    Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever.... When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone - who knows April better than anyone - has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.

    Story
    Would you listen to Theodore Boone: The Abduction again? Why?

    Yes. It was an entertaining story, and although I would know the outcome I would enjoy the, "getting there."


    What did you like best about this story?

    Theodore's level of knowledge of the law is believable for a kid who grew up in a courthouse in a small town. Fortunately for him, the judges and clerks are patient and tolerant of him, as he sometimes stretches the envelope of the concept of "unauthorized practice of law!"


    Which character – as performed by Richard Thomas – was your favorite?

    Theodore, of course! He is the type of young man I wish I had been at his age!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Theodore Saves The Girl!"


    Any additional comments?

    I hope John Grisham continues the series and follows Theodore into his teen years.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Only if it could be bought cheaply.


    How could the performance have been better?

    David Case has apparently never heard the Japanese language spoken. He falls into the English habit of anglicizing all "foreign" languages. His Japanese accented English sounds Eastern European. He has only two voices, one for the Pilot, and the Japanese and the Portuguese pilot, and the other for the rest of the characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. I watched the mini-series many years ago.

  • Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer

    Story

    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.

    Brian says: "Fantastic for young audience, Good for adults"
    "The kid is amazing!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer the most enjoyable?

    It was a story that would make a good novel for adults told in a manner suitable for pre-adolescents without gore and steamy sex scenes.


    What other book might you compare Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer to and why?

    Theodore is in a similar situation to the Hardy Boys. The Hardys were a family of investigators, and the boys were following their father's footsteps investigating mysteries that came their way. The Boones are a family of lawyers with Theodore using his legal knowledge that he "picked up around the house" to help his friends.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked Theodore's familiarity with the courthouse and the staff there. This is the kind of situation that could really occur in small-town America.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Law school? He's ready NOW!"


    Any additional comments?

    There are a few tiny glitches that only an experienced, small-town courtroom lawyer would notice, and I'll bet if John Grisham re-reads his work in a few years he will see them. This is the kind of book that will keep kids reading and books relevant!
