As Brave As You

As Brave As You

by Jason Reynolds

As Brave as You is full of questions. Brothers Ernie and Genie travel to Virginia from Brooklyn to spend a month with their grandparents. 11-year-old Ernie has a lot of questions like, how does a house catch a tree? How do you catch topsy-turvy? How many stars are there in the sky? Over the month (with no internet!) the boys get to know their grandparents and rural southern living a whole lot better. Ernie also learns a lot about secrets, keeping his own as well as his blind grandfather’s. Will there be answers to all of the questions? No. But that’s where the bravery comes in.
