Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: : My Story Kindle Edition
"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.
About the Author
Born in Stratford, Ontario, Justin first broke into the music industry when music manager Scooter Braun spotted his performances on YouTube and then joined forces with superstar Usher to sign thirteen-year-old Justin to a record deal with Island Def Jam Music Group.
Justin's latest number 1 album, Believe, came out in June 2012. It follows his number 1 Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe, which was Justin's third number 1 debut in just 18 months. This incredible achievement makes Justin the youngest artist in Billboard history to have a holiday album enter at number 1 and then first solo artist in Billboard history to chart three number 1 albums before his 18th birthday. Prior to Under the Mistletoe, Justin's first album My World 2.0 debuted at number 1 in the charts and featured the single 'Baby', which remains the number 1 most-viewed YouTube video, with currently over 700 million views. Never Say Never: The Remixes, the soundtrack to the highest domestic-grossing concert film in US history, also entered at number 1 in 2011.
Just Getting Started is Justin's second book, following on from the international bestseller First Step 2 Forever: My Story.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More than a story, this reads like a chronology of facts (first this happened, then that happened, then I said that and he said this). Plus, there are constant interruptions to the actual text. Pictures. Tweet-quotes. Big bold headliner quotes that appear every few pages. Too much to ask that you read every word? Don't worry, we'll feed you the headliners so you can quote than and pretend you read it cover to cover.
Most of all, I didn't feel like I got to know the person writing at all, so the whole point of calling this an autobiography was lost on me. Hell, I felt like I got to know him better in last month's Rolling Stone feature. Little content, no depth, unimaginative boring language. There wasn't a lot to work with. To give you an example of what you're in for, here's a word-by-word quote of Bieber describing how he met his two principle dancers: "At first I didn't know if I wanted them to be part of my wolf pack. But as soon as I go to know them, I definitely wanted them to be part of my wolf pack." End quote. I kid you not.
It dawned on me towards the end that maybe this wasn't meant to be a book as much as a fan manual. The "I like" section was a give away: Bullet-pointed conversation tips for what you should or shouldn't ask Justin, prefaced by `Here are some of the questions that will get an actual conversation going for me.' Thanks Justin, we'll be sure to learn them up before the next concert.
As an artist, Justin Bieber has achieved a lot, and I'm not trying to take away from any of that. I'm not here passing value judgement on him as a person or his music. I'm just saying: He's no writer. So consider this note a statutory warning: don't read this book.
I'm just happy it's encouraged her to read books!
Good value for money
