Blue Fingers A Ninja's Tale By Cheryl Aylward Whitesel Book Review

I am so super excited! This is my Very First Bookablog book post. So, The book I reviewed was a historical Fiction book called...

       Blue Fingers
     A Ninja's Tale
    By Cheryl Aylward Whitesel 

The summary of the book (copyright The power and prowess of ninja never seem to lose their appeal to young readers, especially boys. Blue Fingers, a suspenseful, action-packed coming-of-age story set in feudal Japan, offers an up-close look at this noble, fierce way of life. Through an odd twist of fate, a stubborn twelve-year-old boy named Koji is kidnapped by a secret ninja clan and taken to its hidden camp high in the mountains. He wants desperately to return home, but that is forbidden. He must forget his old life and become a ninja-or die. In this carefully researched and well-crafted novel, Koji must learn to survive in the mysterious and dangerous world of the ninja and fulfill a destiny far different from any he could have imagined.

First Sentence
Koji peeked between the rain shutters of the thatched farmhouse and watched for his twin brother.

Almost every single book I read, I say "This was a awesome book!" But sometimes, I can realize that the book is just a normal story about something that is just repeated over and over again. I have to say, this story isn't like that. The book cover jacket grabs your attentiona nd never lets you go-as does the story. There's so much suspense, and so many qualities that are good about this book. It's wonderful how everything seems to be going right for Koji, but it felt like everything was going wrong. Cheryl Aylward Whiteselis a wonderful author, and I look forward to reading some of her other works.

Just to let everyone know, I have a different system of rating. Instead of giving it five stars, or a number of stars, I give it a animal rating. Of course I still add up the points, but I think with animals, its more fun to rate that way. So... the animal rating is-
rat=1 star 
fish=2 stars
hamster=3 stars
dog=4 stars
cat=5 stars

Plot-cat (5 stars)
Character development-cat (5 stars)
Ending-cat (five stars)
Suspense-cat (five stars)
Setting/description-cat (five stars)
