A remarkable story of a bear and the coming-of-age journey of a teenage boy.

Thirteen-year-old Jason is on the cusp of manhood, striving to fi nd his place at school and at home—especially after his mother has abandoned them and his father is left to deal with his own anger. When Jason and his father encounter a bear while out hunting, they shoot and kill it, not realizing that they have left a cub without its mother. When Sasquot of the Penobscot Tribe, a part of the Bear Family, discovers what they have done, he decides that Jason needs a lesson in caring for God’s creatures. Thus begins a year that Jason will never forget as he begins to care and train the cub in order for it to survive. As Jason forms a bond with the bear, he, in turn, learns valuable lessons for life.

“Fans of classic, enthralling adventure (and I’m one) are in for a rare treat.”-Josh Lieb New York Times best-selling and Emmy Award-winning author of I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to Be Your Class President

 

My Review

🌕🌕🌕🌕🌗

An incredible coming of age story that all ages can appreciate. Douglas weaves a tale taking you on an emotional journey. Jason is a very relatable, loveable and believable character. I enjoyed watching him grow throughout the book. The native American culture and influence on Jason was spot on. Great life lesson that is told in a phenomenal way. As a fan of all animals I connected to this story on so many ways. Huge fan!

Thanks to Rockstar Book Tours and Douglas for my gifted copy!
