Reader reviewed by RuthieBethany Hamilton has been my hero since I first heard about the shark attack in 03'. Not only does it take guts to get back on that board, but it takes a lot of mental stress to deal with the trauma. Bethany is, most definitely, a strong individual. While her book is obviously not written by a long-term, professional author, it is a good story about faith and combating fear and rationality. Her story inspires you. I love it.
As for the movie, I also give it credit. The producers stayed 100% true to the book and I thought Robb did a great job as Bethany. While the book focuses on the faith and mental aspect, the movie really played up the surfing. The movie showed us all the action, from catching the perfect wave, to wiping out. It was a great movie and I'd suggest it to any Bethany/surfer fan.

I really agree with you. I think it takes so many guts to lose something like that and then be able to do that again. Goodness!
