Now that everyone's favorite Mouseketeer has passed away, I thought readers might want to read her heartwarming autobiography which traces her years at the Mickey Mouse Club, to becoming a beach bunny starring in bikini beach movies, to becoming a singer in her 40s, and her life on and off the stage. After her diagnosis with multiple sclerosis, she decided to make this public knowledge so that her adoring fans could learn of her story.

I "read" this on tape and sobbed my guts out. Annette seems to be the sweet, friendly woman who we ALL wish lived next door to us. That damned disease is a bastard and there is no nice way to say it. A real eye-opening read...should be required reading in schools.

ANNOTATION
Annette Funicello grew up before America's eyes, first a Mousketeer, then the star and reigning sweetheart of the classic beach party movies of the Fifties. In her engaging, anecdotal autobiography, Annettee looks with wit and wonder on a near-charmed life in show business, and candidly discusses her recent battle with multiple sclerosis. Photos.

"Funicello tells the story of her rapid rise in vivid detail and with considerable wit...Dream is proof that the truce source of her stardom has always been her unbreakable spirit." --People

"A nostalgic advantage...Her story is one of courage and humility recounted at times with self-effacing humor and sometimes perceptive assessments." --Orlando Sentinel

Heartwarming book with a touch of surreal. It is hard to understand why someone so beautiful inside could be handed such ugly at times. Wonderful book. One I would read over and over.
