Publisher Comments:

"One of the most gripping stories to come out of the shooting at Columbine High School"

is told in the acclaimed national bestseller that illuminates the most remarkable aspect of 17-year-old Cassie Bernall's tragic death: her life.

She Said Yes is an "intense and fascinating memoir" (Publishers Weekly) of an ordinary teenager growing up in suburban Colorado, and faced — as all teenagers are — with difficult choices and pressures. It is only now, when the world knows Cassie Bernall as one of the Columbine High students killed by two rampaging schoolmates, that the choices she made offer a profound relevance for us all. Once a rage-filled young woman who walked a path similar to that of her killers, Cassie found a way out of her personal snares and, through her faith and a family's love, chose to embrace life with courage and conviction.

Told with unflinching honesty by her mother, Misty Bernall, Cassie's story is "a profoundly human story that should be read by every parent and every teenager" (New York Post).

Synopsis:

Told by her mother, this is the story of Cassie Bernall, murdered in the Colombine High School massacre on 20 April, 1999, who when asked with a gun pointed to her head if she believed in God, answered "yes". This is an account of a teenager's path to self-discovery and her tragic death.

Dance2Tennis, November 14, 2007 (view all comments by Dance2Tennis)
The book was obviously an emotional roller coaster ride, at least I found myself thinking that while reading the book, but the reason I am commenting is because my English class is making us do an auto-biography on somebody important that we haven't met... like a celebrity or pro-athlete, but I chose to do mine on Cassie Bernall. She is very fascinating to learn about because there has been a lot of debating on whether SHE was the girl who replied yes to her killers about their question or if they even asked her anything at all. The debating has caused a huge controversy. In the end, however, I do believe that Cassie Bernall DID say yes to her killers because I DO believe that they asked her the question in the first place. Cassie was a great person and deserved so much more out of life, but at least she was happy. That's all that matters. Cassie Bernall said yes and stood up for what she believed. To many people she is the true definition of a hero.

this book brings out extreme emotions. it almost made me cry. i cant truely image the horror Cassie experienced in those moments at columbine but i know it makes me think about how i am showing my faith to others. i think it is an amazing sign from god that she said yes. It was a wonderful book. Thank you misty bernall. you are a wonderful mother and a great person.
