Description



About the Book



Hamilton, the teenage surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack in the fall of 2003, shares her amazing story, detailing her return to surfing after this life-changing event. She also reveals how she has dealt with the maelstrom of attention from the press and media and how her faith keeps her going and feeling positive.



Book Synopsis



In this moving personal account of faith and fortitude, internationally ranked surfer Bethany Hamilton tells how she survived a shark attack that cost her arm--but not her spirit.

They say Bethany Hamilton has saltwater in her veins. How else could one explain the passion that drives her to surf? How else could one explain that nothing--not even the loss of her arm--could come between her and the waves? That Halloween morning in Kauai, Hawaii, Bethany responded to the shark's stealth attack with the calm of a girl with God on her side. Pushing pain and panic aside, she began to paddle with one arm, focusing on a single thought: "Get to the beach...." And when the first thing Bethany wanted to know after surgery was "When can I surf again?" it became clear that her spirit and determination were part of a greater story--a tale of courage and faith that this soft-spoken girl would come to share with the world.

Soul Surfer is a moving account of Bethany's life as a young surfer, her recovery after the attack, the adjustments she's made to her unique surfing style, her unprecedented bid for a top showing in the World Surfing Championships, and, most fundamentally, her belief in God. It is a story of girl power and spiritual grit that shows the body is no more essential to surfing--perhaps even less so--than the soul.

This memoir is a true insparation for anyone . Not only was it fun to read, the book was very moving . Soul Surfer was about a young girls fight to overcome obstacles after she was attacked by a shark while surfing on halloween day . Not only does she get back on her board and return to the competition circuit she remains upbeat and cheerful throughout her whole experience . I would recomend this book to anyone who is looking for , not a fast book to read but a fast pace book to read . This book keeps you wanting to read more and more . I was truely inspired by this book . It taught me that just because you have somthing standing in your way , doesnt mean you can not go over it or around it .
