This book is about the life of James Stevenson. He flashes back to when he was young and tells about his memories from when he was a young boy. He talks about his adventures in New York City and how he could not wait to grow up. This would be a good mentor text for a classroom because it teaches about how to flashback in writing. It also teaches about the differences between the authors generation and the childrens' generation.
