Carrie Prejean had no idea, when she walked down the stage to face her final question before the selection and crowning of Miss USA, that her hopes, dreams, and reputation were about to come crashing down around her under a torrent of media attacks. Her crime? To have answered honestly that for her?and for most Americans?marriage is defined as a sacred bond between one man and one woman. For the thought crime of saying this, Carrie Prejean went from being the likely winner of the Miss USA competition to being the certain loser. But worse, she would be subjected to a campaign of vilification, verbal abuse, and betrayal that did not even end with her being stripped of her title of Miss California. Here at last is Carrie?s own story?the full story?about what actually happened. In Still Standing, you?ll learn: The behindthescenes truth of how and why Carrie?s own pageant directors joined forces with the vicious smear campaign against her The intimidation that kept many of Carrie?s supporters quiet How Donald Trump defended her?only to back down under pressure from the pageant directors Why liberals target conservative women for special persecution How political correctness is becoming a clear and present danger to free speech Carrie Prejean endured the hellish nightmare that the liberal media can inflict on anyone who disagrees with their agenda, but her faith, courage, and conviction have made her a role model for how we can stare down the bullies of political correctness and reclaim our Godgiven rights to freedom of speech, thought, and conscience.

I read this a wwwwhhhhiiiillllleeee back, and I think I should read it again. From what I can remember, it was very interesting to see Carrie's journey in the public eye. She went through a lot of hate but kept standing up for her faith. Yes, she made mistakes, but she really gives a behind-the-scenes look at a Christian's life in Hollywood and how you can't get through something like that without God. Great bio.
