We will be discussing Bethany Hamilton’s book, Soul Surfer. Bethany Hamilton, whom YM magazine called the "Bravest Girl in America," has been surfing since she was a toddler. After her shark attack, she returned to competitive surfing and, in 2005, took first place in the NSSA National Championships. Now a professional surfer, she is currently ranked among the top women in the world. As well as receiving the 2004 Teen Choice Award for Courage and the 2004 ESPY award for Best Comeback Athlete, she makes many television and other event appearances. Recently, she launched Friends of Bethany, an organization dedicated to supporting and encouraging shark attack survivors and traumatic amputees along with presenting inspiring life stories through movies, projects, and activities.
