    Miley Cyrus to tell her story

    Arts, Briefly
    A Bookish Miley Cyrus

    By Motoko Rich
    Compiled by Lawrence Van Gelder
    The New York Times
    Published: April 22, 2008
    Having dominated cable television and the concert circuit, and coming soon to the cineplex, Miley Cyrus, the 15-year-old star of the Disney Channel series “Hannah Montana,” has agreed to write a book about her early life in Tennessee, her move to Los Angeles and the influence of her parents — especially her mother — on her success.

    In a seven-figure deal, Disney Book Group acquired the rights to Ms. Cyrus’s book, to be published by the Disney-Hyperion Books imprint in spring 2009, when the Hannah Montana movie is also scheduled for release. Jeanne Mosure, global publisher of Disney Book Group, said the company had already sold 15 million copies of some 60 Hannah Montana-branded titles worldwide, including novelizations and gift books about the show. She said the new book would have an initial print run of one million copies.

    “It’s rare that you hear from someone her age that they want to talk about their family,” Ms. Mosure said. “How she sees her family in light of everything that she’s exposed to on a daily basis is pretty incredible.”

    i've actually read multiple places that it was miley's idea to audition for the show, and she originally auditioned for the best friend role.

    ^ You are correct.

    I'd actually like to see Billy Ray and his wife write a book on how to raise a well-rounded family in the limelight and a well-rounded child star.

    I suspect that this book will be roughly the size of a pamphlet. She's 15 - her life experiences could be summed up in an essay.

    My thoughts entirely.........maybe it will be the size of a Disneyland resort brochure with show times and schedules.....

    She's 15 - what could she possibly have to 'say'? Maybe something like this would be worthy when she is like, oh, 75.....

    Re: Miley Cyrus to tell her story

    I just had to roll my eyes. A 15 year old has enough life experiences to write her memoirs now?

    Don't get me wrong, she should do everything to make as much money as she can now, because at some point in the next few years her fame is going to slip away. What's going to happen to her then? Many child stars who were perfect while in the limelight find that life isn't so easy once nobody cares about them anymore.
