Say is a boy who is wounded in the Civil War. Pink helps Say by taking him where he lives. Pink wants to go back to war to make sure his mom does not get hurt. Say does not want to go back because he does not want to get hurt. Say does not think he can go back to war. Will Pink and Say go back in war?

I like this book because itís about the Civil War. I was surprised by how young the characters were because they were in a war. I thought the characters were smart and strong.

I recommend this book because itís a book told during the Civil War. I recommend this book to 3rd and 4th grade, so they can learn about the Civil War. Itís a story about facing your fears.
