After accidentally burning his hand, Johnny Tremain can no longer become the silversmith he’s always dreamed of being. When he finally settles on a place to work, he finds himself just inside the bubble of those planning rebellion in pre-Revolutionary Boston.
I first read Johnny Tremain when I was about twelve. I loved it then and I still love it today. The character development of Johnny is excellent. While he changes quite a bit over the course of the book, he doesn’t change so much as to be unbelievable. The descriptions of the goings on in Boston are exciting. I highly recommend reading it to anyone interested in or studying the time just prior to Lexington and Concord.
