5. Reading Journal

5.1. JOURNAL 1 : Today is one of the worst days of my life! I can’t stand it. Colonel Gower said to me, “ You’re among the enemy. You are expected to learn anything you can about them.” This is unfair. Why would I do that. I’m not an indentured. Why is he giving me orders. I don’t even know him. To make matters worse, Peter is scaring me. He is so big he could smash me with his foot. Then he decides to come in here when I say that I don’t like company. All he does is ignore me and talk about his big feet. I mean, who wants to hear about that? I should’ve just jumped off the boat and killed myself while I had the chance.

5.2. JOURNAL 2: In chapters 16 and 17, Creighton changes his loyalties from the British to the colonies. The major events that led him to changing his loyalties was when Dr. Franklin died and when he realized that the British were not as good as he thought they were. Also, when Creighton was hit on the head with the gun by Gower, he wanted to get revenge. The plan that they came up with was to feed false info towards the British and cooperate with Spanish so that they could find Washington.

5.3. JOURNAL 3: At the end of the book, I think that Creighton does become a hero because first, he saved his father, second, he got info that the Patriots needed. Third, he helped Franklin out to save his life, and lastly, he has chosen the right side. These are all reasons why Creighton has become a hero. He has shown bravery and determination when the patriots needed the most. He also had saved so many peoples lives.
