This book is such a gem!! It's heart-warming and thought-provoking. Charlie is an 8th grade boy who has lost his mother, has trouble relating to his father, and is trying to find his social place at school. Things are not happy for him, and then he sees a grizzly bear in the wild - and somehow they connect. The grizzly comes home with him and stays in his barn - and apparently is a reincarnated Civil War soldier with a message.

Like his other book, A Dog's Purpose, Cameron has written a book with an animal as a main character - one who is more than "just" an animal. Even though this book focuses mostly on Charlie, the magic of an animal being "more" is a big part of the novel, and is what makes both books so magical.
