    When the Civil War broke, Blake Bradford’s dad volunteered to go to war, but he was killed by a young Union soldier. Blake, grieving, decided to avenge his father by going to war himself and killing that Union soldier. Lying about his age, he joined the army to be their drummer and started his quest to find the youth who took his father away from him. What Blake didn’t expect was the humanity and kindness of the soldiers who were in the war. When Blake finds this soldier, will he still be able to kill him in Blake’s Story, Revenge and Forgiveness by J. Arthur Moore.

    Blake’s Story is a wonderful tale of compassion and sympathy in a time when kindness is a costly commodity because they are at war. The scene where Blake and his dad’s killer figured out each other’s identity was the best scene in the whole book. The characters, especially Blake and the soldiers he made friends with in the Union army, are nice and likable people. They were portrayed and described well and were convincing. From the beginning, I wondered how Blake was going to find the young soldier who killed his father and what he was going to do once he found out. The conclusion of the story was not what I expected, but it was even better and I liked it very much. Viewing the war from a child’s perspective, a member of the army no less, gave me a new understanding of what really went on during the Civil War.
