He lives with his Aunt Polly in the Mississippi River town of St Petersburg, Missouri. He plays hooky from school; hangs around with Huck Finn, the unsophisticated son of the village drunkard; and deceives his friends into trading their treasures with him.Tom falls in love with Becky Thatcher, a new arrival in town, who returns his affection initially, and even agrees to an 'engagement'. However, after a slip of the tongue from Tom, she walks off in a huff. From innocent and imaginary adventures, Tom's life suddenly takes a new turn. One night, while Tom and Huck Finn are in a graveyard, they witness an incident they should not have. Terrified, they flee from the spot, and swear a blood oath that they will never reveal their secret to anyone. Tom and Huck then find themselves entangled in a series of real and exciting adventures, with dangerous men constantly at their heels. Can the boys stand up to the occasion, and become real-life heroes? Will they ever be able to reclaim their normal, carefree lives again?Hide synopsis

Written in 1876, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a classic story about a mischievous boy in mid-nineteenth century Missouri. According to author Mark Twain, these adventures are based on his personal experiences. Tom Sawyer and his friends get into all sorts of mischief; the boys even attend their own funeral! Twain capably develops some of the most famous characters in American literature; these include Aunt Polly, Becky Thatcher, and Tom Sawyer's friend Huckleberry Finn. I found myself laughing out loud during several parts of the book. With humor and/or adventure on every page, strong character development, realistic dialogue, and a fast-moving plot, this is classic American literature at its best. Now, I look forward to reading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn!
"The Adentures of Tom Sawyer" is more child frindly than the Huckleberry Fin book. Considerably shorter Tom Sawyer is full of more charm. Tom is an old fashioned bad boy. His antics are amusing and high spirited. Some of the jokes are outdated. but still possesses a charm. Some younger readers might not appreciate the old time humor. This is a great read.
