The thrilling young mystery series from internationally bestselling author John Grisham!

In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he's only thirteen 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. 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.

The Grisham response to "Encyclopedia Brown." Enjoyed it. Tailored toward Teen boys. The main character is 13. The Story has twists, will keep the reader guessing.

This book, the start to an epic series, is amazing. Firstly, I want to tell you that there isn't much action in this book, so if you're looking for something along the lines of Percy Jackson, then you're at the wrong place. However, if you like mysteries and want to know more about the law, this book is your soul mate. Honestly, I first came across this book when I was nine. It seemed quite uninteresting and boring to me back then, but now I love it. This book is full of suspense, mystery, and plot twists that will make you stay up as long as necessary to finish it. It is one of those books that you can't stop reading once you get started. Great read.

I like Grisham and I did like this set up to the Theodore Boone series but like so many series nowadays it was just a set up with the meat of the story to come in later books. I would recommend it to a thinking kid, not much action.

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...
