        Gotta be honest, this book totally creeped me out for a week. I was afraid to even go near any lakes, ponds, and rivers. You think nothing's going on, and you're just swimming....then BAM--shark attack.

            It was really good, especially if your interested in sharks, like me. I would recommend reading it, and its really interesting when you get further into the book.
