from perfect, but likable nonethele [...]
