Overview

Country pop phenomenon Taylor Swift came from a comfortable Pennsylvania home but set her sights on Nashville early. As a young teenager she won a national poetry competition, wrote her first song and a short novel. Entranced by country music, she and her family finally moved to music city in 2003. At the age of 14 Taylor Swift became the youngest staff songwriter ever hired by Sony/ATV Tree publishing. By 2006 her first single had reached number six in Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart and after that - and three huge-selling albums - there was no stopping her. This insightful book about Taylor Swift's short but extraordinary life to date includes the inside story on the high-profile romances that inspired her songs as well as exclusive, in-depth interviews with her childhood friends and early mentors.

If you are looking to buy this book, i would highly reccomend doing so. It talks about Taylor Swifts life and growing up. I do have to warn you that the book does have a few misspelled words. Such as they spell the word favorite favourite. That is really the only issue as far as i know..

First of all, Taylor was born in Wyomissing, Pensylvania not Nashville, Tenesee. Nashville is where her career began not where she is from DUH!

My mom has some friends who went to school with taylor swift. And they all said that all she does is tries to get in bed with boys and then when they break up with her she writes a song about it. And she use to blame it on her friends that the boy cheated on taylor with her friend. I mean come on thats pethtic. And a boy cant love you if all yall do us have sex..
