Some say, “Curiosity killed the cat” but I say, “Not this time!” What am I talking about? Well, I checked out Justin Bieber’s memoir, Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever, and liked it!
I am at an age where Justin Bieber’s music rarely gets played in my house, so the idea of reading his book was a little out there. I may not be a fan of his music, but I was curious as to how this kid was shot to the insane stardom he lives in.
This large book, well over 200 pages, is full of top quality Bieber pictures; pictures that will make any fan with the “fever” go giggly and googly eyed over. The biggest perk of out of all the pictures? The front pull-off book cover opens into a poster. This should please all those fans out there!
Now, to the real juicy stuff! Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever was written by Justin, and I really enjoyed his point-of-view. A lot of books about celebrities are written by authors and not the stars themselves; but Justin wrote this book and I really appreciated it.
Bieber wrote from his heart, and took the time to detail his musical beginnings for all of his fans out there. His personality, heart, and humor all jump out of the pages. I learned a great deal about his shot to stardom, and how it affects not only him, but his friends and family. He truly loves all of his fans, and most importantly, he loves his family.
The only real critique I have is that this book is not written by an experienced author. I could easily tell that this was written by a teenager. After a few dozen, “dudes” I was ready to put this book down, but I stuck it out. If the adult readers can look past the obvious teenaged point-of-view writing, they will enjoy learning about Bieber’s exciting young life.
To conclude, I still do not like Justin Bieber’s music, but I grew to appreciate him on a different level. Bieber is just a kid who loves his family, and he loves all the fans. This book was definitely written with Bieber’s fans in mind, and I think they will love every single word… and picture!
