Shadow of the Bear by Regina Doman
In New York City, a young, secretive street tough who calls himself Bear lands on the doorstep of two teenaged sisters in the middle of a January snowstorm. On the one hand Rose is delighted with his surprising knowledge of literature, poetry, and music; on the other hand Blanche is afraid of his apparent connections to drugs, murder, and a hidden treasure. Even as Blanche learns to trust him, her fears that Bear's friendship threatens their family prove terrifyingly true.
The Shadow of the Bear is a modern retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale.
