Summary

"There are multiple sides to all of us. Who we are and who we might be if we follow our dreams."

-Miley Cyrus





Three years ago, Miley Cyrus was a virtual unknown. Her life in rural Tennessee was filled with family, friends, school, cheerleading, and the daily tasks of living on a farm. And then came a little show called Hannah Montana .



Almost overnight, Miley would rocket to superstardom, becoming a television and singing phenomenon. Quiet days were replaced with sold-out concerts, television appearances, and magazine shoots. But through it all, Miley has remained close to her family and friends and has stayed connected to the Southern roots that made her so strong.



In Miles to Go, Miley offers an honest, humorous, and often touching story of one girl's coming-of-age--from private moments with her pappy to off-roading with her dad, Billy Ray, to her run-ins with mean girls. Miley talks about suffering through drama and heartbreak and coming out the other end unscathed (relatively). And now for the first time, she will discuss it all-the milestones still left to reach (driver's license! voting!), dreams to live out (travel to Asia! find true love!), and the lessons to be learned (remembernig to enjoy every moment!).



This is a truly unique look inside the world of one of today's biggest and brightest stars as she tackles looking back and moving forward.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Cyrus divides her candid if somewhat circuitous autobiography into three sections or "miles." Incorporating details about her time in and out of the spotlight, the teen discusses, with considerable dramatic flair, both the high notes (landing the title role on Hannah Montana, her close family bonds, her much ballyhooed 16th-birthday celebration at Disneyland) and the low (the "social hell" of sixth grade, the death of her beloved grandfather, her breakup with "Prince Charming"). Cyrus's reflections on her celebrity status are also balanced. She acknowledges missing out on the "fun parts of being a normal teenager" yet concludes, "I found my dream early. I'm living it." Tween-pleasing flourishes include behind-the-scenes Hannah Montana minutiae, lyrics, lists of her likes and aspirations, "handwritten" asides in the margins ("Let's keep that between us, though") and the occasional sentence that runs in large bold type, lending the effect of a magazine pull quote. Cyrus doubles back over some terrain-following one's dreams is a recurring theme-but fans will find this an effortless and entertaining read. Ages 8-12. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
