Theodore Boone is the thirteen year old who knows more about the law than most adult lawyers. He certainly never expected to be the victim of crime himself. But then his bike is vandalised, he's attacked while doing his homework and, worst of all, framed for a robbery.
When stolen computer equipment turns up in Theo's school locker, the police start leaning on him hard. And he is the only suspect. What if he is found guilty?
What about his dreams of becoming a lawyer?
In a race against time, aided by his renegade uncle, Ike, Theo must find the real felon and reveal the true motivation behind the crimes of which he stands accused.
Following on from the bestselling Theodore Boone and
Theodore Boone: The Abduction, John Grisham delivers high intensity legal drama for a new generation of readers.
Although aimed I guess at the YA market I must say I found this a riveting read. On thing is for sure, as the younger readers of the Theodore Boone series mature they will want to be moving on to Grisham's 25+ adult courtroom yarns.
