Very interesting read. Great story about a girl who lost her arm, because it got bitten by a shark. However, she never gives up on hope and in God, which is pretty impressive to me, because most likely teenagers would blame God for anything happens that they don't like. She has a lot of faith which is what got her through as well as the support of her family and friends.
Much respect to this young woman. A good, quick and interesting read. This is better than I expected. The devotions are encouraging and inspirational.
My daughter is a swimmer and several of the mentions of surfing can apply to any sport. I was looking for an appropriate biography for my 6th grade daughter's book report assignment when I came across this book.
She really enjoyed it and it was definitely age appropriate. The story was inspiring and entertaining.
My daughter isn't a big fan of reading to begin with, but she really enjoyed this book. Bethany is an inspiration to all! I'm glad I got this book and not the original. In this book she goes behind the scenes of her movie "Soul Surfer". At the end of the book she keeps a journal of the whole movie experience. From picking out the actors to the day the movie was released. It's so awesome to see whole process! I love how she was so open about her faith and just laid it out black and white, plain and simple.
Even while filming the movie she would constantly tell the director Sean McNamara to keep her faith as the main focus of the movie. Not only did she want to be a inspiration to the world but she wanted to do it through Jesus Christ. This is a book for all ages. Even if she wrote this as a teenager she has the maturity and wisdom that goes way beyond that.
I'm 22 years old and I found this book so compelling.
I could not put it down! I to am a Christian and in this world we live in it so easy for girls to sell themselves out, especially being in Hollywood. Bethany said in her book that she wants to continue to stay humble and be a good example to young girls out there, even after being famous. How cool is that! Not only has this surfer shown how talented and ambitious she is but, she got to show the world that with Jesus all things are possible!
Thanks Bethany! This was a good book to read, I enjoyed hearing her story and how she made it through the experience and grew from it. Some of it was very obviously written by a very young author, but if she's telling in her own words then that's how it should be.

Imagine you doing your favorite thing in the world, whatever it may be: Now imagine that one outlet of creativity and expression being stripped away from you, with nothing you could do to help it. This should have been the story of committed surfer, Bethany Hamilton.
It was an ordinary day. Bethany woke up, did her studies and then got ready for the day; polished her precious surfboard, ate breakfast and checked the local surfing forecast. Perfect day to surf. She went out to the waves with her brother, Timmy, her best friend Alana Blanchard and her dad. They were paddling, waiting for the perfect wave to hit, dangling their arms casually into the water. Little did they know what would be coming next.
After that, her life was changed forever, but that would never have stopped her from going towards her goal: After the descriptive and story-like introduction, the book got kind of weird. Instead of telling about her story, it told about different aspects of her life: I personally would not recommend it to anyone looking for an intriguing book.
Instead of how this book was laid out, I personally would have told it like a story starting from the beginning, and going until my first victorious surf competition after the attack.

One day at the beach, Bethany and Alanna went to surf. There was no waves, they were just sitting back and enjoying the breeze.
All of a sudden, Bethany saw a gray flash, felt a tug on her arm, and then slowly saw the water turn red After Bethany was released from the hospiltal, she started therapy on her arm, so that it would get stronger. When h Soul Surfer is a book about a girl named Bethany and her surfing life.
When her stiches were removed, she wanted to try to surf again with only one arm. On her first couple of trys, she didnt manage to get up, but after that she finally was able to surf. I think that Bethany was trying to tell people that you should never give up. Just because you think you can't do something, you need to try and keep on until you accomplish it.
View all 8 comments. Oct 15, Carsten Thomsen rated it it was ok. I watched the movie Soul Surfer and liked it - and was intrigued by this true story of Bethany Hamilton who lost an arm in a shark attack, yet was able to go back and compete as a professional surfer.
Wanted to know more about her story - also to find out more about her struggles to come back competing and her spiritual journey.
But the biography is focused too much on all the publicity her "story" has created in the media and her view on that OK, we each have our own way of coping with things, and apparently it all came quite easy for her or is there something left out?
This book is filled with christian cliches about faith and God which gets kind of boring and almost unbelivable - don't get me wrong - I share her faith in God - but there's just too many platitudes and easy answers in a book about disability and rehabilitation Ok, it's the voice of a teenager, so maybe I just expect to much. Also it ends with a horrible diary about the making of the movie I just skimmed it But go see the movie. It's a good story!

I really felt for her and can't believe how courageous she was. I couldn't believe how long of a drive it was from the beach to the hospital. All in all, an inspiring story! May 11, Lila Kims rated it it was amazing. The audiobook had me captivated from beginning to end. Bethany's story is so inspiring! Soul Surfer is a very inspiring book. It talks about a girl named Bethany Hamilton she was on a surf board one summer morning when she got a big suprise.
And she got bit by a shark. She lost her left arm but she kept pushing her self forward and taught herslef to keep trying. Soon she was ok and went back to surfing before this all happened, she was in a competition and she kept trying and got second place. She was so glad she never gave up or she would never have been able to prove to herself a Soul Surfer is a very inspiring book.
She was so glad she never gave up or she would never have been able to prove to herself and others that she could surf again. She was so proud of herself. She never thought she would inspire so many people. She would never be able to do all this if it was not for her family being there and loving her.
Nov 12, Jaimal marked it as to-read. I haven't read Soul Surfer yet, but I had the privilege of surfing with Bethany Hamilton in Bali recently and was so inspired by her commitment. For those who don't know the story, Bethany lost an arm in a shark attack some years back while surfing. Rather than stopping, she relearned to surf with the handicap and hasn't slowed down at all. I'm sure the re-learning process was grueling, but seeing her now, it doesn't seem like losing her arm has hindered her abilities at all.
She was the best fe I haven't read Soul Surfer yet, but I had the privilege of surfing with Bethany Hamilton in Bali recently and was so inspired by her commitment.
She was the best female surfer I've ever seen. We were at Padang Padang, a very critical hollow wave, and it was cranking: Bethany was having to take off deeper than everyone else, but she made every wave and got barreled really deep every time.
One time a a guy dropped in on her and her camera man started flipping out, screaming, "She's got one fucking arm!
Get out the water! She was very humble and cool. I'm sure her book is too. Jul 21, Charlie added it Shelves: This book is very inspiring. Though, I didn't finish it. Firstly, because it was due back to the library, but it just seemed to go on and on.
A little boring at the end. Basically, it could've been shorter. I've watched the movie, which is brilliant.
She acts in a few other movies I like. Though the book might be a bit boring towards the end, I encourage you to watch the movie - it's great!! Dec 16, B. Depue rated it it was amazing.
