Emory's Gift by W Bruce Cameron
Published Date: 2011
Publisher: Forge Books
The Story: After 13 year old Charlie Hall's mom dies and his dad retreats into the silence of grief, Charlie finds himself lost and adrift in the junior high. But he's not entirely friendless, a bear named Emory becomrs friends with him.
My Review: I loved this book. It was so cute and sweet. Terrifying to in some ways. I cannot imagine making friends with a bear. But the strength that comes to Charlie and his dad over this experience is priceless.
In fact, I'm not the only one here at BCM that loved this book. Another of our bloggers recently reviewed this book as well with very similar thoughts. We both gave it a 5. You can read her review HERE.
