When I first read 'Touching Spirit Bear', I thought it would be boring. But I decided to read it anyway (Like I had a choice). The characters were all unique and the author did a great job of bringing me into the story.
When the main character, Cole, nearly died, it felt like the whole story had flipped upside-down. The bully that Cole was known as saw the world in a different perspective, which was really important for the story, and taught us that anyone can change their ways.
I also learned a few things from the story, like life 'is what you make of it'(which taught me that you can look at things any way you want; good or bad), 'animals have something to teach us'(which tought me that you can learn something from any animal, like from taking care of a pet), and 'everything is part of a big circle'(which taught me that everything is connected in some way; even frogs and space dust).
All in all, Touching Spirit Bear was a book that I enjoyed a lot, and I think that it is a book which you can learn some pretty important lessons from.
