A beautiful and unique animal story from Mimi Thebo. Darcy is a young girl who has recently suffered pneumonia and is recovering in her parents' cabin in Yellowstone Park when she meets an injured bear.

One thing that particularly stood out for me about this book was the depiction of Darcy's illness - as a chronically ill person I'm always on the lookout for books that do this well. You could really feel Darcy's limitations and I liked how she related to the sick bear.

A great book, and nice to see a shorter read as well. I'd recommend this for fans of Michael Morpurgo.
