Soul Surfer (book)


Bethany Hamilton, a 13-year old surfer girl lost her arm in a shark attack one Halloween morning. Responding to the shark's stealth with a calmness beyone belief, Bethany managed to push pain and panic aside and get herself to the safety of the beach, from where she was rushed to hospital. When the first thing Bethany wanted to know after surgery was "When can I surf again?" it became clear that her unfaltering spirit and determination were part of a greater story, a tale of courage and faith that this soft-spoken girl is now sharing with us.
