Overview


The Revolutionary War JOURNAL OF WILLIAM THOMAS EMERSON is now in paperback with an exciting repackaging!

On an early summer morning in 1774, William Emerson, on the run from his abusive foster parents, awakens to a dusty-faced stranger who has discovered his roadside bed. After hearing the boy's story, Mr. John Wilson--a writer for and organizer of the revolutionary cause--invites Will to accompany him into Boston. From that day forward, Will lives and works at the Seven Stars Tavern, gradually earning the trust of the colonial patriots who spend their time there. Through listening to tavern talk and closely observing Mr. Wilson, Will begins to grasp the importance of the colonial cause. But when conflicts between the citizens of colonial Boston and the British lobsterbacks escalate, Will is confronted with an impossible question--how much is he willing to sacrifice for the revolution and the freedom of his fellow citizens? In the pages of his diary, Will captures the patriotic spirit of the revolutionary period and the camaraderie that comes with fighting for a common cause.

    Overall the book was just okay. I was looking for an interesting novel to have my U.S. History students read while studying the time period. While there is quite a bit of historical content, I think it's a little boring and don't think 13 year olds will find it very interesting. Perhaps it would be better suited for a younger reader, but I don't know that they would understand some of the events that are alluded to. I

    Book Review Outline
    Book title and author: A True Patriot: The Journal of William Thomas Emerson by Barry Denenberg
    Title of review: A True Patriot
    Number of stars (1 to 5): 4 Stars

    Introduction
    This book is about a boy named William Thomas Emerson, and how Mr. Wilson and Mrs. Thompson changed his life. It is also about the 13 colonies gaining independence from Britain.
    Description and summary of main points
    Will ran away from his home and his abusive parents. Mr. Wilson found Will on his roadside bed, and invited him to Boston. Will lived with Mrs. Thompson in Boston, with a little girl named Becca, and Mrs. Thompson’s dog. He worked at the Seven Stars Tavern. Listening to the people in the Tavern talk, he realizes how important the revolutionary cause is, and wants to do all he can to help. They are ruled by the British. The British soldiers do very horrible things. They set houses on fire, shot wild animals for no reason, murdered families, and they even killed children. Will is trying to decide how much he is willing to sacrifice for his freedom, and the freedom of the other citizens.
    Evaluation
    This book is very interesting. There are many emotional things that happen.
    Conclusion
    Many people were murdered by the British soldiers. The colonists were really angry about them killing innocents, and taking their freedoms.
    Your final review
    This book is pretty good.
