Bearwalker by Joseph Bruchac

I don’t like scary books, but I made the sacrifice of a good reading bowl sponsor and read Bearwalker by Joseph Bruchac.  It was not as scary as I had anticipated and was action-packed!  The story has some great insights into the heart of a bully.  Baron, the main character of the story, has been picked on by most of the students at his school until they all go on a trip to Camp Chuckamuck together.  The students are already afraid of being attacked by bears, but when the camp counselors act shady Baron is forced to be brave.  This would be a wonderful book for students in grades 4-7 who like thrillers.
