With decades of experience, Gaglini was able to state her case about the exploits of child/teenage stars in a digestible, entertaining, and informative way. It is easy to tell that this topic is close to Gaglini’s heart, as you can hear both sympathy for child-stars throughout the book’s pages, along with tasteful disgust to production companies, corporations benefiting from child-actors, mislead parents, unenforced laws, and conflicts of interest that arise when children are put to work on the stage.
I suggest this book for any parent who is interested in giving their child a shot at their dreams. It is a down-to-earth read that tackles every detail of the process, from the thought of driving your child to constant auditions, to the potential bankruptcy that signing the wrong contract could lead you to. Buying this book is a no-brainer, since you are getting a successful attorney to give you her career’s worth of knowledge and opinions in the field for $20!
Uniquely suited to be able to understand the industry 360° on behalf of a burgeoning labor force of unemancipated hopefuls who have no ability under the law to give “informed consent,” and having represented both child stars and companies, Ms. Gaglini offers a behind-the-scenes tell all. Combining her skills gleaned as a seasoned negotiator, a specialist in the area of entertainment law, and as a guardian ad litem, Ms. Gaglini’s read is guaranteed not to disappoint as it promises to set the new gold standard as a bible on entertainment law on behalf of children. Parents – don’t leave home and sign a contract on your child’s behalf without having read this opus.
