If you expecting the same greatness as we got with, Cameron's, A Dogs Purpose --- reevealute your thoughts because this book isn't nearly as good.
Charlie is, a thirteen year old boy, who befriends a grizzly bear. The friendship with the bear essentially changes his relationship with his father and helps him overcome his mothers untimley death.
In, my opinion this book is too wordy and flows rather slowly. The character's are well developed and Cameron captures the relationship between a boy and his bear with love and wonder.
This coming of age book is okay enough but if I had to make a choice between this book and A Dogs Purpose --- A Dogs Purpose would always win.
