Miles to Go took me on a road trip through the life of a girl I thought I already knew everything about. Boy, was I wrong. With every sentence, I felt like Miley was talking to me, having a sister-to-sister chat. She wrote this book with her heart, and that is why it is so meaningful.

Miley is not a cookie-cutter celebrity, like many say. She knows where she came from and won’t forget it. She lives by her values and holds onto her strong faith.

Miley’s family is always her top priority. While she may be famous and live in L.A., who she is hasn’t changed. If her little sister, Noah, wants her to stay home and watch a movie, Miley will. Even if Miley gets invited to a celebrity party, it’s clear that she will choose her family first.

My favorite part of the book was when she talks about Vanessa, a girl who was, as Miley puts it, “the sister God forgot to give me.” Vanessa was a 9-year-old suffering from cystic fibrosis. Miley met her at a hospital and they became instant friends. Miley kept in contact with her family and often visited Vanessa at the hospital or called when she was on tour. One day Miley called only to find out that Vanessa’s time on Earth had ended. Miley was devastated. She immediately got off the tour bus and lay down in a frozen field. This was when Miley realized how much she had needed Vanessa, and how important it is to love every day and not take it for granted. This was just one of Miley’s many beautiful stories.

Somewhere between introducing us to Pappy Cyrus, who changed so many lives, learning to accept her “cankles,” and sharing her love for eating eggs with syrup, Miley connects with readers. For someone so young, Miley is one of the most brilliant people I have ever seen. Her fame hasn’t changed her; she stays grounded with the help of her family and her faith.

When this book came out, I became Miley’s number-one fan all over again. In reading Miles to Go, I felt like a part of the family.

I have to admit that before I bought Miles to Go, I wasn't sure how I felt about Miley Cyrus. When I finished it, my thoughts on her completely changed-she's actually a great person. I also felt like she was talking to me, like we were best friends. I couldn't put it down. Great article :)

I've submitted 2 weeks ago and they've never responded.

Week by week slowly passes by, dead leaves fall on the ground, adventure springs at your nose, clouds turn white and black with a sight of heavan or destruction.

Well, humans are naturally curious so we teens or college students would look at anything that could consume time effectivly.

We're protestors against her because I've seen her act (the other characters are funny) but miley ruins it.

I agree with you because miley is a hard headed and wants only money lady because she sings and writes a book and actor.

Co lavur! Heya kelba! GRRR..

Is there a point to your rudeness? If you don't like Miley Cyrus then why would you read a review about her, and then take the time to make a comment. Is it necessary? Not at all. You're obviously just looking for attention.

Democracy... while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.

true that american pop music does suck and that miley is not my favorite but i think that she is still a child and needs love and effection
