Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen


fivestars.jpg A teen named Cole Mathews smashes a kid’s head causing permanent damage. Instead of jail he’s deserted in Alaska. Yet being mauled and almost killed changes this behavior. This was really the first book that encouraged me to pick up books. I could not stop once I began. It has action on top of action. It changed my behavior too and taught me to be so grateful for what I have.

    I work at a residential maximum security facility for youth who have committed serious crimes and have been certified as adults. This book helped change the life of a young man I work with directly. He has read it over and over, and shares his copy with others who are having problems. It is now a book I purchase numerous copies to share with others.

    the first time i read this book was in the 5th grade and i cried towards the end when peter and cole saw the spirit bear. thisis my thir od fourth time reading this book and i don’t get tired of it. it is my favorite book and now i understand it more than i did in the 5th grade; with everytime i read it i learned or found out something i hadn’t understoood before. this is an excellent book; the only part i hate is the end when i close it and realize there’s no more to read!!:) thank you Mikaelsen!!!

    just finished this book and it’s great. and like many it also made me want to start reading any book that looked good. and every one should read saving josh migwier. (don’t know how to spell it=0) it’s about a boy who find a bear and runs away with it. by its cover no one would realy pick it up but it’s great. Congrates on reading the book by the way!

  22. mad max Says:

    I had to read this book for my reading class and i couldn’t put the book down. Usually i don’t read at home but because of the suspense that happens in the book i couldn’t put it down. There is just one thing i think should happen now, i think you should make a movie if you already haven’t.

    I’m doing a research on this book. I’m a senior and i usually don’t like research papers, but this book is changing my mind. I love it. I’m at the part where Cole gets out of the hospital. Touch Spirit Bear is a life changing story.
