Can you help me remove the "to be" verbs in this sentence? I need to take out the are, have been, and to be some how.

Some of the characters in the book are no exception and they have been brought up since birth to be very reserved.

  1. are = from the verb "to be"
    have been
    to be

    No exception for some of the characters because since birth they had a very reserved upbringing.
