"Burned" by Rick Bundschuh

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 two, Burned, fourteen-year-old Bethany thought she was going to Samoa with her family to surf—but it turns out God has much more planned for her when she meets an angry, young man and helps him learn to love again.”
