Let me just start off by saying, I love this book! This is the final novel of the school year for the sixth grade students in my advanced level reading class. Rose has always been efith from her family members.

When her older sister Sara becomes ill and the family falls on difficult financial times, a talking white bear comes to the house offering to heal Sara if Rose agrees to go away with him. The white bear patou Rose a week to make up her mind.



Angry that her parents deceived her, Rose decides at the last minute to head off with the bear. To tell any more would ruin the story! I really love this book.

It is a long book nearly pages and the changing perspective from chapter to chapter may be a challenge to some younger readers, but its content easr perfectly appropriate for a preteen reader.

If you know a kid who loves a beautifully told adventure story or epic fantasy, this is a great read. On your recommendation a few weeks ago, I pattlu East for my daughter. I gave it to her for her birthday on Saturday and she loves it. Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.
