  1. Jamie: 9 months ago

    I’ve been waiting for months to read bear facts since February 2023 & it supposedly keeps being pushed back. The latest is it says summer 2023 but I cannot find it on line anywhere!!!

    I have bought the whole UNBOUND series on paperback

    I don’t have kindle, I like to read books not on line.

    If ANYONE can tell me where the #15 UNBOUND book “BEAR FACT” can be found I would VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT
