HANNAH MONTANA

Category: Edition 2006

Synopsis

Miley Stewart, a 14-year-old originally from Tennessee, now lives in Malibu, California, with her older brother Jackson and widowed father Robby, a songwriter. With her best friends Lilly and Oliver, Miley traverses the intricate web of school life – from getting good grades, to impressing her crush, to being accepted by the various social cliques. Miley can always count on her dad who can help make any situation better. As awkward as Miley sometimes feels as a teenager, she undergoes a transformation when performing on stage. Unbeknownst to the students in her school, Miley lives a double life as pop singer Hannah Montana. She travels the world, entertaining fans with the music written by her manager-dad. A blonde wig combined with a pop star style allows Miley to keep her identity as a star a secret – and most importantly, she knows that she is liked for who she really is.
