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.

    " It was good for a while, then I lost interest. I mean, this kid is a wimp, who can throw a few punches. "

    " I really liked this book. I think that it really managed to stay true to how the main character would act and the change that took place in him. I think that this book really portrays taking responsibility for ones own actions and what it takes to get to that point very well. There are is a small amount of gore violence. I would recommend this book to ages 14/15+. "
