I enjoyed this book as a child, and still liked it when I re-read it as an adult. It is fast-paced, very readable, and feels like the story is foremost, rather than teaching period history.

This is a wonderful book. It follows two years in the life of a boy starting at age 14 who lives in Boston during Revolutionary times. There are lessons regarding pride and coming of age.The author does a great job expressing the vision of our founding fathers, looking beyond freedom for themselves. Character development is excellent. One of the best books I have ever read.

Most of my knowledge of this book is thanks to the Simpsons’ episode when Marge homeschools Bart and they read it together and I’ve always been vaguely curious. The Kindle edition comes with a terrific introduction, explaining that the book came out during WWII, when the parallels between the Revolutionary War and the “current day” are especially closely drawn. An excellent read for just about anyone who enjoys historical fiction.

Such a great book! I loved seeing what people like John Hancock were really like.

I so loved this book when I was a kid. You really get caught up in the characters and Johnny's fate after his devastating accident.

Good book to tell about how the Revolutionary War got started and what it was like before when America was on the brink of war.
