This book is the sequel to touching spirit bear. It's very different than the previous book because cole has to deal with going back to school and using the strategies he learned on the island to deal with his anger management. The boy he picked on Peter was able to forgive him which takes a lot of strength. I really like the friendship between Cole and Peter in this book because peter is able to help cole and vice versa. I would suggest that you read the first book before this one in order to have an understanding of what has been happening. I would recommend this book to people of all ages . -@nae1227211 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I am 12 years old and I read Touching Spirit Bear just for a school project. When I finished reading Ghost of Spirit Bear I had a whole new way of looking at the world. I recommended it to any tween or teen that is having bully problems or just needs a really good read.

A phenomenal read for anyone wanting to be inspired, interested, or just a part of something real. Struggling or disinterested readers should give this novel, or its predecessor "Touching Spirit Bear" a try. Guaranteed to keep even those kids who hate reading from putting down the book. Boys especially seem to love the story and connect to the main character. Enjoy!

Ms. Kennedy hesitated, pursing her lips before answering "My husband died a few years ago, of bone cancer".
" I'm sorry" said Cole
" So am I" she replied " We both fought his cancer for five years. Compared to cancer, osmehow a bully doesn't seem so tough
