Overview

This biography reveals the full story behind Swift’s preteen acting career, her early song writing efforts and her attempts to break into the music business as a youngster.

 

Details the vicious bullying and crippling exclusion she experienced at the hands of school classmates and how – as a social outcast – she turned to music to heal the pain. An exclusive interview is included with one of Taylor’s tormentors, who apologizes for causing distress.

 

Covers Taylor’s rise from a misunderstood writer to a multiplatinum selling artist. Features the inside story on her high profile relationships (including one with Joe of the Jonas Brothers) as well as her video editing, clothes designing, poetry, acting roles and charity campaigns.

 

Includes unusual facts about Taylor including her experiments with rap, hip-hop and death metal music, her meeting with Jay-Z as an unknown artist at age 11 and her collaboration with heavy rock group Def Leppard, where the unlikely pair of acts covered each other’s songs.

 

Exclusive interviews with family friends, school friends, teachers, ex-boyfriends. and many more.

    Great book

    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..
