Book Review (Unsinkable)

http://www.amazon.com/Unsinkable-You...7630161&sr=1-1

I had no real intention of reading this book but it sort of just happened.

This is the young women 16 years old who set out to sail around the world like her brother Zac had done.
She didn't make it being rolled by a rogue wave in the middle of the Indian ocean.
I did remember however that she was sailing an Open 40 sailboat which is pretty high-tech and that she was rolled while below.
I wanted to know if she was actively sailing the boat or as a matter of strategy going below whenever the weather got bad. I'll start a new thread about that subject.
So I was on Amazon and noticed that they had a Kindle version. I have the kindle reader on my Ipad and about two clicks later I owned it.
They make it amazingly easy to spend eight bucks.
Once I started reading it I got hooked and didn't finish until 1AM.

Fun read, amazing girl and family some lessons but that is the next thread.
