Thirteen-year-old Theodore Boone may not be a lawyer, but he already acts like one, spending more time at the courthouse than even his lawyer parents. He’s fascinated by the trial of the century and is pretty sure the defendant committed the crime. When an eyewitness tells Theo what he saw, but makes Theo swear he won’t tell anyone else, Theo is in way over his head and needs help.
Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer by John Grisham is a simple, but engaging, thriller aimed at middle schoolers. It is well written. The only problem is the end wraps things up very quickly and is predictable by about 2/3 of the way through the book.
