It's December 16, 1773, and Boston is about to explode! King George has decided to tax the colonists' tea. The Patriots have had enough. Ethan, the printer's errand boy, is running through town to deliver a message about an important meeting. As he stops along his route - at the bakery, the schoolhouse, the tavern, and more - readers learn about the occupations of colonial workers and their differing opinions about living under Britain's rule.
This fascinating book is like a field trip to a living history village.

Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.
I had previously read this with my oldest, now listened to it on audio with my younger son. While the audio was well-done, the lack of a linear narrative made this harder to follow on audio.
Despite that, it is a well-done book presenting different individual perspectives on the American Revolution era.
