Dream Factory by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler

Call number: Juvenile Young Adult Collection PZ7.B250583 2007

Recommended by: Kurumi Shimada, International student from Japan, Haggerty English Language Program

The book title is Dream Factory and it was written by Brad Barkley and Heather Hepler. This story began when the character actors at Disney World went on strike, and teens were hired on behalf of them immediately. One ordinarily girl, Ella, was assigned the role of Cinderella, and that reason is simple because she fits the Cinderella’s shoe. She falls in love with Luke, who plays the character of Dale, and he also falls in love with Ella. Before they are hired at Disney World, their image of Disney was a dream land and a very pleasant place, but after being hired, their image changed. They wondered why this is the happiest place on earth, and they realized that it is hard to make a dream world. However, they supported each other and they are accomplished their task.

I think this book for girl teenagers, but I could enjoy reading it because I only knew Disney as a dreamland. If you want to know the backstage of Disney World, you should read this book. You can know how the character actors feel and you might change your image about Disney World.
