A NovelBook - 2014
Told from the point of view of a six-year-old child, The Bear is the story of Anna and her little brother, Stick--two young children forced to fend for themselves in Algonquin Park after a black bear attacks their parents. A gripping and mesmerizing exploration of the child psyche, this is a survival story unlike any other, one that asks what it takes to survive in the wilderness and what happens when predation comes from within.

Difficult to read the ramble of a 5-year-old's first person narrative but hang in there. A fantastic (and at times weepy) read. Recommended by Laura.
Going on a camping trip? Think again after reading this harrowing survival story of two young children whose parents have been eaten by a bear.
