How else could one explain that nothing - not even the loss of her arm in a horrific shark attack - could come between her and the waves?

Loved it!

The whole story is captivating and truly inspiring. I've heard of Bethany Hamilton before, reading about her incident in high school, but I never really read about it and what she did to over come the tragedy. This book and amazingly written, and I could not put it down! Finished it in a day, and had a moment to myself trying to process all that I've read. 5/5

Soul Surfer was a very good book!

The book was overall written very well. It had the right amount of details and shows the obstacles that Bethany went through. It showed that you can get through anything and still come back better than ever.

Soul Surfer

Bethany Hamilton is a strong in her faith, but when tradegdy strikes, will she ever have the faith to surf again? This is the amazing story of a whose faith and courage could help her surf again. Will it be enough? In this book it really shows the love and passion this has for the sport and the perseverance to take risks again. You will find that faith can be big enough for anything in life, even if you don't think so. This book is targeted to all ages, but mainly middle school students and up. Soul Surfer is mainly for middle school s and up. I also think that this book targets the right audience. For example: indescribable, amputation, and traumatic. "I never saw the shark closing in on me. I'm glad that I never had a split second to wrap my head around the fact that I was being attacked." - Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer) I think that this book is written in a passionate voice and it fits the character well. "Why did God choose me and what does he have in mind for me." -Bethany Hamilton (Soul Surfer) This book is written in first-person. Soul Surfer is an easy book to follow. It explains points and what happened to Bethany in an easy to understand way. "It's a thirteen year old female and the arm is gone..." -Soul Surfer I would recommend Soul Surfer to anyone really. Mainly s though. If you are interested in true stories, this would be a great book to read. I truly enjoyed this book and I think that it showed me how perseverance, courage, and strength are great things to have in life and they can really help in tremendous ways.

Soul Sufer

Title: Soul Surfer Author: Bethany Hamilton Main Character: The main character is Bethany Hamilton. She is 13 years old, and she lives to surf. Plot: Bethany and her friend were out laying on their boards talking on Halloween morning. All of a sudden, Bethany felt a tug. She looked down and saw a pool of blood. She remained calm and then she realized that her arm and a chunk of her surfboard had been bitten off. She paddled back to shore yelling, "I've been bitten by a shark!" This is the beginning of Bethany's battle. She never gave up. She exercised every day and never stopped believing in herself. Before she knew it, she was back on her board again! Setting: Modern day, Kauai, Hawaii Theme: Bethany was staying true to herself and God to get back on the board again. I really liked this book because it relates to my life because I like surfing and she inspired me too. She showed me that even if something terrible has happened to you like losing an arm or a leg, you don't have to give up what you were doing. You can still accomplish your dreams!

soul surfer By:Veronica Richardson

Soul Surfer By Bethany Hamilton is a very good book in numerous ways.The main reason why the book is my favorite is because I like all the extreme details that she used when describing how the shark attacked her.She also is saying that she doesnt really like the fact that everybody wants to spoil her and love her more just because she got attacked by a shark,she wants to be treated just like she would if she had'nt got attacked by a shark.All in all I think the book is a very great book and if you enjoy reading about real-life situations then Soul Surfer is the right book for you.

Soul Surfing the waves

Have you ever gone through an experience when you got your arm bitten off by a shark? Doubt it. Well in the book Soul Surfer By: Bethany Hamilton, she got her arm bitten off by a shark when she was surfing. She kept her faith in God and still followed her surfing dream with one arm only. This is a Non Fiction book so it is a true story. Bethany Hamilton has not written any other books but the one that she wrote is an awesome book. The setting is in Hawaii and the main characters are Bethany and her family. The book does have some weak points, all the surfing information and stuff like that because it gets boring after awhile. The book Soul Surfer is a very suspenseful book once you get to the attack you can't put it down. When you're reading Soul Surfer it will teach you to never give up on your dreams and ALWAYS have faith in god. Someone who might be interested in this book might be someone who got injured badly and thinks that since they got injured they can't follow their dream. Well, a shark bit off Bethany Hamilton's arm and she is living her surfing dream. I think that people should read Soul Surfer because it teaches people to never give up on themselves no mater how bad the case is. So if you ever get your arm bitten off by a shark have a lot of faith in god and never give up on your dreams!
