Publisher Comments:

The Year: 1773. The place: Boston. Johnny Tremain is fourteen and apprenticed to a silversmith. He is gifted and lords his skills over the other apprentices, until one day his hand is horribly burned by molten silver. Johnnyand#8217;s dreams of silversmithing are over. A depressed Johnny finds work as a dispatch rider for the Committee of Public Safety, a job that brings him in touch with Boston patriotsand#8212;and the excitement that will lead to the Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington. This paperback edition of the 1944 Newbery Medal-winning novel includes an introduction by Newbery Honor author Gary D. Schmidt.

Synopsis:

The great events of Revolutionary Boston as seen through the shrewd eyes of an observant fourteen-year-old boy.

Synopsis:

On July 4th, 1777, Jake Mallery and his friends are celebrating their new nation's independence in a small coastal town in Connecticut. Fourteen-year-old Jake wants nothing more than to get out from under the strict thumb of his father and have some adventure. But he learns too late that he must be careful what he wishes for. Over the course of four more 4ths, he finds himself in increasingly adventurous circumstances--from battling the British army to barely surviving on a prison ship to finally returning home, war-torn and weary, but hopeful for his and America's future.

Synopsis:

Johnny Tremain, a young apprentice silversmith, is caught up in the danger and excitement of 1775 Boston, just before the Revolutionary War. But even more gripping than living through the drama of Revolutionary Boston is the important discovery Johnny makes in his own life.

This book has many interesting facts but also takes you on a thrill ride. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and is great for literature circles.
