1.Johnny changed over the course of the book because he burned his hand and became more mature by dealing with alot of problems and stress.

2. I think Rab was the bravest because he wasnt afraid of anything and he entered the war and died for his beliefs

I think Johnny changed a lot. He grew more mature the older he became. Johnny learned more about himself and many others in Boston. He also found out about his family tree.
I thought Rab was the bravest character in the book because he was not afraid to go to war. He also wasn't afraid of anything or that is what he seems because Johnny looks up to him so much

We thought that Cilla was very brave in the book because she moved to the Lytes, just so her sister could have a better life, and opportunites. She eventualy had to give her up, so she would be happier. She also had to endure bossing around from the Lytes.

I think Johny changed a lot during the book. He grew up more,and became more mature. He worked, and moved out of his house.

To me Rab seemed like the bravest charater because he never gave up with whatever he was doing. He also wasn't afraid of anything.

1. Johnny changed from being a silversmith, to a messenger, to being a member of the sons of libery.

2. I think Rab was the bravest, for he chose to go to war, and fight for his county and belief. He also helped the sons of liberty with the boston tea party.

I thought that throughout the book Rab was the bravest character. He was willing to host the Sons of Liberty, help print rebel newspaper, and gave his life for the freedom of men.

He became a responsible man instead of a silversmith that bragged all the time.

I think that pumpkin was the bravest because he had enough courage to desert the British army. He knew he would probably be killed if he was caught but he still did it anyway.

Jacob Mulder pd.2

Johnny changed in ways such as he doesn't boss people around much anymore and he thinks of others now more then himself.

The bravest person is Rab because he wanted to fight in the war so bad and wanted a gun so bad. He also died for his country. Thats why i think Rab is the bravest.

Haley and Katherine Pd.2 said...

Johnny was a lot less stuck up. He believed he was the best silversmith in the city of Boston. After the accident, Johnny realized that to be the best, you can't be mean to all of the people around you.

I think the bravest character in the story was Cilla. She went through a lot in the story. Whether it be losing Isannah to Lavina Lyte, or losing her friend Pumpkin to the British soliders, she continued to be brave. She was a very brave character.

Jessie V. pd.2

Johnny was the bravest character i think because, he didn't really have any family and he had to adventure all alone throughout the story. Johnny Tremain was very brave because he knew Rab was going to die and sat and talked to him.

Johnny became more mature. He also thought of others before himself more often.

I think Rab was the bravest character in the book. When he left he didn't want to be "sopped" over. Also even when he was about to die he didn't lose his dignity.

1. At the beginning of the book Johnny didnt think much of politics but after joining the Boston Observer he became a Whig.

2. I think Rab is the bravest because he went against the British in the war and at that time the British were the most powerful army in the world, Rab also was brave to print out Patriot newspapers with the British encamped in Boston.

1) Johnny became more and more thoughtful for others. Before his injury he was inorant and would boss people around. Afterwards, he became more understanding and started to like his life better.
2)I think the bravest was Johnny, first he impersanated a British Soldier and pretended to be a spy. He would also go around and listen to coversations. He also made many risky commets at the Britsh soilders.

I think that Johnny was the bravest because after all he has been through he still tries to make the best of things. He also is not afraid to speak his mind and do things people would never think of doing.

Johnny changed alot after his hand got burned I think that it opened up a new world a new way of thinking. He also became more responsible for his actions over time. So I think that Johnnhy has changed alot.

I think that Rab was the bravest because he wasn't afraid to take a musket from the British. Also he fought in the war.

Johnny changed because he started off as the leader and as the story goes on he has some bad things happen to him. He gets his hand burned and people start to ignore him and don't look up to him anymore. Because of all the things he has gone through he became a better person.

1. He grew bigger and more mature, from a silversmith to a member of the Sons of Liberty, has more of an attraction to Cilla, then kissed her when he and she were older.
