Is It Any Good?
As in Groundhog Day or It's a Wonderful Life, the protagonist gets a different perspective on his/her life and gets a second chance to make it work; but this situation has special poignancy here. It relates to the central conflict of many women's lives, and many men's, too: the balance between work and family. Pamela's struggle, as Pam Two, to make her writing assignment into something meaningful about the modern woman, is a metaphor for her experience. So is her Pam Two nightie, with "Tic Toc Tic" on the front.
What Pam learns from experiencing her "what if" helps to turn her from someone who recites affirmations to herself every morning to someone who truly learns to value herself enough to connect to someone else. ME MYSELF I opens with young girls telling us their dreams -- fashion designer, supermodel, wife and mother. Pam asks her own daughter (well, Pam Two's daughter) about her dreams, but she is content for the moment to be open to everything.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
