This Episode was Special
28 June 2017 | by xdracox-792-24755See all my reviews

A truly special episode.

I originally thought it was gonna be Lily jealous of Miley's success as Hannah, but as the story continued as it was Miley wishing for just Hannah's life I was hooked in more.

This was truly a special episode and it tapped into the elements of a persons emotions. You felt what Hannah felt.

A one of a kind episode.

I highly recommend this episode to anyone starting into Hannah Montana.
