Her and her best friend Alana are amazing surfers and spend most of their time in the water then on land, they live in Hawaii. One day, Bethany gets attacked by a shark and her life changes forever. Shes getting way too much attention from people and now surfing becomes a challenge. Bethany lost an arm. She loves surfing and it means everything to Bethany, she fears not being able to surf, but she continues being an amazing competitive surfer. This is an amazing inspiring book and I recommend it to anyone. It is also an easy, fast read.

    Bethany Hamilton reflects on her experiences and shares messages and verses from The Bible. Topics include friendship, relationships, peer pressure, goals, and prayer. There are sections of prayer and then questions to make the reader reflect up on and write answers to in their devotion.

    This book is very good. There are just a few things I disagree like not getting baptized and that is about it. This book is really inspiring to live life to the fullest while serving God.

    I read the book Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton, it is a very inspirational autobiography. The story is one of a young surfer who is a very accomplished for her age, she has a near death experience when a shark bites her arm off. It is very tragic event and one that most people would let ruin their life, this story is about how she proves you can persevere through the rough times and the seemingly unclimbable mountain she was put in front of. She knew the odds were against her ever getting on a surf board and competing ever again. She did not let the odds stop her though, she was going to relearn how to surf and prove people wrong. I believe her purpose in writing this book is to show everyone out there that if you want something bad enough do not let people tell you that you cant succeed. Life is full of people who will want to tell you that you can't do something and she wanted to show everyone that that isn't true. The theme of this book is that anything is possible. Bethany went through a major hardship, I personally don't think I could see such a positive side in losing an arm and be able to inspire everyone who I meet. Bethany is truly an inspiration to be able to work against all odds and still be able to do what she loves. She proves that anything is possible by telling her amazing story.Personally I would not change anything about this book because it is her story, she lived it and deserves to be able to tell it as she pleases. It is a narrative that tells her story in chronological order. I liked the book because I feel like a connected with the author and could really relate to her hardship and it was easy to root for her in her journey to regain her surfing career. All in all, Bethany Hamilton is a role model to all people, she is a great example of how hard work pays off. She shows how anything can happen and even when it seems as if your back is against the ropes you can still come out on top. I do not think this book is written to reward her for her hard work but in order to prove to all kids with a dream that you can do anything that you want with your life and not to let doubters get in your way.

    The book I read for the second quarter was “Soul Surfer” by Bethany Hamilton. The whole book was based around the story of her not letting her injury get in the way of her dreams. It tells the story of her attack and her battle to get back on her feet to live out her dream. “Soul Surfer” is a true story about family, perseverance, and fighting to get back on the board.The story starts off with Bethany talking about her experience during the shark attack and how it immediately affected her. She goes on to tell how difficult it was to do everyday activities and to just simply keep up with life. Though it was hard to get back into the loop, Bethany admitted that she would do anything to try and keep her passion for surfing alive. Once things got a little easier and she was learning to cope with her injury, she decided to share her story with the world. After everyone had heard her story she talks about how her attack affected not only her, but also so many other people. She tells of the many times her shark attack has allowed her to be able to speak to others about not only hardships but bring Christ into their lives. “Life is a lot like surfing… When you get caught in the impact zone, you’ve got to just get back up. Because you never know what may be over the next wave.” (Hamilton 107) I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, it teaches everyone about faith and learning to never give up. The book “Soul Surfer” not only inspires you but makes you want to work even harder at whatever your passionate about. Overall I would give this book a five out of five stars.

    This summer I read Soul Surfer by, Bethany Hamilton. This takes place in Kauai, Hawaii and it is about a teenager who was born to surf and surfing is her life. In 2003 Bethany Hamilton and her friends decided to go late night surfing on Halloween. Unfortunatley a horrific life threating situation occured when a tiger shark bit off Bethany Hamilton's arm while she was lying down on her board. Luckily she was with multiple friends that were able to get her to shore both quickly and safely. After they got to the shore her good friend Byron called the police and they got her to the hospital. Bethany was safe and now only has one arm. Bethany couragousley got back in the water and started surfing once again. This book taught me multiple things, this book taught me to allways follow your passions and dreams no matter what obsticles come in the way. This book also taught me never to give up and also to be bold and couragous. I really enjoyed reading this book because of all of the useful life lessons that it hadto offer. I would reccomend this book to someone who likes surfing or autobiographys.

    Bethany Hamilton speaks from her experiences and observations of the world, of people she admires, and encourages others to reflect in spots to journal. Each devotion is a page long and reflections on God's message as well as how it relates to our lives. This book would be great for teens but it was a bit to young for me. But it would still be helpful for those starting to read devotions because they are short and clear.

    This book was not what I expected. I thought that I would get to hear the story about a pro surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack. This book told us how god is always on out side and how he is always here for us. I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought would. I did like how the author made interesting points though.I would recommend this book to people who are religious and christian.

    This book was interesting. Yet, it was kinda boring in some parts. It mostly dragged on about the shark attack. I wanted to hear more about herself and what her interests are. It was all basically about the shark attack. It was really depressing. I just kinda expected more than what I got... But, it talked about her childhood and family and stuff like that occasionally and that was great! I just wanted to hear more.Good book, overall though. :)

    It's a very easy to digest read since it's geared towards teenage girls. I am really enjoying it. Bethany is a young Christian woman whose devotion to God is inspiring and refreshing. Borrowing it from the library (read: FREE), recommend to any woman who's looking for a simple but edifying Christian read!

    Bethany Hamilton’s true story is about faith, family, and perseverance. Hamilton’s autobiography is inspiring and would be a good choice for anybody! I found it exciting to read about the surfer’s life before, during, and after her terrible accident.

    I really enjoyed this book because it was cool to see how much faith she had in GOD and made me think about doing the same thing. it was also so to see how she lived life with only one arm and learned how to do things!

    Prepare yourself, because you are about to read about the best book ever. Soul Surfer was a dramatic; life changing book full of determination and dedication for the sport of surfing, and even when the challenges get tough, she continues doing what she loves. I rate this book a 5/5, because I was so surprised on how much I liked this book, because I thought it wouldn’t be as good as the movie. Bethany is a 16 year old girl, who loved to surf. One day she went to an island with friends, and it was a deserted place where rarely anyone went. They were out beyond the reef, when a shark comes out of nowhere, and attacks Bethany. The whole book is based upon Bethany’s journey to keep doing what she loves, even though it is near impossible.I definitely recommend reading this, even though most people can’t connect well to it unless they were in a tragic incident. I still felt like I was there, watching the whole thing, and really experienced what she was going through. You would definitely enjoy this book if you were in to feel-good, and self motivation books. A connection I had to this book was where Bethany said ‘Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let the fear stop you.” (Hamilton 122). I related to this because last year when I ran track, I was practicing hurdles and I skinned my knee since it was rainy and cold. The turf was wet which caused me to slip, but I was motivated to keep doing them. Another connection I noticed in this book was a text to world connection, and this quote was, “I don’t need easy, I just need possible” (Hamilton 106). I think this relates to everything because in life everything is not going to be easy, and the saying that still stands is, “anything is possible.”

    I really liked this book. It honestly helps open your eyes to appreciation for everything you have! It was great seeing these unique struggles from the author's point of view. I think the author, Bethany Hamilton, could have showed us everything that happened instead of simply telling us. However, the story itself is great and can stand independently despite the lack of imagery.

    In the biography Soul Surfer Devotions by Bethany Hamilton, the main character is Bethany whom which is a top surfer who faces a tough loss during surfing.... her arm. It was Halloween day, but the holiday did not stop Bethany from going surfing just like she does everyday with her best buddies. While waiting for another big wave, a great white shark came up and bit Bethany. This is where the main central idea that the author is hinting at the reader comes up. The central message is that yes, bad things are going to happen and life may feel like it is falling apart, but it does not matter what the bad thing is; What matters is the response and what the attitude is that reflects the tough obstacles and decisions that may occur.Bethany stays calm during this whole fiasco. Her staying calm saved her life because she would have lost more blood if she freaked out. This sets an example for just about anybody no matter the age and no matter the level of toughness one may face.I overall really enjoyed this book. I like books that give me answers. Answers to questions i have about life or just random things i wonder about at night when i cannot sleep. This book gives me all of that. Bethany's motivation to surf and become number 1 no matter one gives me reassurance. When Bethany says "I don't need easy, i just need possible" it shows that she is just so determined to show the world that this huge bump in the world wont stop her. This makes the reader feel happy, at least it made me feel happy. Not only was Bethany's arm taken away, but her board was also taken away. Bethany was very attached to all her boards and it is awful for her to see that become ruined also. All throughout the book there are photographs of Bethany. In one of the photos Bethany is holding her shark bitten board. It is like that that board is like a symbol. A symbol that is a part of her. The board doe not have any use for surfing anymore but Bethany needs that board because it has become a part of her. This was an amazing book in which i learned a lot about dealing with tough life experiences. I would recommend this book to everyone because it was a joy to read.
