Best friends Harper Waddle, Sophie Bushell, and Kate Foster committed the ultimate suburban sin: bailing on college to pursue their dreams. Middlebury-bound Becca Winsberg was convinced her friends had gone insane until they reminded her she just might have a dream of her own.

Now the year is half-way through and their dreams seem within reach. Well, almost. Harper has managed to gain the freshman fifteen without ever being a freshman, though locked in her basement bathroom she finds inspiration and finally seems to be writing from the heart. Sophie is forced to leave her cushy Beverly Hills quarters and crashes on Sam's couch while looking for her big Hollywood break. Kate is doing aid work in Ethiopia, where she encounters family ghosts - along with Darby, the handsome but antagonistic Princeton student who thinks she's a dumb blonde who couldn't possibly care about Ethiopia "since there are no celebrities here." And when Becca finally emerges from her lovers' nest, it seems her relationship with Stuart isn't as perfect as she thought.

Even if "the year that changed everything" has sometimes been less than dreamy, these four best friends will always have each other.

FOOTFREE AND FANCYLOOSE picks up right where BASS ACKWARDS AND BELLY UP ends, at the end of the Christmas-New Year holiday season. Harper Waddle¿college reject, writer-barista, and Dream Train starter¿has burned the first fifty pages of her first novel as per her English teacher/dream man Mr. Finelli¿s constructive criticism. This time she is starting over and writing from the heart. Harper is determined to let nothing stop her, but mixed feelings about her coworker, Judd, Mr. Finelli, and a family accident make the road a lot bumpier.All the way across the ocean, Kate has joined a humanitarian project in Ethiopia, digging wells for villages. She feels more in control and strong and herself than she¿s ever felt¿except her teammate, a pretentious Princetonian named Darby, mislabels her as a ditzy blond and seems to think she is a waste of time and space. In LA, Sophie is getting used to a new Hollywood sort of life¿far, far away from the glamorous poolhouse she used to inhabit. Now she¿s rooming with Sam, the Meyers¿ ex-poolboy, and still struggling to make it big, still feeling like she¿s not LA material. She snags an agent finally, but at what cost? How much of herself is she willing to give up in order to advance up the screwed-up quid pro quo world of Hollywood?And finally, at Middlebury College, Becca is living out her Dream, bigtime. Not only is she doing phenomenal on the slopes, she¿s also head over heels for her boyfriend, Stuart, a smart, understanding, gorgeous guy, despite the fact that he IS a football player. But of course, perfect bliss cannot endure in Becca¿s world. She receives a shocking revelation about her family that sends her Stuart ecstasy into a hurtful tailspin.The lives of four friends who chose the other path¿and grew and succeeded as a result. Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain¿s books are full of chick-lit adventure and romance, which will be sure to please girls all over.

This sequel to BASS ACKWARDS AND BELLY UP takes the second half of the year of dreams with these four best friends. Becca is still at Middlebury living the life of a ski bum and in love. She's found her guy and she's sharing every moment with him. But her family life comes crashing down again and she just might say something she'll regret. Sophie needs to find an apartment pronto as she's being kicked out of her great digs - and an acting job wouldn't be too bad, either. It's hard to say you're an actress if no one is hiring you. Kate is "taking the water." She's gone to Africa to build wells for towns in desperate need of close water. Will being half a world away bring her closer to her family and also help her find her way home? Harper found her voice and spends her free time writing in the bathroom where she can escape the world. In between writing, she must deal with her love life and her family issues. The friendship of these four girls reaches beyond space and time and helps each one through both rough times and triumphs. It's a great sisterhood novel, showing the ups and downs of friendship and how one moment can change your whole life.

This was a very good book about an epic adventure of four friends finding themselves. I would definitely reread this book which i don't do often with books. This book made me laugh, cry, and want to go follow my dreams at the same time. Since i did read this book before i started college it was kind of awesome and funny to read and made me want to do as much as i possibly could to reach my dreams. All and all a good read.

I read both Bass Ackwards and Belly up and Footfree and Fancyloose each multiple times, and they are absolutely amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I must say it was better then the first, if you loved it you will fall head-over-heals for Footfree and Fancyloose.
This target audience for this book would definately be teens, but it is quite and easy read.
I feel that there is much more that could be said/written about Sophie, Kate, Becca, and Harper. I am absolutely dying for a third book, I feel that it would definately clear things up, plus, I just cannot get enough of these books. As I have said persistently these books are impossibly fantastic!
Footfree and Fancyloose deserves an A++++++!!!!
I hope with a crazy passion that a third, and fourth, book are in the works!!!!

This was a really really good book and it was just as good as the first one. The only problem I had with the book was some relationships didn't really progress and they had some loose ends at the end. A book should only have loose ends if the series is over. Hopefully they are planning on making this a trilogy because I want to see all questions answered and NO loose ends.

I loved the first book and the sequel was just icing on the cake! I couldn't put it down.. and when i did.. i didn't want it to end. SOme of the topics were very interesting... the water works program is amazing and this book pushed me to want to become involved. I was estatic when Darby and Kate were together in the end. Every girl deserves her own Darby.. someone that brings out the best in you and pushes you in all the right ways. I hope there is another followup of Footfree and Fancyloose. 'a triquel??' haha! It's for all the girls that loved the sisterhood of the traveling pants.... but have grownup!
