Unsinkable: A Young Woman’s Courageous Battle on the High Seas is the story of Abby Sunderland, who at 16 tried to become the youngest person to ever sail solo, nonstop, and unassisted around the world. And it is an amazing story indeed, the logistics are intricate and the obstacles sometimes insurmountable. Abby survives the attempt after becoming disabled in the Indian Ocean.
The book tells Abby’s story from her point of view. She explains how the trip changed her life and increased her faith in God and in her own abilities. She not only completed a geographical voyage, but a voyage of personal discovery as well. It is a great story of perseverance, faith and personal growth!
I would recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in sailing or wants to accomplish their own goal in life, it is truly inspiring!
