Publisher's Summary

A perfect murder...a faceless witness...a lone courtroom champion knows the whole truth....and he’s only 13 years old.

Meet Theodore Boone. In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13, 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.

Brimming with the intrigue and suspense that made John Grisham a number-one international best-seller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer will keep listeners guessing.

    "Exciting Family Book Time"

    We enjoy listening to audio books especially on road trips! This book was an excellent beginning to the Theodore Boone series. We have now completed two and have greatly enjoyed both. We hope your family enjoyes the antics of this 'kid lawyer' as much as we have!

    "Kid Lawyer"
    Would you try another book from John Grisham and/or Richard Thomas?

    This was an okay story...not the John Grisham suspense or Thriller story line...don't think I would purchase another one in this series....


    Would you recommend Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer to your friends? Why or why not?

    Would not recommend to my friends as not a true John Grisham story. Kids might like this particular series...but not me.

    Story
    "It’s not fun, mystery, action."

    It’s show and tell for kids about types of lawyers and how things work. I was disappointed. Grisham is a great entertainer with his suspense books for grownups. This is his first book for kids. He changed his style. He’s talking down to kids. I was hoping for entertainment like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games, but this is not even close. It feels like show and tell for middle school. What this does NOT do is give us an entertaining story with characters, plot, action, and suspense. Nothing causes the reader to feel fear or worry. There’s no bad guy creeping up on a good guy. Instead Theo’s clients say to him “I’m worried” or “I’m really scared.”

    A variety of problems are described. I each case Theo explains what kind of law applies, what kind of lawyer can do it, and where to go. The main case in the book is a criminal trial. Pete Duffy is accused of killing his wife. Theo is in the audience for part of the trial. Theo learns about a witness who does not want to testify but knows things. I was disappointed that the Duffy trial was not finished. Theo did something which had a good result, but that was just one piece in the story. Wikipedia authors believe that the Duffy trial will continue in book 3. Book 2 is called “The Abduction” and is about Theo’s best friend April being abducted.

    The narrator Richard Thomas was fine.

    The ending was unsatisfied, to be continued.
