There are no polar bears left on Bear Island. At least, that’s what April’s father tells her when his scientific research takes them to this remote Arctic outpost for six months. But one endless summer night, April meets one. He is starving, lonely and a long way from home. Determined to save him, April begins the most important journey of her life…

It was a really good book and loved it. It’s one of those books we’re you get stuck in and forget about what’s going on around you ( being like in your own world)it is about this girl who hand to move to bear island and met the last bear on there. She made friends with the bear and I feel very relatable to her too.

I loved it. I couldn’t put it down. I love how April found a connection and a love for the bear - and the bear for her too.

Hannah gold is a very inspiring author as it tells us a story which is fiction but it has sprinkles of non fiction too. I loved this book because it tells us what climate change is doing to the ice caps and how fast they are melting. It is so sad to read a book and hear about how fast the ice caps are melting and that Polar bears are being the victims of our selfishness. I would definitely recommend this to people that are into stories that have a connection with wildlife and that a small thing can make a big difference especially if you help had more than one person making a difference.

One of my favourite books. Since reading it my dad and sister have also read and enjoyed. April is a girl who has lost her mum. She lives with her dad who is a scientist. They go to live on Bear Island and the story unfolds. It's very heart warming and I'm looking forward to reading the second book.

It makes me want to cry when the sad bits come. My favourite person was April because she has such a great connection with animals. I would recommend it to animal lovers and people who like family and adventure stories
