The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is a fun, light-hearted story of a boy growing up in a small town in the 1800s. It follows his life over a non-specified amount of time. He plays with his friends, he camps out on an island for a few days, he goes to church and school, he witnesses a murder, he hunts for buried treasure, he gets lost in a cave, and so much more.
I’ve never been a fan of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, so I wasn’t excited about reading Tom Sawyer. As it turned out, I enjoyed Tom Sawyer quite a lot. I especially liked the chapter about taking oral examinations. My great-grandfather told stories about taking exams himself in very much the same way. I definitely recommend this book!
