Description - Living the Dream by Susan Janic
Miley Cyrus, the daughter of country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, persisted in auditioning for the Hannah Montana role, was consistently turned away but nonetheless kept picking herself up, dusting herself off and trying again. And that persistence paid off. Miley was cast as Hannah - the TV pop superstar who is trying to balance her celebrity with a normal life as Miley Stewart, thus living a secret identity along the lines of Clark Kent and Superman - and Hannah instantly connected with the television audience, which turned the character and Miley herself into a sensation. Living the Dream tells the story of the auditions, the casting of Hannah Montana, and what was involved in creating the Stewart family. There's a look at the phenomena outside of the show: the CDs, the concert tours (including photos from fans), and the buzz on the upcoming movie. An episode guide reveals the story behind the scenes, as well as things to watch for in each episode to date, and a news diary tracks the rise of the Miley/Hannah phenomenon. Plus there's more than a hundred full-colour photos.
