Let’s All Be Brave: A Book Review

Just this past fall, I had the opportunity to participate in my first Bloom book study.  Lucky for me, because we read Let’s All Be Brave by Annie F. Downs. Let me just say… LOVE LOVE LOVE!

First of all, with this movie having been rated PG, I thought that it's scariness would be limited to that of, you know, something more like Monsters, Inc. scary.  Boy was I wrong.  Twenty minutes into the movie, we had to turn it…
