"Clash" by Rick Bundschuh

The winner of the Christmas/New Year’s giveaway, “The Golden Braid” by Melanie Dickerson is Charis L. Z., I emailed you for your address! :)

About this book:

  “It took real faith and courage to get Bethany back on a surfboard after losing her arm to a shark. The Soul Surfer fiction series is based on the life of surfer star Bethany Hamilton, as she and her friends discover God's love and guidance as they tackle the waves life hands them. In book one, Clash, Bethany’s tight-knit group experiences conflict when a new girl named Jenna crowds fourteen-year-old Bethany and her friends—until a wake-up call shows Bethany that sometimes you have to be willing to make hard choices if you want to do the right thing.”

My personal Rating-
I’ve always looked up to Bethany Hamilton since first seeing Soul Surfer when it came out. This, I can tell, will be good series with lots of Spiritual Content! :)
