Publisher's Summary

Follow an errand boy through colonial Boston as he spreads word of rebellion.

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.

Colonial Interviews

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.
