Book Review: How to Be Brave by E. Katherine Kottaras


How to Be Brave

An emotional contemporary YA novel about love, loss, and having the courage to chase the life you truly want.

Reeling from her mother’s death, Georgia has a choice: become lost in her own pain, or enjoy life right now, while she still can. She decides to start really living for the first time and makes a list of fifteen ways to be brave – all the things she’s wanted to do but never had the courage to try. As she begins doing the things she’s always been afraid to do – including pursuing her secret crush, she discovers that life doesn’t always go according to plan. Sometimes friendships fall apart and love breaks your heart. But once in a while, the right person shows up just when you need them most – and you learn that you’re stronger and braver than you ever imagined.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for giving me the opportunity to read this book for free!

The feels about this book are ASDFGHJKL! I love how confident Georgia is. Despite her mother’s death, she still manage to continue her life even when it’s hard. I love the idea that she and her best friend started—a list of things to do. I love how Georgia gets energy from her mom. I mean, you can barely find someone who has this kind of love and brave(ness). The book was realistic that’s why I enjoyed it. I can relate to some parts of the book.

The book cover’s gorgeous.

The description’s c a t c h y.

The plot twists were amazing.

The characters were well developed.

And the writing style’s unique.

Over all, I really enjoyed the book. It was worth the time. I started this on October but finished it November. The story’s a little slow for me but the story went well for me so I was able to finish the book.
