Summary:

A story filled with danger and excitement, Johnny Tremain tells of the turbulent, passionate times in Boston just before the Revolutionary War.

Johnny, a young apprentice silversmith, is caught with Otis, Hancock, and John and Samuel Adams in the exciting operations and subterfuges leading up to the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington. As Johnny is forced into the role of a full-grown man in the face of his new country's independence, he finds that his relations with those he loves changes for the better as well.

Johnny Tremain is historical fiction at its best, portraying the living drama of Revolutionary Boston through the shrewd eyes of an observant boy.

    This was an unexpectedly delightful book in many ways. Full of history. Did you know that Paul Revere was a silver smith? I kept expecting Benjamin Franklin to show up, but he never did. I know he was in France before the war. That must be when this story takes place. Those who enjoy this story might also like "FEVER 1773" by Laurie Halsey Andersen. (The date may be wrong.) She is also the author of "SPEAK," which I know is on Audio tape.
