Mousetrapped is a fluffy read written by an Irish girl who doesn't know what she wants to do with her life, so she decides to move to Florida and work at Walt Disney World. The book couldn't really decide what it wanted to be: part memoir, part travelogue, part soapbox. The memoir parts were funny and entertaining, the travelogue parts were a bit dry, and the soapbox parts were just annoying. The book almost gives the impression of being self-published, since I think a real editor would have taken out the boring parts and encouraged more of the witty and funny parts. It's not a book to buy, but if you happen to see it in the library (or if you can get it on Kindle for less than $3, like I did) it's worth the quick read. Just be prepared to skip through the slower parts.
