Have you ever wondered what its like to lose an arm? Well Bethany Hamilton knows. My book is about a girl named Bethany, who’s passion is to surf.Bethany is a 12 year old girl, who goes out surfing in the least likely place to have a shark attack, for the first attack in the area, Bethany was struck. She had lost her left arm. Bethany loved to surf so much, she wanted to get back on board. And she did. She had faith in herself, and didn't give up. Now, she is a major surfer girl. She has won countless awards for competitions, and world records. I think this book is a true inspiring story to read. The point of this book is to tell people to never give up and you can achieve. I recommend this book to those whom enjoy reading biographies about life changing stories. Because what happened to bethany defiantly changed her life. (Kati H., student)
