Book Review: Body & Soul

Title: Body & Soul
Subtitle: A Girl's Guide to a Fit, Fun and Fabulous Life
Author: Bethany Hamilton
Genre: Youth/Inspirational/Health&Fitness

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book.  Did I mention that I LOVE this book? If you know a tween or teen girl, then you need to get them this book!

In case you have been living under a rock, Bethany Hamilton is the teenage surfer that lost her entire left arm in a shark attack in 2003.  She tells her inspirational story in the book and movie Soul Surfer.  Bethany has an amazingly positive outlook on life despite her challenges.

Bethany wrote this book as a fitness and nutrition guide.  The nice part is that the book covers both the physical and spiritual fitness of your teen.  The book is over sized, colorful and well written.  I am far from being "cool" but I think that this book is "hip" for tweens and teens.

My favorite parts of the book are Bethany's Soul Secrets.  There are blue surfboard scattered throughout the book that contain a scripture or inspirational quote from Bethany.  She is a fantastic role model for any teen.  She brings everything that she suggests in her book back to the Bible and what God tells us.

It is my hope that my teenage nieces will read this book when I give it to them this summer.  There is something in this book that every teen can relate to!

 Disclaimer:  I received this book for free from the Book Look Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review.
