"Storm" 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 three, Storm, a car wash and a surf-a-thon with inflatable toys seem like great fundraisers for a mission trip for Bethany’s youth group. But an unexpected and life-threatening challenge for Bethany and her friend Holly brings a mysterious twist to their plans for Mexico.”

My personal Rating-
I’m not a beach girl at all, but if it’s true that Kauai doesn’t have snakes…Aloha, y’all! ;)
Hahaha, really though, “Storm” had tons of Spiritual Content like its previous books in the series. Those who enjoyed those, should enjoy this one as well. :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
