A Must Read for Young Girls and Mature Women Alike! Feb 28, 2010
This book was absolutely amazing! Jennifer Strickland speaks to the heart of issues that young women and even mature women face in a culture obsessed with physical beauty. Her story is compelling and her love for Christ shines through on every page. A must read for every teen or college girl - and highly recommended for women of any age!
God's moving Oct 24, 2009
What makes me pay so much attention in this book is how honest the author is about her life. And what a powerfull real life story! I guess every girl can identify a little bit with Jennifer. This book is such a powerful instrument of God, specially when you pray before, asking that The Holy Spirit will make you live the truth that the book talks about. Another point that is so cool is that you cannot read it if you dont have a Bible by your side. So it is all about the only truth that is in Jesus Christ!
If I were you, I would for sure buy it!
ps: i think someone should start thinking about translations to other languages, like to portuguese!

As Reviewed on CBN.com Mar 21, 2009
Girl Perfect is a perfect 10 in my book. Jennifer Strickland has written one of the best books I've read in years, and I feel compelled to shout from the rooftops that women everywhere should read it. It's more than just beautifully written and expertly arranged--it's compelling, heartbreaking, and undeniably authentic. Strickland weaves the story of her years as a runway model with biblical teaching in a way that's both appealing and meaningful. Although I truly enjoyed each and every chapter of Girl Perfect, the last half of the book is especially gripping. Even though I already knew the end of the story (God's salvation and healing for Jennifer) I so enjoyed reading about the amazing and supernatural ways in which God revealed Himself to her.
On a personal note, my office bookshelves are bursting with stacks of books to read, review, and eventually pass on. Girl Perfect, however, will not be passed on. It's made the great leap from my office bookshelf to my living room bookshelf. I can't part with it. It's just too darn interesting and uplifting to pass on. Also, I have a fourteen year old daughter who I know will greatly enjoy this book when she's a bit older (some of Strickland's stories are a bit edgy for early teen girls in my opinion).
Girl Perfect Nov 2, 2008
This book was a refreshing wash of truth in a society so caught up in appearance, and status. Our spirits long for true love and companionship with our Maker. Jennifer has a distinct way of pealing away the layers and showing us all how to reach up to the Hand held down to us!
