"Shark Assault: An Amazing Story of Survival is a non-fiction narrative about Nicole Moore, a nurse from Orangeville, Ontario, who was standing waist deep in the ocean while vacationing at a resort in Cancun, Mexico. Suddenly, she was brutally and savagely attacked twice by a bull shark, the most vicious shark in the sea. She came very close to death, losing more than 60% of her blood (a condition humans are not meant to survive). As a result of the shark bites, her left arm was amputated and she very nearly lost her leg, enduring numerous invasive surgeries in the process. But the book also reveals Nicole's amazing strength of mind. Not only did she persevere through the brutality of the shark strikes, she also overcame unhappy events in her youth that would have sidelined most people. She has lived through these assaults and readers discover that today, she is a happy, optimistic and positive individual.
