8th Grade 2nd Quarter Book Report: The Hidden Treasure of Glaston Mystery lures the reader to join in the adventures of the Hidden Treasure of Glaston by Eleanore M. Jewett. The year is 1117, and twelve-year Hugh finds himself in a monastery in Glastonbury, England. This is now his home, and from here his journey begins. In his search to solve the mystery, Hugh grows in a responsible, persevering, and religious young man.

During his time at the monastery, Hugh shows his developing sense of responsibility by what he says and does. Hugh's father left him the responsibility of keeping the secret of who he truly was and where he came from. Hugh told no one not even Lord Abbot and only Dickon found out who he truly was. Though Hugh wanted to leave and go explore with his best friend, Dickon, Hugh stayed and finished the work that Brother John assigned him. Hugh's duty was long and tiring, but he knew that without him the monks could not copy the books. Finally, when the book of the Seynt Graal was “stolen” Hugh knew that it was his job to get it back. Hugh suspected that the archdeacon and minstrel of the king stole the book and it was his fault it was stolen because he was the one who showed them where the book was hidden. Hugh's sense of responsibility grew every day during the story.

Hugh demonstrates perseverance many times by what he thinks, says, or does. At some points, because of Hugh's lame leg, Hugh couldn't walk as fast as the others and never did he ask them to slow down. Also, when Hugh found the missing pages to the book of the Seynt of Graal Brother John made him work for 2 hours straight while the other monks were eating dinner, but Hugh didn’t complain once. Dickon told Hugh that he shouldn't wast his time on finding and fixing the missing pages from the book of Seynt of Graal. However, Hugh knew that the pages were not only important for finding the Holy Grail, but also because the book needed to be completed. On his way to visit Master
