Product Description

A perfect crime A faceless witness A lone courtroom champion knows the whole truth . . . and he's only thirteen years old Meet Theodore Boone

The first in a series of legal mysteries for middle grade readers from best selling author John Grisham. 13 year old boy Theodore Boone wants to be a lawyer. Both of his parents are lawyers. He comes from a loving home, eats dinner with his parents, and dreams of following in their footsteps - they're both lawyers too. And service is a big part of Theo's family: volunteering at their local church and serving the poor are at the top of their priorities.

In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he's only thirteen years old, Theo Boone thinks he's one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk-and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom.

But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much-maybe too much-he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational trial. A criminal is about to go free, and only Theo knows the truth.

The stakes are high, but Theo won't stop until justice is served.

Brimming with the intrigue and suspense that made John Grisham a #1 international bestseller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer will keep readers guessing and pages turning.

    This review was written for Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer #1.
    I like the story. It kept my interest and I liked the characters and the mystery. For a young person that is reading this it explained court processes very well. I would not start 8 yr olds with this though. Maybe 10 & up. Theodore's uncle smokes and drinks and as a joke the uncle offers Theo a beer or Sprite.(Theo is in middle school). This part bothers me. Of course, Theo accepts the Sprite. The author also brings up the subject of battered women and shelters and other subjects that an 8 yr old (3/4grade) really doesn't need to read. This area could have been left out and the story would still have been good. So, overall review is good. I purchased the book for my church library and read all youth/young adult books for the content. I like almost all of the book, it is just the touchy topics that some parents may want to be aware of. John Grisham is an excellant adult author.He is capable of writing a book for youth that is exciting and suspensful w/o smoking, drinking and the like.
