Many people believe a person’s name is their destiny, and it seems true for a woman named Bambi working for Walt Disney Studios. Recounting her journey from music lover to Disney music producer and executive, Moé (music business studies, California Polytechnic Univ., Pomona) takes readers on a pop culture trip that’s as lively and layered as the projects she produced. From meeting Michael Jackson during one of his secret trips to Disney studios to playing with a young Drew Barrymore and sitting alongside Joni Mitchell at a gathering, the stories in this memoir bring readers into her brushes with greatness. For any ’90s kid, the vast number of referenced personalities makes for a fun, trivia-style read, while Moé’s friendly, candid recollections feel like a chat with a new friend who has a million stories to tell.
VERDICT A quick, engaging read that’s perfect for anyone who loves Disney or ’90s pop culture or who wants an inside look at the music and film industry from a singular perspective.
