Ok, before we start to get judgemental, I must redeem myself by saying that I only read this book to gain a better opinion of a girl that I'd quite honestly only heard bad things about.

When I first saw the book, I was honestly surprised that Cyrus had gained a degree of literacy, but, we learn something new everyday.

The story documents her life from birth to her current career as a 'singer' and 'actress'. With heavy use of inverted commas. The book is broken up with sections of pictures. I credi

Honestly, I didn’t expect much when I started to read this. It was mostly out of curiosity since I would have loved her when I was 11. She discusses very real and important things for young girls such as bullying, not getting along with people you have to work with, feeling ugly and depressed, losing grandparents. She seems to take it all in stride and act as a good role model but I’m not sure how much of that is actually Cyrus and how much is her well-paid ghostwriter. She also talks about thin ...more

The autobiography describes Miley’s life before and after she received the role of Hannah Montana. Miley Cyrus grew up on a farm with her family in Tennessee. She went to many places with her father during his career and even had to live in Canada for awhile. Miley always loved to entertain guests and sometimes went on stage with her father. In sixth grade, she was bullied by a group of girls and liked to escape to her horses and competitive cheerleading to get away from the nightmare. After sev ...more

First up, I read this at a friend's sleepover, six in the morning. Sun streaming through the window, she was snoring, I didn't dare wake her up. So I grabbed a book and read.
First up--we get it, Miley. You want to look like a perfect Disney Christian. But girl, you do a lot of risque stuff and I honestly struggle to believe that you really believe in what you preach. I really struggled with the religious parts simply because they seemed so fake and staged.
There were a few nicely written parts,

Can I just say that this book, quite literally, has changed my life?

MILES TO GO changed my opinion of Miley, too. Judging only by her music and the magazines, my expectations for Miley (and the book) were pretty low. I thought, like a lot of other folks out there, that Miley had the "dream life" and was spoiled. I think there might even have been hints of jealousy in the way I regarded her.

That's completely all gone now. MILES TO GO makes Miley more real and brings her closer to her fans. Mile

I don't know why, and I can't figure it out no matter how hard I try, why I find Miley Cyrus interesting. I also find her annoying. But I find most celebs annoying. I like most of her music. The upbeat songs are fun to sing to. And her show Hannah Montana really isn't so bad. I can only watch a few episodes at once, but it's mindless entertainment. Something you can just put on in the background and not really have to pay attention to. So for whatever reason I got her book from the library. She ...more

This book is a carefully crafted lie and pity party for this spoiled child star. Claiming that she was an outcast and bullied and tormented by other kids in what she calls "operation make Miley miserable", she fails to mention that from a very early age she was brought into acting and singing by her famous father and that chances are she was popular in school. I also highly doubt that she was thrown into a small town public school. She then rants about how she's misunderstood and lonely, but at ...more

Have you ever felt like you really know someone but you've never actually met them?

This autobiography by Miley Cyrus gives you a real insight to what her life was like before fame. She re-tells her family life in Tennesee, her hellish experiences with bullies and her triumphs and failures of becoming a Disney starlet.

I opened this book expecting the usual stererotypical words of a young celebrity saying how wonderful they are. I thought the story would be bland and ordinary but was pleasantly s

I only read it as a dare and still I found it as the worst book of 2010! Who really gives a care about Miley? She CANNOT write! But the real reason I gave this book only one star is becasue of her reference to God and Jesus. She says, 'I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't know Jesus'. That is terrible. Some of her fans are NOT Christians and this may provoke them to want to convert. I am a happy and proud Muslim and I DO NOT want her opinion of God. I regret ever picking up a copy and I would not ...more

So I read this book because my little sister is a HUGE fan of Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana - and when I say huge I mean she was one of those people that spent 250 dollars to go to Miley's Sweet 16 Birthday party at Disney. She said that the book was good, but then again, this could have been the worst book ever and she would have said its good. But I read it and she was right! It is actually pretty good! I'm the kind of person that likes to know the behind the scenes kind of stuff and this gave th ...more

No soy muy fan de Miley Cyrus, a decir verdad. Pero tengo que admitir que realmente me gustó este libro. No es más que su biografía, la historia de sus 16 años. Pero creo que Miley ha atravesado por distintas experiencias que valen la pena ser contadas. Más allá de sus experiencias convirtiéndose en Hannah Montana, me ha agradado leer sus pequeñas historias que la han hecho crecer como persona y como artista. Pequeñas historias, sencillas, bonitas, agradables.

Okay. Saw this in the library. Recalled that it was in one of those listopia lists of books to avoid, so I said why not and read a few pages.

This poor child gladly ran right into the spotlights at an impressionable age, the way a fawn is too dumb to know that you shouldn't run toward the oncoming headlights, and no one stopped her.

Now she's all delusional, thinking that she paid her dues because she had to sing at a VFW once, and she believes that she is making classic timeless music that will

OVERALL IMPRESSION: I am not afraid to admit that I loved the television show Hannah Montana and was sad when it ended. This book pretty much explains how Miley Cyrus became Hanna Montana as well as her journey during and slightly after the show ended. You can definitely tell that this book was written by a younger person by the voice of the story, but I still enjoyed it and was entertained. This book will not blow you away by any means, but it was interesting to me to get an inside look at Mile ...more

This book was probably one of the worst books I've ever read in my life. But I liked it. The thing I really like about Miley Cyrus (besides her amazing, amazing songs) is that she seems so normal. She gets in trouble for doing stupid stuff that every teenaged girl does. The stories she tells are the things that your average 16-year-old imagines writing in her autobiography. Coming from one of the most famous people in the world, it's kind of refreshing. That said, there is a reason that 16-year- ...more

The book was all about mileys life.

Her Quiet days were replaced with sold out concerts, television appear ...more

Before I read this book I thought that it might have been alright, but it was a lot better than I had expected. I think it was very sincere and touching on how she has written this book and carefully filled in the pieces of her life so far.My favourite bits were when she explained how she got locked in the janiters closet in high school by the school bullies and when she met the little girl Vanessa in hospital. I think that it is very good how Miley can have the time to spend with children in ho ...more

Yeah yeah I read it back in the Hannah Montana obsession days we all went through.
Miles to Go is a story about a teenage girl named Miley Cyrus. Miley actually wrote the book her self, a.k.a it’s an autobiography. This story takes place kind of everywhere because Miley traveled a lot as she was growing up. In the beginning of the book she talked about her hometown, Nashville, Tennessee. Some of the main characters of the book are Miley’s five siblings, two sisters and three brothers. Their names are Brandi, Trace, Christopher- Cody, Braison, and Noah. Her parents also came in ...more

I really like Miley. I have from the very first Hannah Montana episode until now.

I think people are trying to find faults in her that don't really exist. You have to remember that she was 16 when she wrote this and is 22 now. People change. They grow up, they learn more and they have different opinions. You can't hold her to what she said as a child.

This book is well written and easy to read and I liked it. I like her little scribbles on the side of the pages and her photos and the stories are

The genre of this book is autobiography. It is the life story of Miley Cyrus and how she rose to fame. I choose this book because I love Miley Cyrus even though alot has benn said about her, and I wanted to hear her side of the story. The main characters in this book are Miley, her family and her friends. She starts the book back in her home town in Tennessee, back when she was just a baby. She says that her stage prescence came from being on stage all the time with her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. ...more
