This book was amazing! Emotional on many different levels. Appealing to young adults and adults alike. You must read!

this is the best book I've read and I'm not a big reader. I loved it!

This novel was great escape, it really helped me look at the big picture!

This book was amazing, I read it in my Grade 7 class for library and it was the the best book. Other than End Of Days by Eric Walters, but I would really recommend a read here because the story is very inspirational (in ways). This was an Epic Novel!

'Touching Spirit Bear' is incredible. It made me really reflect on my life and THINK. In my opinion, everyone should read this fantastic novel.
