The only reason I didn't give this a full five stars was that I found her repeated references to "drinking the Kool-aid," as well as her occasional "above it all" attitude rather off-putting. Is it necessary to fully embrace the Disney-verse to enjoy being a Cast Member? Probably not. Does it mean that if you don't you're superior to those who do? Definitely not. Had that attitude carried through the entire book I would have rated it lower than four stars, but she had enough genuine "magical moments" that I was able to mostly ignore the remarks.
Again, I don't know if she was working on the book throughout her rotation (I wouldn't be surprised if she did), but in terms of the quality of the writing, Devin's is easily the best of the bunch. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future!
Devin is an English major and it shows in her writing style and in how she presents her ideas. The first book in the series, "Amber Earns Her Ears" was also written by an English Major and the skills show. Additionally, the editing, which had been slipping over the course of the series, has really turned itself around nicely. If they continue in this same quality, and with such interesting stories, then the series will continue to have a long life.
My only disappointment is that the size of the book is smaller then the others so it does not fit nicely on the shelf. But I can live with that minor change. All in all, a good book and recommended for anyone interested in Disney and the college program.
Devin's contribution is a little different, as Devin had already graduated. Devin's story comes across as more mature and sophisticated- but she is still a little kid at heart and appropriately blown away by working for the The Mouse at Walt Disney World. Devin's writing is also a bit more cultured and professional, as befits a English major.
Still, we have plenty of trials, tears and tribulations- and of course tons of pixie dust and happiness.
Look, the whole series is great and this is one of the best. Get it!
For any Disney fan!
