Thank you to Debbie Zelasny for putting BRAVE-ish in The Jersey Momma Gift Guide and to Melissa Curtin for including BRAVE-ish in her LaLaScoop Gift Guide! Read some of my reviews here



Lisa Niver makes the extraordinary relatable. Her voice is that of a friend you haven’t spoken with for ages. She’s made the bad choices and ignored the signs that so many of us do – you know, the ones that, in hindsight, were so strong that they might as well have been flashing neon signs – and come out stronger with an inspiring story to tell. Niver’s book inspires more than emotional strength and perseverance; as a travelogue should, it filled me with more wanderlust and a new list of places to put on my travel bucket list. I’ve been through bad relationships and ignored the flashing neon signs myself. I also started dipping my toes into the travel writing waters in my 40s, so I found Niver’s story extra encouraging. by MELISSA PETERSON
