Sheila Rae, the Brave
by Kevin Henkes

What It's About
Being courageous is important to Sheila Rae, and she's always testing herself on real and imagined terrors. But one day when she gets lost going home a new way, it's her timid little sister, Louise (who was sneakily following Sheila Rae home) who saves the day and leads them both to safety.
