    "This book is a great introduction for youth to the ins and outs of the American Revolution. The story is far more compelling that average historical fiction. I like that it uses a coming of age tale to explore political upheaval. "

    "This is a good work of fiction. I think it qualifies as a very realistic depiction of life during pre-Revolutionary War Boston. Johnny faces many challenges and young adults especially will identify with and enjoy this story. "

    "Johnny Tremain is a book by Esther Forbes. It is available from Amazon for $7.99 for a paperback. The story centers on Johnny who is an apprentice silversmith in 1775 Boston. It is a good story that I read when I was in school many years ago. I found the book to be very interesting and well worth the read. Pick this up and let your kid read it. It fits the topic extremely well."

    "I did not feel that this was a classic christian book. I felt more it was a historical type book for kids. It tells the story of a young apprentice in 1775 Boston who becomes a spy in the American Revolution. This is a great children's book full of life lessons. It is well written and interesting."

    "I don't know what else to say about this but yes, yes yes! Get a $2 book to help spark the imagination about a time in our country that was very different from today and put yourself in an important place and time frame in our history."

    "A 4.5 star rated book set in revolutionary Boston about a young man who gets caught up int he middle of the entire thing. Not only does this book pack some punch it also helps the young reader relate to the main character "

    "This book is great for ages 11 and up. I homeschool, so I'm always on the lookout for well written, interesting, historically accurate books for my children. This is a good choice for the American Revolution time frame. This is fiction, but it helps you envision life during that time frame. A good choice for middle school ages. "

    "My son fell in love with this book the first day he got it. I'm happy I picked it up for him because it seems to be a great novel set in the period of the Revolutionary War. So not only is he getting entertained by reading, he's also learning a bit of history along the way. That sounds like a win-win to me!"
