When he brutally attacks a classmate his punishment is an alternative path based on a Native American tradition called the Circle Justice. Banished to a remote Alaskan island, Cole's rage and isolation lead him to another brazen attack. This time, his intended victim is the Spirit Bear of Native American legend--and the clumsy assault ends with Cole mauled nearly to death. Rescuers arrive to save Cole's life, but it is the attack of the Spirit Bear that is the start of Cole's long journey to accepting responsibility for his life and saving his soul.

Publisher Description:
Within Cole Matthews lies anger, rage, and hate. Cole has been stealing and fighting for years. This time he caught Peter Driscal in the parking lot and smashed his head against the sidewalk. Now, Peter may have permanent brain damage-and Cole is in the biggest trouble of his life.

Cole receives a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island. There, he is mauled by a mysterious white bear of Native American legend. Hideously injured, Cole waits for death. His thoughts shift from anger to humility. To survive, he must stop blaming others and take responsibility for his life. Rescuers arrive to save Cole's body, but it is the attack of the Spirit Bear that may save his soul.
