Lewis Carroll Shelf Award,  The Great American Read #17 (PBS.org Top 100)

Tom Sawyer is one of the most popular protagonists in the history of American literature. Although Tom resides in a small, ordinary Missouri town, his daring exploits land him in the center of many thrilling adventures. Tom lives with his Aunt Polly, an elderly woman who dearly loves her nephew but struggles to control her mischievous charge. Tom loathes going to school or church. He would rather spend time immersed in fictional plots or romancing Becky Thatcher, the new girl in town. Tom envies the life of Huckleberry Finn, the town outcast. Huck, homeless and essentially an orphan, can do whatever he pleases and doesn't have to obey anyone. 

And then, while testing a wart-removal cure in the town graveyard, Tom and Huck witness the brutal murder of Dr. Robinson! Throw in some buried treasure, getting lost in a cave during a Sunday School picnic, and being threatened by Injun Joe and you've got real adventure!
