This book was extremely difficult to read. This story was about a girl who lives through a shark attack and loses a limb. Throughout the book, you read of her thoughts on how she could avoid the accident or all the troubles she's encountering. In other words, she complains the whole time and doesn't appreciate any of the help thats going on around her. I would constantly roll my eyes of how ridiculous the author sounded. We all go through our problems and for me to sit and read about a drama queen, it wasted my time. I do feel sorry for when such events happen to people but I myself am a victim of an unfortunate event that changed my life...But not even I would write a book that sounds so nagging.

    I’ve had this book on my Kindle for a while. I watched the movie over the holidays and decided I would read the book. Little did I know the two were not related. However, I really enjoyed the book. There were a lot of similarities between the two.

    The author has written the story more like a diary from Jane’s perspective. Picking up in the hospital after waking up for the injury, the story moves very quickly. The author has clearly covered all areas of concern for Jane and how she is able to deal with them. From interactions with her mom and brother, and extended family, all concerned about her returning to daily activities and being an artist. To her friends and their willingness to accept her with her being different now. And my favorite part was the relationship she makes with Justin, a little boy dealing with the loss of his leg.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who has seen the movie and enjoyed it. A very quick read. And also would recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with anything in their life. There was a great message about picking up and continuing on.

    She wines alot. If i were here id b thanking God for sparing my life. That was the lesser evil tht shark could've killed her or ate her. She couldve died but instead she decides to complain and its annoying to read. This book was okay.

    Jane Arrowood was a regular teen age girl who loved to draw. She had a perfectly typical life until one day on the beach a shark attacked her. She lost her right arm in the process. After this dramatic event, it changes Jane's life forever. She must learn to cope with the changes that come upon her, along with the fact that she becomes naturally famous due to a person that video taped this happeneing. She copes with her struggles and learns to become a brand new person.

    This book was okay! I liked the concept it was pretty interesting but throughout the book it got a little boring... And I didn't really like the way it was written. Not the best book I've ever read, but not bad!

    I would reccomend this book to probably girls. It talks about the struggles a teenage girl has to face, and how she copes with her problems. Good book! :)
