Brittany Myers is stuck. She hates her role as a Cheese Crusader to Florida’s popular Cheddar and Such theme park! She is sick of the guests, the heat and working at the Fun at the Parm Attraction which features the animatronics Patty the Pretzel and Peter the Breadstick.
Her only relief from the monotony is writing chapters in her upcoming novel “The Carnival Ride” where she tells stories with theatrical scenes about her co-workers, her fears and the struggles she faces day in and day out.
With the help of her work family, the man of her dreams and her best friend, Brittany discovers that the magic she is looking for was right inside of her the entire time.

Maybe my first real job when I turned sixteen being at a theme park caused me to initially want to read this book. But once I started reading, I could not put it down. I loved getting to know Brittany Myers, her best friend Travis, and the other characters in this book.
Sometimes, we feel stuck where we are, and can not seem to move forward with our heart’s true desire. Brittany feels stuck in her job, finds herself unable to initially to get her book published, but she continues writing. Eventually, she discovers that her heart’s desires have been right in front of her.
This story moved along at a good pace, and kept my interest. I also loved the inclusion of the dialogue from Brittany’s book she is writing. I also appreciated how Brittany continues writing and submitting her work until she finally receives an acceptance letter.
So check out this book for yourself. I definitely recommend it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Sunshine
“This book is about…me. I spent over 5 years working at a theme park, barely surviving the mess, the mayhem and the craziness that often occurred on-stage and backstage. I used that immersive experience to write my novel, “The Characters Within.” This story is about Brittany Myers, a Cheese Crusader who has to wear this silly costume and repeat these corny sayings and hear the same annoying tunes playing over and over again. But she really wants to be an Author.
And that’s where I found myself. At a backstage break room, writing this book as Brittany was writing hers. I have included 35 real-life people as characters (those who survived the madness with me!) and together we invite you to join us…as I now lift the curtain to “The Characters Within” – a Book-within-a-Book, Part Musical, Part Love Story and 100% pure entertainment!”
