"a great little book that can help us reassess our lives and put into perspective what's really important."
"The author proclaims that we are being destroyed by people who claim we do not need God and the sadness of that statement is that those people are rejecting love. She believes that we have become a society that treats all faiths as equal and make God what we want Him to be and therefore make love what we want it to be.
The book's is that it is not about us. It is about how we love from a biblical perspective. It is the gentle love and the tough love, the giving and taking, being needed and needing others.
Everyone reading this book will have something that 'speaks' to them. For me it was loving the unlovable and being the unlovable. It gave me pause and I've been thinking about the subject (and working on changing) a lot since reading the book. It is one that will hold a special place in my personal library... This is a book, for all people, not just girls."

"Okay, okay, we've all heard the line, "In order to be loved, you must first love others." But the reason that has become a cliché is because it is true, and Shannon Kubiak Primicerio has given new life to the phrase in her book Being A Girl Who Loves. Primicerio addresses her message to young girls, females in their teens, and adult women who have turned to other people to find acceptance and nurturing when they have felt unfulfilled as persons. The author uses her own life as an example of this kind of insecurity, but she also supplies anecdotes and narratives from women she has interviewed and counseled. She tackles very complex emotional issues, yet writes in contemporary language and in a matter-of-fact delivery. She is blunt in showing how women will, indeed, be disappointed at times if they put all their trust and faith in other humans (male or female) instead of investing that trust in Christ, who never fails"

"the real world examples included are very enlightening and interesting on their own. Christian readers, of course, will find this to be a very enjoyable and heart-mending book.... the book has some very good advice and a feel-good message. Recommended for readers age 12 and up."
"While this book is a great book for your young teen girl, it is also a great read for women, too. With only 170 pages, it is an easy read. Each chapter is a good length for small group study or daily individual reading.
I found many important reminders that are relevant in my own life and I think "Being a Girl Who Loves" is worthwhile reading for anyone who is serious about making the choice to fulfill Jesus' command."
