Told from the point of view of a six-year-old child, this is the story of Anna and her little brother, Stick, two young children forced to fend for themselves in Algonquin Park after a black bear attacks their parents. A gripping and mesmerizing exploration of the child psyche, this is a survival story unlike any other, and one that asks what it takes to survive in the wilderness and what happens when predation comes from within.

Narrator brought the story alive.

Not my favorite book. The child's voice, while an interesting perspective on the story got old after awhile. There was repetition and because of the way the child's thoughts were portrayed it was sometimes hard to understand what she was seeing or experiencing.

It is an interesting way to tell the story and the childlike narration and thought was well done.
