Description-

  • Book 2 in the thrilling young mystery series from internationally bestsellling author John Grisham
    When we last saw Theo Boone, he ensured that justice was served by uncovering evidence that kept a guilty man off of the streets. Hot off this high-profile murder trial, thirteen-year-old Theo is still dispensing legal advice to friends and teachers. But just when it seems as if his life has calmed down and gone back to the status quo, a new legal mystery comes to town, and this time it's personal.
    From the Trade Paperback edition.

Reviews-

  • DOGO Books ocelot - This is an excellent book. Theodore Boone's best friend, April Finnemore, is abducted by someone in the midst of night, when neither parent is home. The police found that the door was not forced, so it was probably someone who April trusted. Theo is trying to figure this out, when Jack Leeper comes along--a relative of April Finnemore, and also a jail escapee. What will happen to April Finnemore? This book is a wonderful book, and I would definitely recommend the whole series to everybody! It was wonderful to read this for the first time!

    Grisham, a bestseller-list fixture with his legal thrillers, makes his children's book debut with a series opener that lacks thrills. The only child of two attorneys, Theo Boone is an endearing oddball, an eighth-grader who still thinks girls have cooties, but who knows every lawyer, bailiff, and judge in town. There's an underdeveloped subplot about a best friend whose parents are divorcing, but Theo's contacts with peers mainly consist of him playing lawyer—advising one boy to have his parents file for bankruptcy to avoid foreclosure, reassuring another about his brother's drug arrest, and in the main thread, producing an eyewitness to a murder for which the prosecuting attorney, heretofore, had only circumstantial evidence. He's less a real kid than an adult's projection of what an ideal kid might be like—determined to be the "most talented linguist" in his Spanish class and appreciative of the scruffy charms of the local college team's baseball stadium. The book is smoothly written, and there's a mild tutorial on the criminal justice system ("Theo knew that in 65 percent of murder cases the defendant does not testify..."). What there isn't is any excitement. Ages 8–12.
