December Book Blast: Day 6

Hey all,

My December Day 6 pick is…

THEODORE BOONE: KID LAWYER by John Grisham!

Dec Book Blast Day 6

 

From the Publisher:

In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13 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 murder trial. A cold blooded killer is about to go free, and only Theo knows the truth. The stakes are high but Theo won’t stop until justice is served.

From me:

I’ve read several of John Grisham’s books for adults and when I heard he was writing a middle grade series for children, I was intrigued. He is a fantastic story teller after all, and I must say, he has created a fantastic protagonist in Theo Boone and amazing storylines with this one too. This first book in the series is just as good as I hoped it would be. Give it a try, or buy it for your law-loving middle schooler. This one is a must read!
