    "This has been the favorite"

    My two sons, ages 14 and 12, read and listened to this book this year. They both loved the book and audible so much they insist it's the favorite for the year. Great voice and great book.

    "Great book, highly reccomended!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this audio book to friend because it's very interesting but it also teaches you a good lesson.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favorite thing about this story was the setting. It's a great story but I love how they incorporated things like Lexington and concord, the Boston tea party etc..


    Which scene was your favorite?

    SPOILER ALERT(:

    My favorite scene Rab's death. Not to sound harsh because I love Rab but after his death I felt like although it was heartbreaking Johnny really learned something that sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in and make sacrifices.
    'A man can stand up...'


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! This book was mandatory for my school and I had to read it one chapter at a time but at first I wanted to literally finish the whole story.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is great!!
