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...

I only noticed this was a young adult book after I got this book home but I thought I'd read it anyways. This is a huge disappointment and I would not recommend it for youth either. Everything is so right or wrong, there is no ambiguity. The tone is preachy and patronizing, sorry this is a big fail for me.

I've always enjoyed John Grisham's legal stories. When I saw he had a new character with a series, I had to look into it. It was an enjoyable and easy read with very clear and informative legal descriptions. If you are looking for a fun read, this could work. It is aimed at the pre-teen and teen crowd and the ending was rather abrupt.

i think this author is amazing

Wonderful story with a likable character named Theo who is the son of two lawyers. I highly recommend it, if you enjoy a good mystery and suspense story.

John Grisham is my new favorite author. i couldn't put it down i read it in less than 24 hours!
