  • Likes A major character is living with CF I enjoy books that recognize physical and mental diagnoses with taste and a realistic point of view.Having lived in the San Francisco area, it was nice to visit it by reading.With the movie Chasing Mavericks coming out, I enjoyed reading about Mavericks.I also went on a whale watching tour while reading the book, and it was amusing to read about a similar tour at the same time.Dislikes The banter between Bee and Tommy is only mildly amusing and sounds ex [...]


  • I started this book because it was short and I just wanted something light to read I really didn t know what to expect, and at first I didn t even think I d like it I don t care for sharks nor do I really care about learning about sharks and it s laden with shark facts But I gave it a try anyway.The beginning is the main reason why it s not getting a rating higher than a 3 star The author kept using the term challenged kids in reference to children with intellectual or physical disabilities He d [...]

  • This book was decent I liked how it added in a character with a life threatening illness to add reality to the book but also how the older sister always felt responsible for her younger brother due to his CF Being a Special Education major, I see this alot with siblings who have younger or even older siblings with health issues or disabilities where they have to grow up a little too fast you see that within this book.The real issue I had with this book this could be just me is that the focus on [...]

  • Good book It s the story of a girl whose younger brother has cystic fibrosis She s very dedicated to him, and he s practically a saint but even given that standard setup, you can t help but be captivated by them both She is determined that he have this Wish granted by a foundation and makes sure he does everything he has wanted to do But does she risk too much Lots of information about sharks all along the way Touching and highly readable.


  • I was a bit disappointed I thought the set up took too long at the beginning and I really just wanted the story to get going But, I really loved the concept of this story and I realize it would be difficult to tell without setting up the story I didn t fully understand the relationship between Bee and her mom I guess one of those love hate ones Not a terrible story It I just wish the beginning moved faster.


  • I really liked this booke main character Bea had a great relationship with her little brother, Tommy I enjoyed the romance between Bea and Little Brew, the friendship between Ty and Tommy, and how 3 dimensional the characters seemed I thought it was very well done and different from anything I ve read recently.


  • This book was pretty good I was sad at the end, but I m not exactly sure why It was a good read, definitely not a favorite, or one that I would say is my type exactly, but it was a book that made me think and so I recommend it to anyone, especially someone that s not particularly familiar with sharks great white to be specific J


  • Story of Tommy and Bee and there day of adventure on the CA coast Tommy has cystic fibrosis and has a wish to swim with a great white shark They do the next best thing and go out with a surfer who has been attacked by a great white and lived to tell about it The day is not what they expected Another great read by Monninger He knows how to spin a tale about ordinary kinds of people.


  • I thought the idea of this book is so awesome I love that it s about sharks and how we need to live in harmony with them I also like that there is a disabled character and I like that both of the characters are dealing with the illness and their mother I also really enjoyed the shark tips And I give props to the author because he is a man writing from the perspective of a teenage girl.

  • This book really held my interest The main character was typical of a lot of boys I see in my school library really into sharks or snakes, or dinosaurs, or cars, etc His older sister was loving, yet impulsive and the situation in which they found themselves can happen all too soon to young kids.


  • This was a beautiful story of love and sacrifice between siblings and friends and strangers Since I m vacationing in Huntington Beach, the subjects of sharks and surfing are particularly close right now Will Bee s brother s disease prevent him from his dream of swimming with sharks


  • Bee, her mother, and her brother who has CF go on a Make A Wish kind of trip to San Francisco to see Great White Sharks near the Farallon Islands Things don t quite work out as they planned Good story, read it right through Now what do I do
