A Review of Miles to go, an autobiography by Miley Cyrus.
Miley Cyrus, known by many across the globe as the world's most famous teenager, released this autobiography at the age of only sixteen. Her rise to fame came a mere two or three years previous to writing this book, as the star of kids TV show 'Hannah Montana', playing the character of Miley Stewart and her alter ego pop/rockstar Hannah Montana.
The book itsself contains a fairly in-depth look into the life of the young star so far, with her recollecting stories of being bullied in sixth grade, making friends with a very young girl who suffered from Cysitc Fibrosis, losing her beloved 'Pappy' and all about her experiences in the media spotlight.
It is clear from the beginning that Miley has a very unique, but very engaging writing style. Her use of metaphors such as where she uses her ambidexterity to show she is not to be categorised or stereotyped into just one group of being an actress, being a singer etc. These metaphors and other ways in which the young author enables the reader to understand exactly what it is she is trying to portray her ideas and feelings present a feeling of character throughout the book, allowing for a likeability factor in terms of how the reader views the bubbly teenager from Tennesse.
The book contains much information about the young star's life, her love for family, Nashville (where she grew up), animals and her friends. Despite the age of Cyrus, there is little doubt that she has been through a lot; and with the account of all these experience within the 270 page book, it deffinately makes for a good read.
Miley shows throughout the biography that despite the way in which the media portrays her; she is infact a fantastic rolemodel for children. She shows that eventhough she has become a huge star with a large bank ballance, she still remains down to earth, keeps her morals, believes so strongly in both her religion and family values and sets a great example for the youth of today. All of this and the bubbly, humerous Tennesse character that invokes a likeability factor onto the audience for her.
If you are looking for a bubbly, funny book with a family feel to it then there is no need to look any further. 'Miles to go' - Miley Cyrus
