520    "When Alexi Pappas was four years old, her mother 
       committed suicide, drastically altering the course of 
       Pappas's life and setting her on a perpetual search for 
       female role models. When her father started signing her up
       for sports teams as a way to keep his bereaved daughter 
       busy, female athletes became some of the first women 
       Pappas looked up to, and she became a girl with a goal: to
       be an Olympian. Despite setbacks and hardships, Pappas 
       held fast to that dream, putting in the tremendous hard 
       work, both mentally and physically, and letting nothing 
       stand in her way until she achieved it, making her Olympic
       debut as a runner in 2016. Unflinching, often exuberant, 
       and always entertaining, Bravey showcases Pappas's 
       signature, charming voice as she reflects upon the 
       touchstone moments in her life and the lessons that have 
       powered her career as both an athlete and artist--chief 
       among them, how to be brave. She faces obstacles with 
       optimism and finds the dark moments as important to her 
       process as the breakthroughs, from high school awkwardness
       to post-Olympic depression, offering valuable wisdom on 
       the benefits of embracing what hurts, both physical and 
       emotional. To Pappas, bravery is inward-facing; it's all 
       in how you feel about yourself, as much about always 
       believing in yourself as it is about running toward your 
       goals. Pappas's experiences reveal how anyone can overcome
       hardship, befriend pain, celebrate victory, relish the 
       loyalty found in teammates, and claim joy. In short: how 
       anyone can be a bravey"--|cProvided by publisher.
