As an avid John Grisham reader I was excited to receive a copy of "Theodore Boone kid lawyer". The book did not disappoint; written in Grisham's usual fast paced style, it was hard to put down. As usual, it features a lawyer as the main character, but in this case the lawyer is an ordinary kid who goes to school. His parents are both lawyers so it makes sense that Theodore would be immersed in a legal world. He becomes involved in a high profile murder trial in his town. The book would be most appropriate for students in grade 4 and higher and serves as an introduction to the field of law for children. There is another book in the series called "The Abduction"; I look forward to reading it and any other additions to this collection in the future.
