I've just started reading this book. It's good so far, but since I haven't read much I can't say a whole deal of how great it is.
It does remind me of the movie shown in April in 2011 'Soul Surfer', a girl out with her board and then a shark bites her arm off. Soul Surfer is a true story. I love the movie! The real girl is called Bethany Hamilton if you want to look her up. (:
So far I'm giving it a fair rating cos other comments say it's great. :D 11 and up, cut out the first swear word I saw, lol.
