Johnny, a young apprentice silversmith, is caught with Otis, Hancock, and John and Samuel Adams in the exciting operations and subterfuges leading up to the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington. As Johnny is forced into the role of a full-grown man in the face of his new country's independence, he finds that his relations with those he loves changes for the better as well.
Johnny Tremain is historical fiction at its best, portraying the living drama of Revolutionary Boston through the shrewd eyes of an observant boy.

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.
This book was good and I would strongly suggest this book to others! The beginning of the book is not the most exciting but is gets really good! I would not have read this book but then someone told me to read it and it was very good! you should read this book it is good! :)

I was forced to read this story as a child and I hated it. As a grown up now, I don't hate it, but it is quite dull overall.
