Book Review: Ghost of Spirit Bear

Ghost of Spirit Bear

Ghost of Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen

My Review

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

While Touching Spirit Bear took place primarily on a remote island in Alaska, Ghost of Spirit Bear takes place in back in the grim and often violent urban high school Cole came from. Doing the right thing was easy on the island, but back in the city the right thing to do isn't so easy to see. This story is about how Cole figured it out, and helps make some major changes in his school, while sending an underlying message that happiness is a choice - no matter what's going on around you. At one part this was described as a semi passing by: you can jump in front of it and be miserable (having the worst reaction to this event) or you can smile and wave at the driver as he goes by. It's all about making your own reality, a message I think more people need to learn.
