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.
