She Said Yes by Misty Bernall
Does anyone remember the Columbine High School shooting that happened on April 19, 1999? Two rage-filled students opened fire on the student body, killing thirteen individuals? She Said Yes by Misty Bernall, tells the story of her daughter, Cassie Bernall, who was one of the thirteen victims. The focal point of the story is how when asked at gunpoint if she believed in God, she said yes. The book is told by her mother and offers a narrative of how this young woman went from a teenager with a mindset unsettling similar to those of her killers, to the person who managed to touch the entire nation with her unlikely martyrdom.
This book is short, sweet, and very touching. If someone doesn’t believe in the Christian faith, this book may not be for you. But it does have several accounts of what happened during the infamous Columbine Shooting. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to know more of that day, and how the girl who became known the world over for the shooting, became who she was. The book is an excellent tribute to her memory.Reviewer: BF
