Excellent book!! This story is timeless, although it speaks about a very specific time in history. It has held up very well since it won the Newbery Award in 1944. The appeal for me is that it shows the growth and development of the person of Johnny Tremain while it chronicles the growth of a movement that resulted in the development of a new country.

I like this. It reminded me of what the book was about in one, concise statement. :)
