I am so glad I did because this book was extremely good! I'm pretty sure I enjoyed it more than the first book. However, it is a YA novel so the ending is very unrealistic, but the rest of the book is very good and has great life lessons. Jun 21, Ahmad Sharabiani marked it as to-read Shelves: Aug 04, Ashley rated it really liked it.

I read the first book in the series, Touching Spirit Bear years ago and the book had impacted me in a way no other books could. I thought it was the best children's book I'd ever read as Cole's story helped me grow by inspiring me to control my anger and find my inner strength. Little did I expect that my opportunity to read Ghost of Spirit Bear came this year, about seven years after I read I read the first book in the series, Touching Spirit Bear years ago and the book had impacted me in a way no other books could.

Upon getting hold of Ghost of Spirit Bear, I started reading it with mixed feelings of anticipation and doubt. Whilst hoping that it would produce the same serene effect on me the way it's prequel did, I was also feeling sceptical about how much the book would impact me as I am not who I was before. This book was truly jaw-dropping! It's an extremely inspirational story about how Cole and Peter mature and shine and I learnt a lot from them. Cole and Peter were heroic figures who empower others by empowering themselves.

They apply what they've learnt on the Alaskan island in their previous adventure in their daily lives, inspiring me to apply what I've learnt from them. Oct 01, Syed Absar rated it it was amazing. Ghost Of Spirit Bear By: The characters in this story seem real because they are normal kids in high school and, this could really happen. The main character looked like a mean bully at first but then as I read more he became a good person. Cole Mathews said to peter that "lets go sit in the freezer to release all of our anger" This tells me that Cole is creative by thinking of ways to release his anger.

When Cole Mathews was getting bullied and beaten up by Kieth, he did not fight back this tells me that he was a good person and he was relaxed. I really liked this book because it was really interesting and the suspense was good. The theme of this story was Cole going back to his high school and facing many challenges. I think that theme is correct because Cole had to face many challenges in the story. Dec 23, Caleb rated it liked it. Not as good as the first book. Apr 21, Denice rated it really liked it.

This book is about a boy named Cole who has just gotten back from being isolated on an Alaskin penninsula. This is a sequel to Touching Spirit Bear which was a very good book.

I thought this book did a very good job of showing how Cole is trying his best to get away from the bad things that are now in his life. He is in high school and many people are now bullying him and his new friend Peter. It is a very good sequel and you should only read this book if you have read the first one. It is somet This book is about a boy named Cole who has just gotten back from being isolated on an Alaskin penninsula. It is sometimes hard to follow if you have not read Touching Spirit Bear.

When Cole and Peter are on the island they become friends and can do many things to get away from reality. When they are back in their hometown they discover many great things that are in their lives they didn't see before.

One thing that the author could've done better was to give more voice to the other characters. He did good on Cole and Peter, but you really couldn't relate to the others in a positive way.

Ghost of Spirit Bear

I would recommend this book to plenty of people that are interested in hearing about someone that changed their life, then going back to their normal routine and see how they are treated. The title is almost perfect for this book because the bear lived on an island near Alaska.

Cole changed dramatically because when he went to the island it changed his whole personality. A portion of why Matthew changed was because he joined the circle and started to hang out with Cole.

The plot was perfect for I would recommend this book to plenty of people that are interested in hearing about someone that changed their life, then going back to their normal routine and see how they are treated. The plot was perfect for coming back to school because he could show his peers how much he had changed on the island of Alaska.

Dec 13, LuAnn rated it it was ok Shelves: I thought Touching Spirit Bear was a great book and I recommend it all the time, so naturally I was excited to see a sequel and couldn't wait to read it. I was totally disappointed. This book was diadatic, judgemental, and telly. Where was the richness of the previous book? Ghost of Spirit Bear reads more like an outline instead of a story. Too predictable and not well-developed, I'm glad I read this one from the library instead of buying my own copy.

Sep 18, Dylan Lafollette rated it really liked it. So far the book goes on at the island and Cole must tare down his cabin to keep his memories of burning and building a cabin. They Cole and Peter thought they will never see the spirit bear but they are waiting for a big suprise.

As problems at his school worsen, Cole realizes that it is not enough to change himself, he has to change his world. What I like about this book is that it is a story of survival and self-control, where young people realizes how high levels of violence can reach. The part that I like the most is where Cole, realizes that no matter how much he changes, if he continues with the bad company, it is not to change anything.

What I didn't like about this book is that children are very cruel, and they don't care about feelings, or what other children think. But this helps us to understand what we actually live in schools. I think, children in schools would like this book, because they can see and understand that violence leads to nothing good.

If you have read Touching Spirit Bear, then you'll know that this book is the best sequel this book could've had possible.

It not only gives us a recap on the emotional change that Cole went through, but also let's us fully understand that he is not completely healed.

He just handles it better. He fully thinks through his actions more and in doing that he changes so much for the people around him and it's just a perfect way to really give us closure and really wrap up this story. I would absolut If you have read Touching Spirit Bear, then you'll know that this book is the best sequel this book could've had possible. I would absolutely say you should read it but only if you read the first one. Apr 24, Kyle rated it really liked it.

Cole Mathews was a troubled child but after spending a year in the Alaskan wilderness he has change and now is friends with the kid he beat up that made him go to Alaska. Oct 25, Jonathan added it Shelves: I loved the part when Peter and Cole became friends. Also that they stood up for each other when they were in trouble with some bullies. I cant believe that they had good spirits. The part that I didn't get was the part when Cole's dad was there in the assembly when he did not want to see Cole.

Also, what happened to the old homeless man? The book said that he disappeared. Mar 15, Layla Eckstrom rated it it was amazing. I loved it like the first one. Oct 07, Julia rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a really beautiful read.

One thing Mikaelsen does so perfectly is create the feeling of helplessness in a high school setting. Admittedly I find that there are a lot fewer "bullies" in today's high schools and most teens are primarily faced with their own inner demons, but I was pleasantly surprised with the way that Cole eventually learned how to face them.

When Garvey kept telling Cole that the way he way dealing with Keith was wrong, I felt as helpless as Cole did trying to figure out This was a really beautiful read. When Garvey kept telling Cole that the way he way dealing with Keith was wrong, I felt as helpless as Cole did trying to figure out exactly what Garvey meant.

Mikaelsen really makes you as the reader feel like you yourself are the protagonist of the story, and it is not often that a book nowadays can create that level of empathy. As the tension builds, the story presents many shocking aspects, not allowing you to even breathe as you read from one trauma to the next. I also enjoyed the literal connections to the first book as Cole and Peter tried to regain the peace they had found on the island back in the real world.

The homeless man was a meaningful connection too; just like the Spirit Bear, only Cole and Peter would ever know for sure or as sure as they can be that he exists. He reminded me very much of David Almond's Skellig , and I love the mystery of never knowing for sure who he was or why he came into their lives. We have to allow ourselves to see what there is to see, and we have to imagine. I think it is meant to be that way.

Just as Cole thought he would be miserable on the island--and he was, for most of it--the reader really has to feel the story to get it. The reader has to want to get something out of it, or he never will. The book creates much the same experience for the reader as it does for the protagonist.

So for anyone who thought that Cole's idea to make the school a better place was stupid and I will admit that I didn't understand it at first , the key is to allow yourself to think that it is meaningful.

It doesn't matter if it is or not. You have to choose to make it meaningful for yourself. Finally, I don't think I can end this review without commenting about Ms.

At first, I felt like hating her, because I thought Cole wanted to hate her, but I loved her transition through the novel. I wish I had known a single good principal or teacher like her. I found her character surprisingly believable if that oxymoron makes any sense!

The suicides were less than a year apart. While the principal addressed it in assembly and the teachers and students cried their tears, our school never went through this sort of healing.

I think most people just forgot about it and moved on. The school continued enforcing anti-bullying policies and trying to reduce the hate, but no one ever spoke up for us to make a big move towards something positive.

In my eyes, they just tried to move away from negativity. The correct choice would have been to move towards something positive. Just because these phrases are opposites do not mean that they simply represent reverse behaviours. Kennedy was a refreshing change. This is the perfect follow-up to Touching Spirit Bear, and it shows the ability to heal without the harsh and cringe-worthy events of the island Cole's diet at the beginning, being one obvious example.

One final note: Ghost of Spirit Bear is infinitely better than Harry Potter and the Cursed Child , but it was a very surprising inter-textual connection. Somehow now I feel like Cursed Child completely ripped off Mikaelsen's beautiful story. View all 9 comments. May 25, Joseph rated it really liked it. I loved it, but it just wasn't the same as the first one, first of all it wasn't as big of a change for Cole and Peter and is not at the top at my rereading list, but there were some good parts, for example when they fight the bully with their heart that was interesting and a little weird, but the story ends nice, unlike some books.

Dec 20, Marie rated it it was amazing. Ghost of Spirit Bear. New York: Harper Collins. The cover of the book is wonderful. It features a mighty bear rising above a building, mouth wide, open fangs visible. I was interested in finding out how Cole Matthews and Peter Driscal were doing since their last experience, which was a healing journey for themselves.

Cole had smashed Peters' head against the sidewalk causing serious damage to Peter. The incident wounded Peter to his core.

Peter became suicidal after being brutalized; he had lost his place in the world. Healing was a challenge for both boys. Peter and Cole survived the island together. It was time for the boys to go home to where reality and reliance on themselves would be put to the test. Cole, with an rage just below the surface, and Peter, with a limp and a speech problem, make them targets in high school. Could Cole and Peter survive the city filled with gangs, bullies and violence?

Ghost of Spirit Bear is about the struggles the boys face in a urban setting that is turbulent and violent. Somehow they must find a way to survive without doing harm. Cole and Peter are challenged by the real fact that their internal self-change was not going to be enough when back in the city. Peter and Cole have Garvey their counselor, to support them and he offers advice. The boys would need each other.

They would need to use their brains and new skills to change the world they live in; meanwhile, a entity in the form of an elusive old street man the Ghost of Spirit Bear is watching them. Specific quotes from the text "Cole spoke bitterly. Let them beat me up! Cole comments " I looked down for just a few seconds, and when I looked back he was gone.

I questioned Cole's inability to follow through with his line of questioning when it came to the spirit bears essence he saw in the old bum's eyes.
