From W. Bruce Cameron, the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog's Purpose , which is now a major motion picture!

After 13-year-old Charlie Hall's mother dies and his father retreats into the silence of grief, Charlie finds himself drifting lost and alone through the brutal halls of junior high school.

But Charlie Hall is not entirely friendless. In the woods behind his house, Charlie is saved from a mountain lion by a grizzly bear, thought to be extinct in northern Idaho.

And this very unusual bear will change Charlie's life forever.

Deeply moving, and interwoven with hope and joy, Emory's Gift is not only heartwarming and charming coming of age story, but also a page-turning insightful look at how faith, trust, and unconditional love can heal a broken family and bridge the gaps that divide us.

Seems like the target audience is more middle schoolers rather than adults.

This book explores the possibility of reincarnation. It is a very good book about a young boy and his bear.

I have read his 2 dog novels, and bawled like a baby! (that's good for you, right?)
This was a nice change, excellent writing, and I literally laughed out loud, in public, at the bison/bookkeeper part of the story. I enjoy his writing style.

I quite enjoyed this read, although I must admit I did prefer his 2 dog novels.

Mr. Cameron should stick to dog stories.

What a delightful romp, read most of it during a 5 hour car service wait trying to contain my laughter.
Suitable for any age, something like Shrek, multi layered.
