Not sure if any one can remember what they did when they were 16 years old. But Abby Sunderland can sure remember what she did when she was that age. Tried to sailed solo around the world, and she nearly did it. But maybe God has his own plans for her.
The book is by her and point of views from those involved. From her dad to the technical guys who guided her when she had mechanical problem. Doing some thing solo is never easy but to be at sea all alone can be very difficult if the mental strength was not strong enough. Certain sections of the book brought tears to my eyes cause of what she had to go through.
She overcame adversity by knowing what she can or cannot do and her faith in God. I would recommend this book to every teenager/even adults out there who is facing adversity.
In my opinion I give this book a rating 5 out of 5.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Booksneeze bloggers program. I was not asked to write a positive review and thus, the book review is 100% my own opinion.
