This is one of my favorite books. It is about a boy name Cole who has some trouble with the law. He gets in a fight with a young boy and Cole gets arrested and has a choice of either going to jail or go to a remote island in Alaska. He has a few encounters with a mysterious white bear. He begins to change his life and become a better person. He is alone in the Alaskan wilderness with nothing to think about but the path ahead of him. I would definitely recommend this book.
Good Points
It was a very suspenseful book about change. The characters were very interesting and always making you want to read more.

Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen is my favorite book yet. I rated it a nice 5. let my tell you a little bit of what this book is about. It is a wonderful book about a kid named Cole Mathews that gets into trouble a lot with the community. He also gets angry a lot (some times for the littlest reasons). He is sent to an island for a year all alone to think about himself and his decisions. A white bear attacks him and while lying there dying, Cole has a chance to think about his life.
What I like about this book most is that Cole finds a way to change and make is horrible life better. My dad is reading this book too and he likes it just as much as me. I recommend this book to you and youll find out how good it is& so start reading!
