9780099581468: The Bear

Longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction (formerly the Orange)

Anna is five. Her little brother, Stick, is almost three. They are camping with their parents in Algonquin Park, in three thousand square miles of wilderness. It's the perfect family trip. But then Anna awakes in the night to the sound of something moving in the shadows. Her father is terrified. Her mother is screaming. Then, silence.

Alone in the woods, it is Anna who has to look after Stick, battling hunger and the elements to stay alive. Narrated by Anna, this is white-knuckle storytelling that captures the fear, wonder and bewilderment of our worst nightmares - and the power of one girl's enduring love for her family.

Bear

Review:

" Stylistically impressive and deeply moving" ( Glamour)

" A taut and touching story of how a child’s love and denial become survival skills" (Charlotte Rogan, author of The Lifeboat)

" This expertly crafted novel could do for camping what Jaws did for swimming.This agonizing odyssey of loss and being lost also has humor…The book’s anguished yet hopeful ending provides a touching terminus for Anna and Stick’s journey to adulthood" ( People)

" Read this book in one sitting...taut and engrossing look at an essential web of connected questions: How children think, how families work, how we relate to nature at its most brutal and how we process grief and trauma... Unforgettable." ( Globe and Mail)

"An emotional tour de force. Claire Cameron’s The Bear offers us an unforgettable child-narrator who propels us through a story as unsettling as it is bone-chilling, and as suspenseful as it is moving" (Megan Abbott, author of Dare Me and The End of Everything)
