Publisher's Summary

Within Cole Matthews lies anger, rage, and hate. Cole has been stealing and fighting for years. This time he caught Peter Driscal in the parking lot and smashed his head against the sidewalk. Now, Peter may have permanent brain damage - and Cole is in the biggest trouble of his life.

Cole receives a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island. There, he is mauled by a mysterious white bear of Native American legend. Hideously injured, Cole waits for death. His thoughts shift from anger to humility. To survive, he must stop blaming others and take responsibility for his life. Rescuers arrive to save Cole's body, but it is the attack of the Spirit Bear that may save his soul.

    "Phenominal Book!"

    This is a young adult book that I read with my class, however, I have listened to it several times on my own. It is appealing to all ages, especially if you are curious about bullys and juvenile delinquents and why they act the way they do. It is touching and spiritual on many levels. It helps us to understand why children act out, what makes them appear to be so angry, and what experiences might change them. I highly recommend this book for pre-teens/teens and adults alike.

    "a heart for kids in trouble"

    This book was introduced to me by a teen patient in my pediatrics office as mandatory reading in his high school English class and the concept of tribal justice dispatching a teen to an island to fend for himself was fascinating. But I could not put it down. It is a story of redemption at a gut wrenching level of self discovery.

    "Not what I expected - minor spoiler alert"

    First, this book is not for children. The emotions are too raw. The violence is too graphic. And it took me too long to get into it.

    Spoiler alert:

    I almost quit listening during the bear mauling. I probably would have if it weren't for the fact that this was my book club's monthly selection. Though actually I never would've made it past the cover blurb or the audio excerpt otherwise. Did not sound at all credible or entertaining.

    The audible excerpt you hear before purchasing is terrible. The book, however, is amazing. And the performance seems to improve vastly as the book progresses.

    Without giving away anything else, I can only say that it gripped me about halfway in - enough to abandon my morning radio news show and my evening book read.

    It is not trite or hackneyed. The message here is unique and made me reconsider whether I personally have truly moved past some life events with varying degrees of trauma.

    I loved this book.

    "My son has to read this book for school. "

    I read this book to thinking I may help my son understand some of the concepts. Turns out this is a great story that will lead to some fun projects in class. Kudos to his English teacher, Ms Lapointe . Worth it!
