Several years ago, I read Touching Spirit Bear. I was teaching at risk students at the time, and I immediately turned it into a read aloud. When I realized that Mikaelsen had written a sequel, I wasted no time picking it up. This book follows Cole Matthews (a juvenile delinquent who has been rehabilitated in a wilderness program) as he re-enters his former life in a high school rife with bullies and gangs. While some of the situations may seem a tiny bit contrived, the emotions that Cole and his friends deal with are very real. They are constantly asking, "How are we supposed to deal with this?" but no one seems to offer any real conclusions. Can Cole and his one true friend maintain the changes that have occurred in themselves and make a difference to their school that desperately needs a change?
