    Drawing from the rich store of Civil War reminiscences handed down in her family, acclaimed author Patricia Polacco tells the true story of a remarkable wartime friendship between a young white Union soldier, Say Curtis, and a young black Union soldier, Pinkus Aylee. They are captured by Confederate soldiers and sent to Andersonville Prison.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This true story is beautifully told.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pink and Say?

    It made the Civil War more personal for my students.


    What does Melba Sibrel and Hal Hollings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I only gave the reading 4 stars because I thought Hollings could have varied his voice more for the different characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The story was quite moving, even for my "tough" fifth-graders who usually don't want to share a lot of vulnerable feelings.
