Description

While volunteering at the local zoo, Robyn, Nick and Trevor learn that grizzly bears are being poached and their gall bladders removed for use in alternative medicine. Always ready to solve a mystery, the kids set out to find the poachers. Bear is not only big game, they learn, but big money to poachers. The stakes are high and the suspects many, as the kids head into their most dangerous adventure yet.

Editorial Reviews

"A really catchy read. Sure, there's the suspense element, but just reading the nuts and bolts about how her characters talk is oddly fascinating…The joy of Bear Market is just how forthright and sincere a read it is. The book captures the tween/teen energies of today's kids in a way I haven't read before."

— CD Syndicated

"A combination of twists and turns, with an encounter with a bear and a conservation theme, makes this a good addition to a fiction collection."

— Tacoma School District #10

"A fast-paced story filled with interesting facts about bears, poaching, and animal rights activism…The camaraderie established among the three friends in this story is appealing, and the humourous quips between them are some of the best dialogue in the book…A solid addition to the "Orca Currents" library and is an appealing choice for mystery fans. Recommended."
