Can you reimagine an alternative name for this book?

If you were the author, what would you call this book? Do you agree that strong heart is a name that 100% reflects the content of the book?

I think the title fits the book a great deal. It could also be named after Sarah since she seemed to be the focal point of the story.

The name is befitting. But we can also call it "Brave Heart", I guess.

Very nice! Your comment inspired me to the name "Brave spirit"

I think the author pretty much had the title of the book locked down. I can't see any other interesting title.

I agree with the others that the title fits the book.

New names:"The survival", "Surviving a trip into the Twilight Zone".

@Does Wael I really like brave spirit since it goes in and out of the spirit world.

Yay Gali on my post! I like the idea of including the survival aspect in the name

It could have been named "Sarah's Journey" or "The Journey", but I think its current title is much better than those. :)

Brave Heart sounds like a great name!

I agree with most everyone else. I think the name the book has is pretty good by itself.

I think Strong Heart works well for this story. I cannot imagine a better name.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

Adventures of Sarah would have been too general right :P
I cannot think of a more apt title for this book.
