Is Robin brave enough to do what’s right when everyone thinks she’s wrong?

No one is more passionate about rescuing hurt animals than Robin, except maybe her best friend Zo-Zo, who helps Robin run the family’s animal shelter, The Wild Place. When the two of them discover that a neighbour’s chicken farm is really a factory farm, they both want to stop it. Zo-Zo argues that radical action is required, but Robin is worried about getting into trouble with her dad, or even worse, the local sheriff.
Is it ever okay to break the law to stand up for what you believe in? And if it is, how will she find the courage to do what’s right, even when others think she’s wrong?

Karen Hood-Caddy is an avid environmentalist and the author of five novels. Her last, Howl, a middle grade book, was nominated for the Canadian Library Association's Book of the Year for Children Award and the Violet Downey Book Award. When not writing, Karen works virtually as a personal development coach. She lives in an isolated cabin on Georgian Bay, Ontario.

Although The Truth about Brave is a novel full of troubled children, Hood-Caddy does a good job resolving these serious issues in a realistic way. - Canadian Materials
