There Will Be Bears

When Tyson’s best friend, Bright, decides he would rather hang out with the cool kids, Tyson knows that he still has his grandfather for companionship. They are planning an elk hunting trip together and Tyson is psyched. When his grandfather is sent to a nursing home and his parents cancel the big hunting trip, it is almost more than Tyson can handle. So in defiance of Mom and Dad’s strict orders, and despite reports of a scary, stalking, man-eating grizzly named Sandy, the two sneak off to the Grand Tetons. Will his grandfather be able to handle the trip? Will Tyson get his elk and be the talk of his middle school? Or will Sandy make a ferocious appearance and destroy everything?
