To 17-year-old Cassie Bernall, walking into the library of her surburban high school on 20 April, 1999, it was an ordinary day. How could she know that by the end of the hour, her two classmates would storm the school, guns blazing, and kill as many people as they could, including her? As the wounded were carried from the bloody scene, several stories of bravery emerged, but one spread faster and farther than the rest. Confronted by her killers, Cassie was asked, 'Do you believe in God?' She answered, 'Yes'. SHE SAID YES is an unflinchingly honest account of a teenager's dangerous path to self discovery, her parents' extreme efforts to save her and of her tragic death at the hands of those whose fantasy world she had broken away from. Cassie is already known to many as a modern martyr, but her story is more intriguing and complex than simply her brave choice to acknowledge her faith even under the most extreme circumstances. Cassie had endured a tumultuous and conflicted adolescence, and became involved with a group of friends who dabbled in the occult and had murderous fantasies of their own. Just how she broke away from this influence, the screaming matches with her concerned parents and her ultimate life changing choices are all dramatically brought to life by her mother in this searing and soul-searching memoir. SHE SAID YES is a story of growing up in the '90s, of peer pressure, adolescent turmoil, and the tough choices parents make. It is the story of a mother's loss - of dreams and hopes dashed by the cruel reality of death at an early age. But it is also a story of redemption more enduring than the tragedy that cut a young life short.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger This story teaches a striking lesson to parents and young people everywhere.
Johann Christoph Arnold, author of Seeking Peace She Said Yes is gripping, challenging, and encouraging. Gripping because of the drama. Challenging, because it reminds us how important it is to live each day as if it were our last. Encouraging, because it shows that even the most strained family relationship can be saved by love.
The Denver Post A highly personal tale of...a teenager's search for her identity, and hope...during the darkest days.
People The story is far more complicated and enlightening than the tiny martyrdom imposed on Cassie after her death....A poignant wake-up call to parents.
Publishers Weekly She Said Yes shows how a troubled teenager can be helped, though Misty Bernall doesn?t hold back when describing the emotional toll the process can take. Although she doesn?t see her daughter as a martyr, Bernall concludes that Cassie?s death was, indeed, a triumph of honesty and courage. This powerful memoir honors that courage and reveals Misty Bernall?s own.
Christianity Today A story that will chill the heart of every parent, but also bring a strong gust of hope.
New York Post Gripping....It?s hard to think of a book that so plainly or powerfully provides families with wisdom for surviving conflict with their souls and sanity intact.
Time We expect martyrs to be etched in stained glass, not carrying a backpack and worrying about their weight and their finals. Cassie?s is a mystery story, the story of a girl lost to bad friends and drugs and witchcraft and all the dark places of teenage rebellion.
The New York Times Though her final act might strike people as extraordinary...she was in many ways just another teenager.
Chicago Tribune From time to time, an example of true moral heroism shows us a case in which someone has the wisdom to recognize a moral imperative and the fortitude to act upon it. When the case involves someone as young and courageous as Cassie Bernall, it is more than heartening; it is humbling and awe-inspiring.
