(2003)
A novel by

 
 
Set in New England just as troops are returning from World War I, this is a classic American coming-of-age story. Curious and impulsive, 12-year-old Jeremy is always getting into trouble. This time, after an argument with his father, Jeremy decides to run away to Boston to meet his older brother's troop ship. Jeremy's adventures - and misadventures - provide plenty of opportunities for him to use his common sense and determination, from his train trip through rural New Hampshire to his wide-eyed explorations of Boston upon his arrival there.

Showing the world through the eyes of a young boy, George Harrar's moving, suspenseful story casts Jeremy's personal struggles and successes against the backdrop of the events unfolding on the world stage. The Trouble with Jeremy Chance is a tale of heroism in unlikely places.
