'Soul Surfer' shares her advice

Does this woman know any fear?
As if her amazing recovery from a shark attack that cost her an arm weren't inspiration enough, Bethany Hamilton has added published author to her resume.
"Soul Surfer," the film chronicling her experience hits theater screens today. Check out the AP's review.

The 21-year-old now also has two books:
Here's a bit of info on the works according to a news release from the publisher: 

 Courageous teen surfing star Bethany Hamilton encourages young girls everywhere in her own words inspired from the Bible in this devotional book (Zonderkidz; March 2011; 9.99). No subject—from boys to peer pressure and self-esteem—is left unnoticed as Bethany becomes a young girl’s confidante and champion with just a flip of each page. A never-before-seen tucked-in feature will give girls “inside scoop” on Bethany herself, in her own thoughtful words.

Bethany answers your burning questions in Ask Bethany (Zonderkidz; March 2011; 9.99), her personal thank-you to readers who have been inspired by her story. In her signature honest yet comforting style, Bethany shares inspirational anecdotes from her own life to let readers know they are not alone in their struggles. Verses from the Bible add even more poignancy to Bethany’s heart-to-heart answers while readers surf the book.
