From the Inside Flap
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 behind-the-scenes 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 God-given rights to freedom of speech, thought, and conscience.

Praise for Still Standing
It took a twenty-two-year old beauty queen to remind America that there’s still such a thing as free speech and that we don’t have to kowtow to political correctness. That makes Carrie Prejean more than a beauty queen—it makes her a heroine.” - Rush Limbaugh
No one can incite the rage of liberals like a sexy Evangelical Christian, and Carrie Prejean is the smoking hottest Evangelical of them all. Facing a frenzy of attacks from liberals for preferring classic marriage’ to new marriage’ in her answer at a beauty pageant, Prejean proved that there is no rock like the rock of Christianity. Carrie’s admiration for marriage—and her lovely backbone—triggered the liberals’ well-known fight or flight’ syndrome. In this book, Still Standing, Carrie tells all.” - Ann Coulter

The book itself is an empty attempt at self glorification with absolutely no real value. It is simply a rip off of consumer's money and a girl's attempt to hold on to another few minutes of false fame.
However before I paid $15 for an ebook in Kindle (which I think is too much for any ebook) I ordered the "sample"
Boy am I glad I did. The writing and style was horrible. I felt like I was reading something from a high school essay.
Don't waste you money on this right now. Wait a month or so and Kindle will have it for 5.99 at most
There is NOTHING christian about her.
A rather boring read, something you can pick up when u have absolutely nothing else to read.
My first impression of the book was that it was not well written. It read very much like a high school essay or a journal. I felt like her writing could have been more professional for someone in their early 20s.
I did like getting some insight into the pageant world. Deep down I always knew that pagean life was very much the way she described it but I had always brushed it off as sort of an unfair judgement. Afterall, I was never in a pageant (and never aspired to). I have no doubts that the way she was treated really did happen. After being involved in politics for many years, I can tell you the things that people and the media can do to you if you don't agree with them is pretty ugly. I've seen these things happen to myself and other people first hand.
I also didn't like the fact that she kind of just swept her indescretions under the rug. I know that in several portions of the book she says she's not the perfect Christian but she really needs to clear the air and tell us exactly how. Don't wait for the news media to dig them up. Get them out there now and you'll be the bigger person.
In all, if the writing had been better and she was a little more open about her past (other than just telling us all the good she's done or how the media treated you), we would have a great book on our hands.
