Touching Spirit Bear (Coles Journey)
We recently finished reading Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelson and it was fun to read. If you read this book you’ll know what I mean. It was a rough road for Cole Mathews, but he has really changed. He can now control his anger, he does not lie and he just wants a fresh new start! At the beginning, all Cole wanted to do was going to the island and avoid going to jail, but then he got mauled by the Spirit Bear. The Spirit Bear is a mythical bear that can change your soul this is coming from the Native Americans.
After he got out of the hospital Garvey and Edwin got custody of Cole and Cole got a second chance. This time Cole didn’t want to avoid jail because he knew this was his last chance. But he didn’t know about who else had changed to? It was Cole’s mom she finally stopped drinking and started to take charge and take care of Cole. But she knew she couldn’t help him now so she said when you come out we will have a fresh start. 10 months later Edwin came to the island and spoke in devastation to Cole Peter the kid you beat up tried to commit suicide.
Cole was speech less till he said I can help Peter? A few days later he came again, he tried to do it again. Cole said if he brought Peter to the island he would help him so he said I’ll try and the answer was yes. When he arrived it took a while before they started to talk but it happened. But that was beginning! Slowly there becoming friends but time will heal all wounds. This has been Cole’s journey The Reflection.
One of my favorite events of the story was when Edwin said life’s a hot dog. You may not get it but it was suppose to be like a metaphor. Another one of my favorite events was when Cole wanted to help Peter enjoy life again. Do you remember earlier in this article Peter wanted to commit suicide well after that he felt sorry and helped Peter? When Cole got mauled by the bear was my most favorite part of the book. Do you want to know why because that’s when it a changed?
