This book is superb this is better than any other book I have ever read. It is about a kid named sonny that loves to box he want to find his mother in the big city, once he is there he finds two hustlers that take his wallet then a undercover cop try's to get one but sonny nails him with a hook. So the hustlers get him a place to live then Sonny somehow winds up in the middle of a big crack war in New York City that is driving him crazy and all he wants to do is try to see his mother. IF U DONT READ IT YOU WOULD REGET IT.

The Book You Will Remeber for a lifetime November 09,2001

This book is awesome! I am the kind of person who hates to read. I usually stop reading books whenever I can, but I couldn't put this book down. I am almost tempted to go check out the book and read it again just for the heck of it. The title is not very catchy THE BRAVE. I mean come on who wants to read a book with that kind of a title, but dont let that discourage you. This book is about a boxer named Sonny Bear who lives on a reservation near Sparta. Sonny somehow winds up in the middle of a big crack war in New York City. Then Sonny meets Brooks and Spoon which are his key to the heavyweight title. So if you want to see if Sonny becomes the heavyweight champ you will have to go read the book for yourself.

A Great Sequel to The Contender

Sonny Bear is a 17-year-old boxer who boxes in "smoke houses". A smoke house is a house where people bet on boxers that are "professional." His uncle, Jake, is a moscondaha Indian just like Sonny. As Sonny boxes, a farmer boy with blond hair is the first one to beat him. He the hitch-hikes to the The Deuce in New York to see his mother. When he gets there, he is met by an escaped convict from prison named stick and a 17-year-old hottie named Doll. While they are walking up and down The Deuce, an octet of cops attack Sonny and Stick then grabs his wallet and runs off with it. While Sonny is in jail, he is confronted by Sergeant Brooks, a former Harlem boxer that decided to be a cop. While Brooks is asking him questions, he finds out that Sonnt is a boxer and decides to train him to be #1 champion he possibly could be. Brooks tells him about Donatelli's Gym and the story about when he was boxing. Next, he starts training to win the Golden Gloves Award. AS he proceeds in the tournament, he is next to face Brooks' arch rival's son

Takes place right where the Contender left off.

Having read the Contender in reading class, I still had many questions at the end. Once I found the sequel,The Brave, I couldn't put it down. I would stay up late reading until I couldn't read any more. This book got me reading a lot more. Now I can't wait to read The Chief. I recommend this book to everyone. This would be a great book to read in class. It is The Contender, only better. If you read The Contender you must read this book. If you like The Contender and The Brave read The Outsiders and Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton. I guarantee you will like them too.

Too real to be written.

I couldn't put the book down. The Brave is so much like today it is today. I reccomend this to all young adults.
