"It's a big, big world
It's easy to get lost in it..."

—Justin Bieber, "Up"

I love those lines in the lyrics. Sometimes I feel like that's what everyone's expecting. My world got very big, very fast, and a lot of people expect me to get lost in it. I grew up in a small town in Canada. I taught myself to sing in front of my bedroom mirror and to play guitar on a hand-me-down. My mom posted my first videos on YouTube. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I'd sell millions of records, sing for the president of the United States and sell out a massive arena tour. So no, I'm not lost. Not at all. If anything, onstage in front of my fans, I'm home. I'm found. And that's what this book is about: my journey, from singing and busking on the sidewalk in Stratford, Ontario, to performing and showing my appreciation to millions of fans all over the world for making this dream a reality.

My music and lyrics give a glimpse of what's in my heart, but I think this book is a window into my world. In here are hundreds of pictures of me that no one's ever seen before, and I'll tell you about who I was before I joined forces with Scooter Braun and Usher and got a record deal, and who I've become since I've been blessed with the opportunity to share my music with the world. This is my gift to you, the fans who've supported and been with me on this amazing journey every step of the way.

Review:

"Bieber, the platinum-selling singer/songwriter with the hair that launched a thousand trips to the salon, debuts with an account of his 16-year-old life that's cheeky yet entirely in line with his safe and wholesome image. Published while Bieber is headlining a major North American tour, the book covers his upbringing in Ontario, his early introduction to music, YouTube stardom, his love of pranks, and the stratospheric success he now enjoys--all interspersed with lyrics, tweets, and numerous full-bleed photographs of Bieber in all his brown-eyed glory. Although Bieber's insights, as he gives props to his family, God, and Usher, are wholly conventional, there's no reason to think that the faithful won't eat up every behind-the-scenes tidbit and his message to 'Get out of your comfort zone and go for it.' Ages 6 — 12. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

For the first time ever, global superstar Justin Bieber tells all in his very own book. He chronicles his amazing journey from small-town schoolboy to international superstardom. Jam-packed with exclusive unseen photos of Justin on and off stage. Full color.

About the Author

Born in Stratford, Ontario, Justin Bieber is a multi-talented pop/soul singer and a self-taught musician. After spotting his performances on YouTube, music manager Scooter Braun introduced Justin to the music industry and later joined forces with superstar Usher to sign thirteen-year-old Justin to a record deal with Island Def Jam Music Group.

His first album, My World, was certified platinum within three months of its release and went on to be the first debut album ever to have seven songs chart on the Billboard Top 100. His latest album, My World 2.0, debuted at #1 on the charts and has gone on to sell more than five million copies worldwide and still counting.

This #1 debut made Justin the youngest male solo artist to top the Billboard chart since Stevie Wonder in 1963.

BookHeaven, February 25, 2013 (view all comments by BookHeaven)
Five stars isn't enough for this book, it deserves a hundred. This books is inspirational and if your a Belieber, this book will make your heart swell with pride. Justin, is THE most inspirational human living and breathing on this earth. I cried reading his story and his mum, Pattie Mallette, is a sweetheart, from what I've read from this book I can only wish that she was my mum. Justin made me believe that there is hope, that I can do what I think is impossible; if I just believe. I have come to the conclusion that I can be famous, I can share my voice with the world and I can be who I wish to be. Since I bought this book, estimated, I have read this book over a hundred times. The £20 I spent was totally worth it.

This is truly an inspirational book. I would recommend this to anyone who believes in their dreams and to everyone who supports Justin. I enjoyed reading it and I hope others did too. It gives you an idea of how his life is like backstage, without all the cameras. This book made me believe that no matter where you come from, you should keep going and believing in either yourself, your dreams, or whatever it may be...
