Shark Girl by Kelly Bingham
Girl goes on vacation. Girl goes swimming. Girl attacked by shark. Girl must have arm amputated due to shark bite. Girl is an artist. Will she be an artist again? Girl recovers.
This story was ripped from the headlines and is told in prose which makes it a super fast read. Shark girl is likeable and her emotions and feelings seem real enough. Although the storyline is unique, the novel isn't very attention grabbing and is quite predictable. I think the cover and storyline will appeal to teens, but once they begin reading I think they will give up pretty easily. I give it a nay.
