ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "Soul Surfer," by Bethany Hamilton published by Simon & Schuster MTV Books. It is a true-life story turned into a book. The deal came about through the MTV networks Inc., which featured Hamilton on the show "True Life" shortly after the Hawaiian teen lost an arm in a shark attack while surfing. The network leveraged its partnership with MTV Books to produce the book, which, as the title suggests, has a strong spiritual bent. The book is also a niche title for the surfer market.
