Read full description of the books:
Tom Dolan, at 13, sets a goal for himself to move Bert Breen's barn to his family's own property. The goal seems bigger than he can manage, but his slow, steady pursuit of the goal ultimately changes his life in ways he could not imagine.
With the exception of a few passages with too much detail about the physical structure of barns, I loved this book. It truly exemplifies the adage, "Slow and steady wins the race."
From the book:
"Don't run scared, Tom. Most jobs seem a lot bigger than they are until you've got into them. Then they look a lot more possible."
"... Tom realized that Mr. Armond didn't recognize who he was. That made Tom feel good inside. Having things happen bit by bit you didn't realize how big the changes were."
