Johnny Tremain, by Esther Forbes

Contributor
Summary
In 1773 in Boston, Johnny Tremain is fourteen and apprenticed to a silversmith. He is cheerful and clever and lords over the other apprentices until the tragic day when a crucible of molten silver breaks and Johnny's right hand is so burned as to be useless. After a period of despair and humiliation, Johnny becomes a dispatch rider for the Committee of Public Safety, a job that brings him in touch with Otis, Hancock, John and Samuel Adams, and other Boston patriots, and with all the exciting currents and undercurrents that were to lead to the Boston Tea Party. To read Johnny Tremain is to live through two dramatic years of our country's history and see these real events from a new angle through the shrewd eyes of an observant boy
