Disney has found a new starring vehicle for Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus: The company snatched rights to the young adult novel Wings and has plans to develop the title around Cyrus, according to Variety. The story, originally written by Aprilynee Pike, will revolve around Cyrus playing Laurel, a 15-year-old girl who grows up home-schooled in a small town before heading off to a large high school. There, she realizes she's unlike the other kids, as she sprouts a pair of wings and realizes she's a fairy. The book was originally published in May and is planned to be just the beginning of a four-title series. Cyrus is currently shooting The Last Song, an adaptation of the novel Nicholas Sparks wrote.
