I read Ramona The Brave by Beverly Cleary. The main character is Ramona. The setting is in her neighborhood. In the beginning Ramona thinks that she did a brave thing but she did not. In the middle Ramona gets a new bedroom, but she thinks that there is something in the closet, the curtains, or the wall, she was scared. At the end, read to find out if Ramona finds her fear and faces it! The author's message is face your fear.
My favorite part is when the dog eats Ramona's shoe. I would recommend this book for anyone who likes to be brave.
