Listener Opinions

    " What I really liked about this novel in verse is how it showed that Jane had to redefine herself, to remake herself, after her accident. She had to learn to accept herself before others could accept her, and she had to be willing to explore new options. I read it all in one sitting--couldn't put it down! This would make a great discussion book. "

    " Good story of high school aged Jane and her recovery from losing her right arm in a shark attack. Fine for MS library. "

    " This is similar to the real life story of Bethany Hamilton who was attacked by a shark and went back to surfing again shortly after. Jane was also attacked by a shark and lost her right arm but has a great deal of difficulty dealing with her disability. She was a gifted artist and struggles with learning to do things now with her left hand. It is an interesting way to tell the story with Jane's personal thoughts, letters from concerned strangers and news accounts. I think the author did a good job portraying the inner turmoil of a shark victim and amputee. I was a little bothered with the end. It didn't feel like enough of the loose ends were dealt with, but all in all it seemed like a realistic story. "

    " i thought it was brilliantly written "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/19/2014

    " This book is awesome. Its about a girl who loses her arm. How sadddd... She learns she can do whatever she wants it just takes a little time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/14/2014

    " I really liked how the book was written. I know that it was a fiction book but how it was written made it seem so real like it had actually happened. The book is composed of newspaper articles, e mails, and letters and diary entries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaisha Taveras | 12/30/2013

    " what i captured from this book so far is that she got bit bye a shark and shes not afraid of it happening again so in this little part i learned to face youre fears . everybody calls her shark girl because she got bite by a shark and shes not afraid "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maddie | 12/12/2013

    " i really liked it, but some of the letters were writen by total jerks "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber | 12/11/2013

    " A very good story of a girl who learns to live with her arm amputated, and how hard it was. The story was short but nonetheless good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 11/3/2013

    " I thought this book was VERY good. I thought Shark Girl had great voice! I really liked the characters and I liked how it had a different plot than Soul Surfer even though the same thing happened. You should read this book even if you don't like poetry!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Corryn | 10/21/2013

    " this was an ok book, probably worth the read, not life changing, a little cheesy, quick read though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cierrah | 10/11/2013

    " I think this book is so great and good for people to read and I wish that people would read this book!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison Relyea | 9/13/2013

    " This was such a good book. I felt so bad for Jane because she lost her arm to a shark. I liked how she grew to live with it, though. She was strong and brave. I certainly couldn't do it. This was a heart warming story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kayley Mae Reynolds*:) | 7/16/2013

    " It was a really good book and i loved it there were times but it was so good and here were times when it was slow. the teenager was strong "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Greene | 7/2/2013

    " Loved the style; holds the interest of high school readers. Disliked the fact that it is a fictionalized account of a similar high-profile accident and its aftermath. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracie | 6/13/2013

    " I absolutely loved this book. When I opened it and the intro talked about sizing the font for the poetry to fit on my ereader properly I groaned. I am not a lover of poetry. This, I loved. The emotion was portrayed perfectly. I enjoyed the characters and their growth. Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amandayates | 4/19/2013

    " Fantastic! Terrific page turner. Engaging the entire way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sami | 4/18/2013

    " I really felt like I could feel the pain she felt, even though it wasn't a very up-beat, fast, action packed novel (like I'm used to it kept me interested until the end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ms.Goldstein | 4/14/2013

    " This book is written all is free verse, so it's an interesting break from most of the novels I read. I liked this book, but I didn't love it, maybe because I never felt like I got to know any of the characters all that well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Youngcb | 3/21/2013

    " This ia a great book all about courage, strength and love. this book was a very interesting book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/24/2013

    " About a girl struggling after losing her arm in a shark attack. Told in verse, which I love, and it works especially well with such an emotional topic. "
