a GREAT book......

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes..... I LOVe to pick up books just about anywhere.... and "biographies" or books based on "true stories" are some of my favorites....The other day I ran across this book, and HAD to have it.... It is Petra Nemcova's story about her life, mostly the 2 years leading to the time she found herself stuck in the Tsunami in Thailand a few years back 2004 to be exact.... her story is amazing, and sad, but amazing nonetheless.... she goes into dertail about how helpless she felt, and about how she felt when finding out that the "love of her life" had not made it... It also went a little bit into what she's been doing since that fatefull day The story was amazing, I would recomend it as a great book to read!! :) Now off to find another one to read.... anyone have any suggestions?? I'd love to hear them!

This is the lady that was hugging a tree through the tsunami? Didn't she lose her leg? And her boyfriend? Is she standing on the beach (on the cover) to see if either will wash back up?
