Overview

A boy learns to manage his fears of social situations and criticism. He uses the acronym BRAVE, which stands for "be ready and victory's easy," to plan ahead for difficult situations.

Danny, a fifth grader, is bombarded with real and imagined problems. As if school itself wasn't stressful enough, a long speech is required, which feels impossible to him. The only way to get out of giving the speech is to win the science contest. When he's paired with Jack, the goof-off kid in class, he's doomed. Bus stop terrors, lunchtime woes, and dealing with his mean older brother add to his stress. Then disaster strikes! His usual coping strategies are no longer working. What will he do?
