    1. There are too many books, and life is too short to waste reading this garbage. I'll wait for the video(s).

    2. I'm not sure what to rate this book, because I didn't take it seriously and it was pretty much what I expected. If you're wondering what to think of Carrie Prejean and this book, let me give you a quote: "There are few women I respect more than Sarah Palin[.:]" If you also respect Sarah Palin, this is definately the book for you. If you don't respect Sarah Palin, this might still be the book for you. ;DI'm sure there are people who have given this book to young girls in an attempt to show them a [...]

    3. This is a very opinionated book by a very conservative "woman". Although I am fairly liberal, I am open to reading opposing views. However, this reads similar to that of a teenage tantrum. The writing level alone is borderline insulting, maybe 5th grade reading level? She is offended and violated by the names she has been called because of her beliefs, BUT turns around and does it to others in the book? I'm working on finishing the last thirty pages, but it's very difficult. Let's just say the c [...]

    4. I personally despise liberals and found this to be a Very Good book about Carrie Prejeans ordeal as Miss Californiad although Carrie almost crosses the line into Bible Thumping; I share and respect her viewpoints about marriage and found her book to be very genuine and refreshing. In fact after reading, I truly believe Carrie exemplifies a person with unique character and is exactly what I imagine a real woman to be. The only unfortunate aspect of this story which I now find myself considering, [...]

    5. It was interesting to read Carrie's side of the story, especially because I dind't really follow the story in the media, I only knew enought that she had her crown taken away and she had to answer a question about marriage.The book was to be expected in that it was mostly Carrie telling her side of the story, defending herself, and coming off as she did nothing wrong. I liked her point about the liberal media vs. conservatives and found some truth in it. Her last chapter encourages girls and wom [...]

    6. I picked this book up recently after coming across some of Carrie Prejean's interviews on YouTube. I actually enjoyed this book, and found it to be quite an eye opener. Whether you agree with Prejean's views or not, her right to freedom of speech does stand, and she was discriminated against because she exercised that right. At times she does come off as bitter and immature, but one has to remember she is young, and what she went through was not easy. It was an interesting read, and I would reco [...]

    7. This book would be useful for a teenage girl who might be feeling pressured to go against her values or is confused even about what values are important to her. I think then, yes she would benefit from this book. Other than that, it was interesting to read about the behind-the-scenes world of pagentry and some of the obstacles Carrie has had to overcome, but I wish the truth truth would come out can she really be as innocent as she comes off in this book? I would hope so.

    8. It was inspiring and uplifting. The last few chapters were the absolute best when she offers advice to young people based on what she learned from her mistakes. I am really impressed by this young woman by her courage, strength, dignity, and her ability to write with such eloquence. She has a beautiful heart as well as being beautiful on the outside.

    9. Couldn't wait for this book to come out after hearing about her story. I got it the day it came out & was amazed by what all she went through. This is truly a great true life story and intrigued me so much. Never stop standing up for your beliefs. I'd love to read it again!

    11. An interesting story worth examining if you were intrigued by the "scandal" that surrounded it. Not the best writing I've ever read, but Prejean never claimed to be Jane Austen. Overall an okay book.

    12. Still think there isn't a militant hate-filled gay agenda in this country? Give this book a read.
