Brave Enough tells the story of Cason and Davis. Cason is the youngest ballerina in the Atlanta Ballet Conservatory, and was hiding her injury while doing an audition. But after her audition, everything changed… Davis is a cancer survivor, but his drug addiction almost killed him. But his addiction is still taking its toll.

Brave Enough was such a beautiful book about friendship, love, cancer and addictions. I don’t always know whether I’m going to like or hate a book about cancer because my grandma died because of cancer. However, Brave Enough was such an inspiring book and I couldn’t stop reading!

I really wanted to read this book because I’ve always been fascinated by ballet, probably that fascinated because my parents didn’t let me do ballet because of my mum’s physical illnesses she got because of ballet. The doctors thought I was going to inherit them if I would start practising myself. I’ve always been sad about that because I think that ballet is so beautiful (but, of course, also hard work!). Too bad that this book wasn’t really about ballet that much but more about cancer.

The story itself was really good, I kept on reading because I wanted to know how it was going to end. To be honest, the end was a bit abrupt. I expected more chapters than the story had. The characters were also really enjoyable. I really liked Cason and Davis, they’re so cute together and they don’t want to give each other more pain.

I really liked Brave Enough and I cannot wait to discover more books written by Kati Gardner!
