Brave Like My Brother

Brave Like My Brother

by Marc Tyler Nobleman

When Charlie’s brother, Joe, is called up to fight in World War II, he promises to write Charlie lots and lots of letters. It won’t make up for not being there to help Charlie out with the neighborhood bullies, but it’s all Joe can do.

Life is tough for a soldier, and Joe tells Charlie all about it, from training in endless rain and mud to the stray dog the soldiers adopt. When Joe is sent on a secret mission with the one soldier he can’t stand, Matt, he will have to face risks that place their mission — and their lives — in grave danger.

Charlie knew his brother was strong, but through Joe’s letters he learns what Joe really is: a true hero. Joe’s letters give Charlie the strength to stand up for himself and be brave, just like his brother.
