12 yr old Jeremy gets into quite a bit of trouble, but he sticks up for his beliefs to his father over the "spite" fence wan elderly neigbor. After a whipping from his father, Jeremy heas out to Boston to find his older brother Davey' ship that's bringing him home from WWI. Jeremy encounters the famous Boston Molasses explosion (Jan.1919 Purity Distillery) where he helps rescue a fire fighter. ok
This is a nice book about the time right after World War I. Jeremy finds himself disagreeing with his father over some issues concerning his neighbor.

It's a nice read about the thoughts of a young boy who is learning that his father isn't always right and how that changes things in his world.
