Bear, Otter, and the Kid survived last summer with their hearts and souls intact. They've moved into the Green Monstrosity, and Bear is finally able to admit his love for the man who saved him from himself.
But that's not the end of their story. How could it be?
The boys find that life doesn't stop just because they got their happily ever after. There's still the custody battle for the Kid. The return of Otter's parents. A first trip to a gay bar. The Kid goes to therapy, and Mrs. Paquinn decides that Bigfoot is real. Anna and Creed do... well, whatever it is Anna and Creed do. There are newfound jealousies, the return of old enemies, bad poetry, and misanthropic seagulls. And through it all, Bear struggles to understand his mother's abandonment of him and his brother, only to delve deeper into their shared past. What he finds there will alter their lives forever and help him realize what it'll take to become who they're supposed to be.
Family is not always defined by blood. It's defined by those who make us whole - those who make us who we are.

Interesting, Funny, Heart-Warming
The main character's, Bear, witty insight and inner dialogue.
There are a lot of things that happened in this book and so I would insist that if you read, Bear Otter and the Kid, you definitely need to read this one.
This was a much awaited sequel to the great Bear, Otter and the Kid. I'll admit at first I did not like that Sean Crisden wasn't the narrator. But Charlie David does a fantastic job. I just love everything about this book. I will be listening too it many times.
This is one of my favorite books, and Charlie David really brought it to life. He did such a fabulous job of narrating Bear and his somewhat insane thought process. The narration definitely added to my enjoyment.
The dinner party scene made me laugh out loud. The hospital scenes made me cry.
The dinner party, absolutely hysterical.
It made me do both.
I've bought and read quite a few audible books in the last few months, and this one was among the best I've listened to. I can honestly say that the narrator made it even better. Job well done.
Tell us about yourself! Why? What do you want to know
The candid honesty and humor of the characters. From the eccentric Ms. Paequin to the Kid's eco terrorist idioms to Bears flare for the dramatic thoughts. The book was Authentic and by faaaarrrrrr the best I have read to date!.
I can not even compare this to Book One. WWA has far exceeded my expectations and surpassed my appreciation for BOATK. This book has a individuality that is personified in each character. Definitely one of a kind!
No I don't think I have. But Charlie's interpretation of the characters and the situations they were placed in, I felt were spot on! He was awesome. But I also thought Sean Crisden did a fair job with Book 1.
Who We Are is just perfect.
Ofcourse, I feel I can't say enough about this book but I have to get back to work. Maybe later.
"Love the story and characters..."
Whilst I fell madly in love with the characters in the first book and they continue in the same way in this book I just wish that Sean Crisden had read it! Don't get me wrong, I love Charlie David (in all sorts of ways!) but when you've grown to know a set of characters by the voices it's a bit of a shock when they don't sound the same. TJ was supposed to have finished book 3 this past Wednesday (according to his Facebook page). Please, please, please get Sean to record it!
