Stay happy, stay weird, and don't let anyone take away your smile.


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 love Miles to Go but when Miley went and started doing drugs and P O R N I totally lost faith in her. Selena Gomez on the other hand is perfectly fine

I thought this review summed up the story perfectly. I agree that the style and voice of the writing was as if she were talking to you personally. Sometimes I wonder if there is a side to the teen sensation that the media won't tell us about - this book shows that.    Although Miley has seemed to change her values in the years since she wrote the book, I wonder if there is still a part of that sensitive young girl inside.    Thanks for a great review. :)

I think this review was really good! It did exactly what book reviews are supposed to do, I got interested in a book I would never even think about reading. . I am not a Miley fan but I have nothing against her. I like her music and I think she is a great actress. But this review changed my view towards her, now I just like her more!

I understand. This review is from years ago when she was a better role model. Sad to see her this way.

For some reason I've always like Miley, there is just something about her. After this great review I will be checking this book out of the library! Well done :)

Ghost writer means somebody helped write the book for her. In addition, they may have written white lies in it.

Well, I disagree with your opinon,  as she isn't the best role model and has done stupid and inappropriate stuff already, among other things. Also, most of her songs don't actually mean that much. About your writing--the fact that you said "anyone would love them" seems pretty cocky to me. I'll stop lamenting and wasting my time as I'm sure you don't agree with a person who responds negatively to you, and anyways, to each his own.

While Miley may be really talented, she certainly doesn't live out the Christian values she claims to believe in . . in light of the clothes she wears, who she hangs out with, the whole pole dancing & bad pix thing.... dating an underwear model & making out on the beach. I realize it's hard for kids to stay straight in Hollywood, so maybe it's better if their parents show more responsibility for them. And why would she call herself a Christian if she can't take a stand up for what's right? It's easy to dress and act like everyone else; it takes real courage to be different
