Thinking About... Favorite Books Part Four!

 Hey everyone! Here is the fourth and last post in the continuation of my favorite books.
If you missed the last post you can check it out here:        Favorite Books Part Three.
    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
    By: Mark Twain

     Here is the book synopsis I found on
    An imaginative and mischievous boy named Tom Sawyer lives with his Aunt Polly and his half-brother, Sid, in the Mississippi River town of St. Petersburg, Missouri. After playing hooky from school on Friday and dirtying his clothes in a fight, Tom is made to whitewash the fence as punishment on Saturday. At first, Tom is disappointed by having to forfeit his day off. However, he soon cleverly persuades his friends to trade him small treasures for the privilege of doing his work. 
    Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new girl in town, and persuades her to get “engaged” to him. Their romance collapses when she learns that Tom has been “engaged” before—to a girl named Amy Lawrence. Some time later, Tom, Huckleberry Finn, and Tom’s friend Joe Harper run away to an island to become pirates.

    This book is really funny and enjoyable!
    I hope you will check it out. :)

    Have a great day!
