Review: The Summer of the Bear

The Summer of the Bear The Summer of the Bear by Bella Pollen
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Had it been 100 pages shorter, it'd have been a real engaging read; as it is, superfluous characters and irrelevant incidents mar the flow and make the book such a drag that finally I just wanted it to end. The younger daughter's rebellion was also a bit difficult to understand. What did she have a grudge against?
