The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer:

The missal of a young man, as he grows up in Missouri.

My favorite quote from the book:

"The less there is to justify a traditional custom, the harder it is to get rid of it."

Questions to ponder while reading Tom Sawyer:

How well do you barter?

Have you ever run away from home?

My review of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer:

A childhood classic.

Funny and irreverent.

This is the ultimate "boys will be boys" story and is challenged all of the time. Be a rebel and read it.
