I love it, the surprise witness was really a surprise to me.

My heart was pounding after I read what happened to Judge Boone.

It was the perfect murder. The prosecution’s case was circumstantial. The murderer set everything up perfectly and he had the town’s most corrupt and unscrupulous defense attorney to get him off. It’s going to be the trial of the century, and Theodore Boone has wangled front row seats for his entire class to take an all-day field trip.

Theodore, you see, wants to be a lawyer like his parents. He’s already started advising his classmates (pro bono) on minor legal issues. (Did you know there was a court room for misbehaving pets? True.) That’s why one of Theo’s friends feels like he can come to Theo about his cousin. The cousin who secretly witnessed the crime. Who found a piece of crucial evidence. The cousin who is also too terrified to come forward and swears Theo to secrecy.

Should Theo betray his friend? What if the evidence isn’t really good enough, the eyewitness unreliable? What if no-one believes him? And what if a cold-blooded killer gets away with murder.

It’s just another day for the world’s youngest lawyer.

Even if he’s only in middle school, he won’t stop until justice is done...
