Not a set, but highly recommend "Dry" by Neal Shusterman. I also second "Touching Spirit Bear". EXCELLENT book!

Hi Nancy and all,
I really loved the book, "Touching Spirit Bear" by Ben Mikaelsen. It's not new book as it was published in 2001 but it is wonderful. I think all teens and adults should read it. If you're not familiar with it the summary is:
After his anger erupts into violence, Cole, in order to avoid going to prison, agrees to participate in a sentencing alternative based on the native American Circle Justice, and is sent to a remote Alaskan island where an encounter with a huge Spirit Bear changes his life. This gripping, graphic survival story from an award-winning writer paints an unsparing picture of one violent teen and offers a poignant testimony to the power of pain that can destroy and may also heal.
