    Sharks

    I am truely petrified of sharks ever since i saw the movie Soul Surfer. Wow what a hard time in her life to get through. My heart reaches out to Bethany and her family. I just love the faith her family had and respect them so much.

    Good :)

    Perfect and super interesting. It is a recount of shark attack stories, instead of an in-depht look at shark behaviour from a scientific p.o.v. It left me wanting to read more and more.
    If you expect this to make you reasons to feel less scared of sharks, look elsewhere.
