Item Description...
Ashley Stockingdale, 31, has a respectable (read: boring) job in Silicon Valley as a patent attorney. It's the kind of life that causes her mother to ask repeatedly, "Now what exactly do you do there, dear?"
Given that in Silicon Valley the single men outnumber the women 2 to 1, Ashley can't help but wonder why a cute, eligible, Christian girl ("with absolutely adorable shoes") sits home most weekends. Even her church singles group fails to satisfy, endlessly watching The Matrix and "splurging", obnoxiously, on un-cool dinners at Applebee's and unhip franchise restaurants.
So Ashley resolves to go for it! If only she knew what "it" she's going for. Perhaps that ever-illusive promotion that would give her the glamorous career girl image she's longed for? Or maybe the wardrobe to end all wardrobes, turning her glowing, possibly-pregnant newlywed friends green with envy? Or, best of all, winning the affections of the handsome doctor she's met through her work with the youth center!
Ultimately, Ashley finds that what a girl wants and what a girl needs aren't always the same thing. Join Ashley for the first of two lighthearted books about a single-girl's bumbling but loveable quest for meaning.

What a girl wants to read  Mar 24, 2007
Being something of a cynic anyway, I'm leery of Christian-themed "chick lit," mainly because much of what I've tried to read in the genre has been unintelligent tripe. I picked this book up from a friend's coffee table and hadn't read two pages before I knew I had to have it. Billerbeck's novel sincerely and practically hashes out real emotional issues in the lives of young women, using a Christian context that is discernible but not overbearing. And she does it all with outrageous humor! I found myself more than once slapping my knee.

Women born in the 70's and maybe early 80's will appreciate the contemporary references (e.g., Ricki Lake, Dance Fever, Super Mario). If you are a woman (esp. Christian) who no longer passes for a "young adult" and is frustrated with the single life, this book will make you laugh, lift your spirits, even prick at some important issues of the heart -- but ultimately, it will encourage you. Reading a book won't necessarily change your life, but this book might help you appreciate it a little more.
Loved it!!!  Feb 14, 2007
Wonderful book! It is a wonderful read for the light-hearted reader whose not into the profanity and explicit sexual content. It was clean, witty humor and I loved it!
Ugh! This girl doesn't want this book.  Sep 25, 2006
I purchased this book on Ebay and even though I only spent $4 it wasn't remotely worth it. I knew by the end of page 1 that I wasn't going to like this book but I forced myself to keep reading, hoping it would get better. I finished the 1st chapter and tried to start the 2nd but I just couldn't take any more. I was going to go back and count how many times she mentioned her religion or living in Silicon Valley but it would have been a waste of my time. Only read this book if the constant whining about religion is something that interests you. Me, it made me want to throw up. So freaking preachy. If I wanted to feel like I was in church I would go there instead of the beach. Waste of paper. I'm going to re-sell it but I feel sorry for the next sucker that falls for the description on the back which doesn't mention the holier-than-thou attitude of the character.
What a Girl Wants  Aug 21, 2006
What a Girl Wants is a great read for women of all ages. It provides a good laugh and a couple of teary moments. The main character, Ashley Stockingdale, is funny and vulnerable. The dialogue is witty and believable. Along with Ashley, Kristin Billerbeck creates a wonderful supporting cast of characters that are well fleshed out. I'm not a fan of chick-lit, but I found myself looking forward to a quiet house. When everyone was asleep, I curled up on the sofa. The author isn't afraid to let loose and explore life from a single women's point of view--no holds barred. I devoured this book right on down to the last two sentences where the author hits the nail on the head. What a girl wants is God's will for her life. Nothing else compares.

Sometimes I think I am Ashley  Aug 8, 2006
Loved this book! I read a lot and rarely find a book I'll give five stars to. This time I completely related to the main character. From the profession to her guy dilemas, I was hooked. I appreciated that this book contains all of the usual drama and fun twists associated with the standard chick lit without the sex and alcohol. It's a great book that also has a fabulous way of portraying christians as normal people with normal problems.
