Soul Surfer the book- By Bethany Hamilton herself

I have suddenly found this amazing love for reading, and when I start a book I just can't put it down. I got Soul Surfer the book(which Bethany Hamilton wrote only one year after the attack when she was just 14) from the library YESTERDAY. And I'm done. Hehe...I really couldn't put it down. It was absolutely amazing, and not a very hard read at ALL. It was 213 pages long, and every single page was fantastic. After seeing the movie(3 times) it was very neat to read what she was feeling during the whole movie, especially during the attack scene, which is very very short. If you have not read this book, I strongly recommend it. There is a whole chapter about her faith and why she is a Christian, and the last chapter talks about how she knows that God has a plan for her life. One of my favorite lines out of the book was, "I think that if I can help other people find hope in God, then that is worth losing my arm for." OK. WOW. Thats all I have to say about that. I read that and I was like, "Wow. Thats crazy." But at the same time you have to say, "How incredible. Someone has gone through a tragedy like that and can still praise God like that. Amazing." She is truly an inspiration to me, by her faith and really everything about her. I would go back and read this book again tomorrow. Except I am going to read Bridge to Terabithia(which probably means another book post)! Anyway- all this to say, Soul Surfer the book was amazing and you should read it. It is now one of my favorite books, but not better than Little Women of course!

P.S. Who is excited that Scotty won American Idol? I am...let me make it clear that we never watch then show! But Scotty was from one of our church member's brother's church, so we were cheering for him! I thought that Lauren was really pretty though, and her voice was awesome! But we were cheering for Scotty.

P.S.S. My birthday is in two months...just saying. Alright I'm done now.
