Louise has a problem with her older sister, Sheila Rae. It's not that her sister ignores her or picks on her or teases her, it's that her sister is brave -- too brave. Sheila Rae claims she isn't afraid of anything and that causes her to take what seem like foolish risks to Louise.
Sheila Rae fights with the big, black dog at the end of the block. She bares her teeth to strange cats and growls at strange dogs. She rides her bike no-handed and with her eyes closed. She even does handstands on her bike in front of everyone. Sheila Rae, as she says and everyone else knows, is brave.
One day, Sheila Rae decides to walk home from school a new way and gets lost. She sits down and cries and thinks that she doesn't feel very brave today. Until Louise finds her and helps her find her way.
