Today on One Girl’s Dream, we have Barbie from Disney Musings with a great review of a book I am now wanting to read! Check it out…
Kate Abbott’s book is well written and thoughtful; about a thirteen year old girl struggling to figure out who she is. Casey is on vacation with her parents at Disneyland, where through crazy circumstances, she bumps into a fifteen year old boy and they innocently spend their time together with and without their families, touring the parks, enjoying the rides and getting to know one another. There’s a lot of Disney trivia thrown in for good measure.
I found myself completely engrossed in the story, reading aloud descriptive paragraphs to my husband, and quizzing him on the chapter titles. Each chapter named “more or less on a famous Disney slogan, song, attraction, show or spiel.” (The answers were at the end of the book!)
Although the book is written for a specific group, young adults or tweens, I truly enjoyed reading this. It is a fun, heartfelt story, sometimes hitting close to home, it made the tale that much more believable.
