As Brave as You is a great book by author Jason Reynolds.
When two brothers decided to prove how brave they were.
Genie’s summer is full of surprises. The first is that he and his big brother, Ernie, are leaving Brooklyn for the first time to spend the summer with their grandparents all the way in Virginia – in the COUNTRY! The second surprise comes when Genie discovers that their grandfather is blind. Thunderstruck, and being a curious kid, Genie questions how he covers it so well (aside from wearing Ray-Bans cool). How does he match his clothes? Know where to walk? Cooking with gas stove? Pour a glass of sweet tea without spilling it?
Genie thinks Grandpop must be the bravest guy he’s ever known, but he’s starting to notice that his grandfather never leaves the house – like in NEVER. And when he finds the secret room where Grandpop always disappears – a room so full of songbirds and plants that it’s almost pulled from the inside out. He began to wonder if his grandfather was really that brave after all.
Then Ernie let him down in the brave department. It’s his 14th birthday, and Grandpop says that to be a man, you have to learn how to shoot a gun. Genie thought it was GREAT until he realized Ernie had no interest in learning how to shoot. Not available. The remaining Genie wonders, is bravery and being a man just to prove something, or is it important to master what you wouldn’t?
