Bravey (Young Readers)

Chasing Dreams, Befriending Pain, and Other Big Ideas

What is a bravey? For Alexi Pappas — Olympic runner, actress, filmmaker, and more — it means to chase the goals that seem scary. She has not shied away from the challenge. In this honest and hopeful memoir, adapted from her adult memoir to be perfect for young readers, Alexi details key moments that had profound effects on her life, including the loss of her mother when she was just four years old, to her formative years at school where she felt different from her peers, and into her young adult life, including the incredible year she experienced in 2016 when she made her Olympic debut as a distance runner and wrote, directed, and starred in her first feature film.

Through it all, Alexi worked hard — physically, mentally, and emotionally, but not without setbacks and difficulties, all of which helped her learn about confidence and self-reliance, compassion and forgiveness, loss and hope. Even with good things happening, Alexi found herself facing anxiety and mental health issues. How does one make life better when it already seems good? Alexi doesn't provide all the answers, but she offers ideas to consider when life gets complicated.

Young readers will be inspired by Alexi's journey to create an abundant life filled with loving friends and family and strong female role models and mentors — who helped to shape the bravey she is today.
