    "Fantastic for young audience, Good for adults"

    Grisham does a great job of taking his great law drama style and putting it on the level of a young adult (ages 8-16 IMO). In an unobtrusive way, he explains any of the technical aspects of law that are critical to the plot. He goes "out on a limb" and creates a character that has a good relationship with his parents without the parents kowtowing to the child.
    Adults will enjoy the story as well. The plot is not as filled with twists and turns as his normal, but that is to be expected with the target audience. I did finish the book feeling like he had intended to write three more chapters, but cut it for some reason.
    Nevertheless, it was a good read (listen). I hope this isn't his last for this audience. I'm looking forward to my kids having more of these.

    Story
    "Enjoyable for adults and children"
    If you could sum up Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer in three words, what would they be?

    Family Fun


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer?

    When Theodore struggled with fighting in school. He is not a fighter but struggled with the concept of sticking up for right vs wrong. A very real everyday struggle for children and adults.


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

    The uncle


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. Its a book that my daugther and I listen to together.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book that can be listened to as a family. The tv is off or in the car the radio is off. Conversation regarding characters and situations in the book follow.

    "If you need a cute story..."

    Well, this is definitely a 'kids' book, but a very good listen even for a mature person. I am an avid Grisham listener and this book proved a nice break. Being a grandfatther, I will be reading this book to my grandsons. The story provides a good sense of strive for what you want, be honest, think things through, help others, and most of all an education of the justicial system, abeit from a simpler approach, but very well put. Recommended for young readers.

    "Sooooo great!"

    As a Grisham fan, I had to listen to EVEN this one! I'm sure it was geared to a much younger reader but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I am giving it to my "brainy" granddaughter who loves to read and can't wait for her reaction. Maybe she will write a review....

    "Grisham With a Good Ending! Honest!!!"

    Grisham has gotten at least one foot off his liberal soapbox, swallowed some of his cynicism, and written a thoughtful and perceptive "feel good" story. The author has crawled inside the mind of Theo Boone, a generous and very precocious thirteen year old in love with the law and passionate about helping people. He just did not expect to be involved in catching a murderer. Theodore Boone will steal your heart whether you are thirteen or thirty-nine! When I need to relax, I re-listen to several chapters. Write a sequel, John.

    "Theordore Boone: Kid Lawyer"

    Richard Thomas did a great job reading this story. I have not cared to much for some of John Grisham's most recent books but this one was great. I noted it was for children but adults will enjoy it. Other than the hero being a 12 year old the story is much more an adult story than what I think of as a child's book. Could not stop listening.

    "Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer"

    Loved it! The story captures you immediately and carries you through to the end. The characters are as vivid as the story. You'll fly through this one as it is an easy read and you won't regret that you picked it up!

    "I'm a Theodore fan"

    Grisham can build a connection between you and his characters, I'm rooting for Teddy. This book is great to get an introduction into the awesome work of Grisham.
