In award-winning author Ben Mikaelsen's riveting sequel to the acclaimed word-of-mouth bestseller Touching Spirit Bear, readers will be captivated by what Booklist calls a "hugely satisfying resolution."

Life in the wilderness--exiled from civilization as a punishment for his violent behavior--had its own set of hurdles, but for fifteen-year-old Cole Matthews, it's returning home and facing high school that he's not sure he can handle.

With gangs and physical altercations haunting the hallways of their school, Cole and his former victim Peter--who Cole has now become friends with--must face it all together.

So when Peter's limp and speech impediment make him a natural target to the bullies, Cole's suppressed rage comes bubbling to the surface a lot quicker than he anticipated. Will he throw everything away that he learned on the healing, remote Alaskan island?

In this tale of teenage survival and self-awareness, Cole realizes it's not enough to change himself. He has to change his world.
