"It's a big, big world
It's easy to get lost in it..."

--Justin Bieber, "Up"

I love those lines in the lyrics. Sometimes I feel like that's what everyone's expecting. My world got very big, very fast, and a lot of people expect me to get lost in it. I grew up in a small town in Canada. I taught myself to sing in front of my bedroom mirror and to play guitar on a hand-me-dow

My Initial Reaction
So it was birthday, you know a day when I am supposed to be happy, and I am opening all my presents to see this piece of shit book staring right up at me.

I threw it out.

Literally, I took the book and proceeded to walk to the garbage bin nearest to me and throw out the book. More on impulse I did this before realizing that I threw out a book written by Justin Bieber.

A book by Justin Bieber

A BOOK BY JUSTIN BIEBER!!!!!!



After I laughed an unhealthy amount, I took the book out of

Never know how much I love you,
never know how much i care.
When you put your arms around me
I give you Bieber that's so hard to bear.

You give me Bieber
when you kiss me,
Bieber when you hold me tight.
Bieber in the morning
Bieber all through the night.

Sun lights up the day time,
moon lights up the night.
I light up when you call my name
and you know I'm gonna treat you right.

You give me Bieber
when you kiss me,
Bieber when you hold me tight.

WHEN I FIRST SAW THIS BOOK, I WAS LIKE, "HOLY FUCK, IS THIS FOR REAL?"

I WAS WALKING AROUND THE BOOKSTORE THAT UNFATEFUL DAY, WHEN I SUDDENLY SAW THIS BOOK, SHINING IN ALL OF ITS REPULSIVE GLORY, AND WITHOUT MEANING TO, I LAUGHED OUT LOUD. IT'S JUST SO WEIRD, SEEING BIEBER'S FACE SURROUNDED BY BOOKS WITH THE FACES OF MYLEY CYRUS, ROBERT PATTINSON, AND KRISTEN STEWART ON THE COVER. THEY JUST BLEND IN TOGETHER SO BEAUTIFULLY IT MAKES ME WANNA CRY

What the actual flying fuck is this?



I mean, really, what is this thing? Do we needed to see this not-male looking face even at book stores? DO WE NEEDED THIS?



I can't stand his stupid music, neither his stupid and marketable lyrics full of nonsense. And the girls actually believe he's so yabba-dabba, kind, gorgeous and yibbidy-dabbidy-do. So, just so you know my precious little things... He does this for money. All of what he does, it's to increase his popularity. No, he's not the awesometastic g

For the short hours I spent reading about the pop star, there was never a dull moment that made me want to put it down and quit reading. You should know that I've always been a Bieber fan, but never a Belieber until finishing this book. This book had a positive impact on me, this book isn't only about Justin's story along the way he does give some valuable advice that I will try to never forget.

Justin tells his story from the beginning, his birth, childhood, early teen years, and how You Tube ch

"YOU HAVE TO LET YOURSELF DO STUFF YOU'RE NOT GOOD AT."



I started reading the book and hit that line and whole paragraph on page 52 and 53. Since then I had been thinking "God, let's go on read this book!". I couldn't believe it's a Stratford little boy wrote it. But it is really him!

I don't care for you people who like him or not, never judge book by it's cover. He has some stories that worth to be told and, for us, worth-reading. There may be many people at big numbers that don't like him in

Walking around Wal-mart, I see the most amazing face cover on the front cover of some sort of reading item. Was it a calendar? Was it a magazine? NO. In fact it was the Justin Bieber book! Yes, finally someone comes up with a whole story based on him although there was a movie about him. Thinking on how thick this book was I thought I would never finish it! Well I was wrong, in fact I actually finished it within a week. I not only loved this book because it told me his background stories, but be ...more

I’m not a Justin Bieber fan, but I do recognize that his situation is unique. To rise to such stardom virtually overnight, in the most media-frenzied, paparazzi-ed age of all, is no mean feat and makes for a good story. So I picked up this book thinking it might make an interesting read.
It wasn’t.

More than a story, this reads like a chronology of facts (first this happened, then that happened, then I said that and he said this). Plus, there are constant interruptions to the actual text. Pictures

The first thing you feel is its weight in your hands, which screams, "this is an important book." "First Step 2 Forever" is a hardcover, multi-colored monstrosity that clocks in at 240 pages... half of which feature full-page pictures of the 16-year-old Bieber. This should please the majority of his pint-sized fans, who are looking for nothing more than a visual companion to Bieber's equally sugar-coated albums.

There's no way to accurately convey the inherent absurdity in reading a memoir writte

Justin Bieber: The TRUE autobiography

Hello teen or tweenage girl reading this. For the next few minutes you will undergo an activity using your brain that is called 'reading'. See? You just read that. Amazing what the mind can do, isn't it? Yes I know you're amazed. You will continue to undergo this process of reading as more and more words appear, which are built up of things called 'letters' which you might have heard about in Kindergarten.

This is a story about the latest musical sensation, J

if u dont like justin at all, i dont get why you would even read it let alone bother to write a review. and writing a review without reading it makes your review pointless and invalid anyway. i know people think differently than i do but more ppl should think like me and dont be haters and think they are so cool.

i really enjoyed this book. im not as big a fan of justin as i used to be, i kind of outgrew him a bit, but its still one of my favorite books. it reminded me of why i loved him so much(

I skimmed this book belonging to my granddaughter. It's a rather superficial glance at a young celebrity who, I discovered for the first time, is a best selling recording star. As you can tell I've never listened to his music. There are a lot of photographs and mostly first person accounts of his experiences. But not much in depth. But then he is only 16 or 17 years old. He has nice things to say about his family, and other celebrity musicians he's worked with including Taylor Swift, grieves ove ...more

Justin Bieber. What a familiar name. HOPEFULLY everyone knows who that is! If you haven't by now, you must live in a cave! Justin Bieber's autobiography, First Step 2 Forever, was one of those books I finished in only a day! This was probably prone to the fact that i am a HUGE fan with Bieber Fever but it was also because of his fascinating story. There were also many pictures of him throughout the book which i caught myself staring at for mintues. Obsessive? OF COURSE NOT. Honestly though, I lo ...more

This book is one of the best books in the world. Justin Bieber has inspired a great number of kids around the world. He is such a small town boy with a touchng story. I don't see how anyone, including guys, could read this book and not be a fan of Justin Bieber. Even if they aren't a fan of his music, you must be a fan of his personality after reading this. I learned all about his life and how he went through ups and downs. The book talked about when things were good and when things were bad and ...more

I loved this book!! I don't only say this just because i'am a Bieber fan. I say this because this book was written by him, his own words, it really shows his infamous side of him, his regular self. He uses good words and made goods jokes, cause u wouldn't want to read a book like this without a tiny bit of laughter that's just not fun! But its Justin that wrote this book, no one else so of course its going to be funny, happiness, tears, heartbreaking but that's what makes a book this good. U hav ...more

I absolutely loved this book. It really showed where Justin Bieber came from and the conditions that he grew up in. I despise people that hate on him because they have absolutely no idea where he came from. This book tells how he grew up in a very rough place. It tells about how his dad left him and his mom just 2 months after Justin was born. Justin and his mom Pattie have a very, very strong relationship. Justin and his dad Jeremy also have a strong relationship, but his dad doesn't go on tour ...more

Well... I think this book was literally AMAZING! Not just because I LOVE Justin Bieber, but because this book was written by him in a teenagers perspective! Which I totally LOVED!

If you like to here about life stories *especially Justin's...(:* than you will LOVE this book. I would consider this book to mostly only teenage girls, but guys who like Justin can read it too if they want! This book consists of Drama, Action, and a life story about a regular kid becoming the latest hit sensation, wit

Justin Bieber: First step 2 forever: My story has 236 pages and was published in 2010. Justin Bieber is the main character he is very hot,funny,nice, and amazing. The story takes place in Canada and the United States. Justin Bieber does a singing competition. He has some family and friends that were not able to to come and watch him so his mother videoed him. They put it up on YouTube so they could watch it. Then people really like it. This guy Scooter Braun called him and talked about him havi ...more

Molly wanted this for her birthday. I told her that it would be more reasonable to ask for a live pterodactyl from me. Oh, and justin, sweetie, 2 and two are completely different things. It's ok, sometimes I make silly spelling errors too when I'm on my period. Mydol messes with your head.

My reactions:
1.) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!
2.) Wow. Way to use a NUMBER in your title. Very professional/classy.
3.) I will never like you.
4.) I have absolutely zero interest in reading this book.
5.) I only rated it one star because I wanted to write this review.

THIS WAS THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ IN MY ENTIRE LIFE <3 <3 After seeing the movie I just knew that i needed to read his biography! I WAS RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEST BOOK EVR!

This is one of my favoite books that I have read this year. I would give a scale of a 10, because it has a ton of information on Justin Bieber, it has pictures of him, and it also tells his real story and what stuff he goes through.
I liked how this book made me laugh while I was reading cause it shoes how Justin is funny. Also I liked how it would show you some of the stuff the he would put on twitter, and some stuff that he put on youtube.I thought that that was cool.

Nggak nyangka saya baca buku ini sekali duduk, hahaha! Curiga nih, jangan-jangan saya masih ABG :p.

Memoar (atau semi-memoar?) ini memang enak banget dibaca. Dibuka dengan deg-degan dan membuncahnya perasaan Justin saat konser perdananya mau dimulai. Kemudian cerita mundur ke belakang. Tentang "anak biasa-biasa saja" asal Strattford, Kanada, kota kecil yang lebih dekat ke Detroit, AS. Tentang ayah dan ibu, yang saat Justin lahir, usia mereka tak jauh dari usia Justin sekarang (MBA sepertinya). T

Going into reading this book, I didn't know how much I would enjoy it. I was surprised that this was actually a great book. Even though, I haven't read many biographies, this is probably the best one I've read.

The first thing I want to share is my favorite part. It had to have been when Justin was performing for "Stratford Star". This is basically a singing competition like American Idol that took place in his hometown. I felt nervous for him because he was my age and it was his first time perfo

Oh Boy. I could write a review 12 pages long about this book if I wanted to. Something happened to me when I read this book that had never happened before. I started to get really sad when I was about to finish the book. LIke my journey with Justin Bieber was about to end. I know this sounds crazy, but this book really brings you in and you really get to know Justin Bieber. I was actually so sad to finish this book that I didn't read the last page for like 2 weeks. I knew I could read it all ove ...more

Justin Drew Bieber is a Canadian pop-R&B singer. Bieber was discovered in 2008 by Scooter Braun, who happened across Bieber's videos on YouTube and later became his manager. Braun arranged for him to meet with Usher in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bieber was soon signed to Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), a joint venture between Braun and Usher, and then to a recording contract with Island Records o ...more
