Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen
Book DescriptionAfter severely injuring Peter Driscal in an empty parking lot, mischief-maker Cole Matthews is in major trouble. But instead of jail time, Cole is given an alternative: a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island.This program called Circle Justice is based on Native American traditions that provide healing for the criminal mind. To avoid serious jail time, Cole resolves to go. While there, Cole is mauled by a mysterious white bear and left for dead. Thoughts of his abusive parents, helpless Peter, and his intense anger cause him to examine the root of his troubled ways and seek redemption from the spirit bear that attacked him, from his victims, and from himself. Author Ben Mikaelson delivers a poignant depiction of the vicious cycle of violence and one boy s journey to healing.Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts"
