There Will Be Bears

author: Ryan Gebhart

Thirteen-year-old Tyson loves hanging out with his roughneck grandfather, Gene, who’s a lot more fun than Tyson’s former best friend, Brighton. So when Grandpa Gene prepares to move to a nursing home that can manage his kidney disease, Tyson feels like he’s losing his only friend. Not only that, but Tyson was counting on Grandpa Gene to take him on his first big hunt. So in defiance of Mom and Dad’s strict orders, and despite reports of a scary, stalking, man-eating grizzly, the two sneak off to the Grand Tetons. There will be action, there will be heart-pounding suspense, and, oh yes, there will be bears. . . .

“Debut novelist Gebhart reveals an uncanny knack for getting inside the brain of a teenage boy wrestling with changing relationships and an onslaught of disappointments.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
