This is also one of the few books in this series that is well edited and I give credit to the writer who was an English major because it is a very enjoyable read that flows nicely. Unfortunately this is not something I could say for some of the books that follow although they are still worth reading.
I definitely got the impression that if this young lady continues to write, she has a good future ahead of her. A nice job and definitely worth reading. (In fact, I gave my first copy away and actually bought a second copy because I enjoyed it so much.)
"Part Two" was a challenge for Sewell to complete as an employee at Walt Disney World which in-turns becomes a challenge for the reader to finish the book. Sewell is now working merchandising in the park and is not enjoying it at all. She cannot wait for her the second semester to end so she can head back to college. There is really less discussion about her work within the park and more about the adventures she goes one with co-workers. In this section many of the chapters read like she just phoned it in to fill some more pages.
If this book would have left out the second part I would have easily given it four or more stars. I gave it three stars because I really enjoyed the writing of part one and feeling like the outcome could be different than I expected I didn't stop reading it halfway through the second part. It ended how I expected. She still enjoys going to the park but she does not have any interest in working with Disney again. I guess much like Sewell wanted to see her second semester through to completion I wanted to see this book through to the end.
Disney employees are people. They have lives and their job is a big part of that life. Some experiences are wonderful--and some are rotten (remember Dorothy Gale's remarks about Oz in the 1939 Disney MGM edition of "the Wizard of Oz"?). Amber experienced both "there's no place like home" and "some of it wasn't very nice, and some of it was beautiful." Besides, Amber is a Harry Potter fan (Universal Studios property) and had to go "off-site" to get her Harry Potter fix.
But buy the book and let Amber tell you of her adventures in the magical land of Walt Disney World.
The second half of the book dragged a bit, as she attempted to write more in the style of a diary. Some weeks there just wasn't much to say and perhaps the book would've flowed better had she stuck to highlights. Amber wasn't as satisfied with her second program, but she was never overly negative, just realistic.
I loved her closing thoughts. She captured perfectly the conflicted feelings so many former CPs have. Nice work!
