This book called “Touching Spirit Bear” is about juvenile delinquent Cole Matthews who mad a bad choice and ended up on an island for his punishment. Cole robbed a band and bragged about it at school. Someone ratted on him and Cole beat the kid, smashed him on a sidewalk and spit on him. He got sent to the island then and learned how to control his anger. One thing I liked about this story is that cole and the boy he beat up become friends. One thing I don’t like is that the only reason he made a bad choice was because of his father. His father beat him with a belt everyday. Cole just couldn’t take it anymore and just robbed the bank.
