I loved the book it was so inspiring and it made me feel like I was in her shoes living her life. There was so much that I hadn't realized in life that was important and she made me discover it. There are so many lessons to take from this book but I think my favorite is accept yourself for who you are. I agree with that so much. I saw Bethany in Hershey Park and got her autograph and no, she is not rude or mean. Instead she is caring and funny. Sometimes I think oh I have to live up to the expectations of everybody when in reality I am myself and if they can't accept that than so be it. Bethany's book has taught me that and also that God has a plan for everybody and I also loved how she used qoutes from the Bible. There are so many people out in the world who should read Bethany's book, it is the most fabulous book ever!

This was a book about courage and bravery. She did not give up. She kept God in everything she did. She acted like he was right beside her. I liked this book because she wrote what she had to go through and her emotions in her point of view and I understood it in my point of view.

I am truely amazed at how well Bathany has handled the whole ordeal of getting her arm bitten off by a shark. I would have pannicked and I would be so depressed. I would feel like an outcast and feel like everyone was looking down on me. The way she has handled this makes me realize it might not be all that bad and it also helps me to realize how lucky I am to be gifted with both of mr arms. Bethany has inspired me. Maybe even to the point of giving syrfing a try. I defenatly laughed and cried while reading this book. Very emotional.

Soul Surfer is a great book because of the details and writing.It is very intresting to be able to read about something so tragic.I think that Bethany is a real good writer,because she has great details and a good mind.In the book i like to read about the attack and when she tells about her family.Soul Surfer is a great book.I think it was very cool that she got to be on tv and that she got to share her story.Some people might not like reading non-fiction like me but this book is very intresting at some points it didnt even seem like non-fiction.

I have never went surfing nor have i been to Hawaii. The author Bethany Hamilton made me want to be there with her, it made me feel as if i had been attacked right along with her. When she was in the hospital feeling her pain. She done an awesome job on not paniking when she was attacked. Thats how she lived. If i was there i would have so paniked. If you want to know more you'll have to read the book. To tell you the truth you will love the book!!!!! I know i sure did!!!
