(Newser) Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus, 15, has signed a seven-figure deal with Disney-Hyperion for a memoir, the New York Times reports today. The book will focus on her childhood in Tennessee and the positive influence of her mother on her career. It is scheduled to be released in spring 2009, coinciding with the upcoming Hannah Montana film.

“It’s rare that you hear from someone her age that they want to talk about their family,” said Disney Book group's global publisher. “How she sees her family in light of everything that she’s exposed to on a daily basis is pretty incredible.”
