Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Some people won’t believe any of this story. You might be one of them. But every single word is true. Tony DiMarco does catch a murderer, solve a mystery, and find a treasure—all in the first few days after he moves, unexpectedly, to 13 Hangmen’s Court in Boston. The fact that he also turns thirteen at the same time is not a coincidence.”

So begins the story of Tony and his friends—five 13-year-old boys, all of whom are living in the same house in the same attic bedroom but at different times in history! None are ghosts, all are flesh and blood, and somehow all have come together in the attic room, visible only to one another. And all are somehow linked to a murder, a mystery, and a treasure.

Praise for 13 Hangmen
"Fascinating tale. Ghostly fun in old Boston."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The book’s design nicely differentiates Tony’s story, set in 2009, from the past narratives. Recommend this engaging historical mystery to readers who devoured Dan Gutman’s Baseball Card Adventures series and are ready for a longer, more complex adventure."

--Booklist

"Corriveau merrily ransacks historical episodes and figures (e.g., the Great Molasses Flood, the Underground Railroad, Boston mayor John F. “Honey Fitz” Fitzgerald) and spins, twists, and manipulates their stories to advance the DiMarco family mystery. The result is a novel that agilely balances humor and tension."

--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This is an exceptionally good story, with a wry, humorous tone that has particular boy appeal. It covers baseball, history, sibling rivalry, girls, and mystery, and folds in the space-time continuum."

--School Library Journal

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:

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.
