About This Book

Whatever you do to the animals, you do to yourself. Remember that.

At fifteen, Cole Matthews has been fighting and stealing for years. The punishment for smashing Peter Driscal's skull into the sidewalk — his most recent crime — is harsh. This time, Cole will have to choose between prison and Circle Justice. He will live either behind bars or in isolation for one year.

Cole chooses Circle Justice. But in the first days of his banishment to a remote Alaskan island, he is mauled by a mysterious white bear and nearly dies. Will the attack of the spirit bear destroy Cole's life or save his soul?

Praise for Touching Spirit Bear

"Mikaelsen tells a gory survival story that evolves into an inspiring and sophisticated coming-of-age journey... Cole's journey to self-realization and truth through hardship, confrontation, and ritual will fascinate young and old...and have everyone waiting for the sequel." — Voice of Youth Advocates
