SURFING ON A BANANA PEEL tells the true story of a person on a spiritual path that took an entirely unexpected and extraordinary direction while dealing with a serious illness in her family. She cleanses herself from spiritual mud she plunged into with good intentions in her past, and she spontaneously discovers a new point of view, absorbs previously unknown energy, peeks behind the hidden line of this world and receives truthful information from a new source. Her endeavor leads on a journey to spiritual evolution all while learning of alternative ways to cure and prevent cancer and other diseases.
The first part of SURFING ON A BANANA PEEL, the narrator focuses too much on the physical circumstances of her life. She is angry and disappointed by lies and manipulations she used to genuinely believe. She separates seed from chaff in all areas of life and fills trashcans with the unneeded, not realizing the positive impact the whole disaster will bring. This, part one, also extensively describes alternative methods to preventing cancer and other diseases. The first part is narrated in past tense, symbolizing the outdated state of mind and her efforts to overcome it.
Part two is narrated in present time, where physical circumstances no longer have power, the narrator simply accepts them and doesn’t try to fight them, thanks to a new point of view. This second part is written in a diary form. That what may appear scattered is intentional, as it expresses the most important thought, feeling or information of the given day. A leap between days is present because each day brings only that, what we deserve. The progress of days the narrator passes through with a different approach not only creates an interesting narration of her spiritual evolvement, but also inspires you, the readers, with solutions to your life crises, problems, and search for inner peace. Surfing smoothly, without falling, is simply possible even on the surface of a stormy ocean, as long as we know how. This petite book is not a guide to surfing, but a companion offering ways to find the balance needed to discover the true path to personal evolution while preventing and treating cancer and other diseases.

Reviewed by Laura Reynolds for Readers' Favorite “Surfing on a Banana Peel” opens with an account of how the author, Brona Fanelle, spent the better part of her early life desperately searching for spiritual meaning and balance. That is until her mother was diagnosed with cancer. Through her mother’s battle and recovery from cancer, Fanelle uncovers the revelations that led her to the balance and meaning that she was searching for. These revelations make up the gist of this non-fiction account. Fanelle discovered that by eating a raw, vegan diet, eliminating acid-forming foods, and drinking pure water (among other health changes) led her to the spiritual awakening that she longed for. The last half of the book is then comprised of journal-type writings of Fanelle’s ‘new’ spiritual life. I was initially drawn to the title/subject of this book as I have a great interest in how diet can affect our physical and spiritual lives. I find it truly remarkable how some people with cancer beat the disease through natural healing. Fanelle details the changes that she and her mother made in order to win the battle against cancer. I loved reading about these changes and how they transformed their lives. The author perfectly explains how different foods will affect the pH balance inside of our bodies, among many other processes that occur within. Although it is very well-written, the author lost me as she detailed her spiritual awakenings that occurred due to her clean, raw diet. However, other readers may be more ‘new age’ with the spiritual principles that Fanelle writes about.
