Item description for Being a Girl Who Leads: Becoming a Leader by Following Christ by Shannon Kubiak Primicerio...
Overview Gives guidance to adolescent girls who may be unsure of how to take a stand against behaviors that go against the Christian faith, and encourages them to take a leadership role among friends to support a Christian lifestyle.
Publishers Description You've got to stand for something in a world that will fall for anything. Are you afraid to be different? How often do you follow everyone else just so they don't think you're weird or an outsider? What happens when you find yourself at the big end-of-the-year party and you're challenged to take a swig of beer or make out with the cute guy headed toward you? At what point do you walk away? A big part of being a Christian who leads is standing against something you know is wrong. You don't have to go with the flow all the time. To be a leader, you've got to be different. Your peers will observe you and the choices you make, and if you make that decision to go against the social order and stand up for what you believe in, others will notice. If other girls follow your example, there could be an incredible revolution across our generation. It takes only one to make a change. You can be a leader. Are you willing to be different?

Inspiring!!!! Apr 24, 2010
This book is absolutly amazing! It is just what teens like me need to hear right now, the main message is "Someone has to stand up to something in a world that falls for everything". It is written in a very easy to get way! I would strongly sugjest this to any teen!
after reading this book Jan 10, 2010
As a christian and a youth leader I obviously approve of this book as it is talks about really important areas that we need to work on in our lives. However I think the author is a bit extreme at times and unrealistic in today's society. Young people can't help but hear songs on the radio that refer to sex and drugs and when they do they do not feel the urge to go out and act immorally. Some may do but the majority don't, in fact many hear the songs so much that they are immune to them! Also, the author actually rights "you should never be alone with a guy." This is just unrealistic, how are you ever meant to get to know someone and see whether they are right for you if you never get to be alone with them. Relationships are about spending time with someone and seeing whether they will be the one that is right for you. You can't constantly sit in a room with their parents just so you don't do something you might regret.
Highly recommend this book!! Sep 15, 2009
I do not like reading but I could not put this book down along with the other 2 in the series. This book really changed my perspective on a lot of things for the better. I am living my life fully for Christ, but I'm not perfect. ;)

I read this book over a 5-day period, and I LOVED it. The topics were way different than what I thought the book was going to cover, but they ended up being better than expected. Instead of talking about the steps you can do to become a leader, it talked more about what you need to STOP doing, which, in the end, became what you can do as well. I would recommend it to anyone new or old in faith, anyone struggling with relationships, gossip, compromises, and anyone who wants to be held accountable to what they've done. But I don't want to make it sound like the book is all about being judged; it's just more about things you need to stop doing in order to stand out. "Being a girl who leads" helped me to find where I'm struggling in my walk with Christ and recognized things I can to do lead give an example for others! Very, very inspiring and uplifting: this books makes you really feel you can make a change in the world by leading by example!
