Great book for kids and adults. Reminded me of Encyclopedia Brown from back in the day. Did not like the ending of the book though. No closure ( )

Theodore Boone is the son of two lawyers and go figure, he himself wants to be one. He spends more time at his parents’ law office and the courtrooms than he does, well, anywhere else. For a thirteen year old, he knows just as much about the law as the many lawyers and judges in the city of Strattenburg.

When a murder trial is taking place in their court, it becomes all anyone can talk about because it happened right in their small city. With his interest in law, of course Theo is dying to watch the trial and see the outcome, but instead, he soon finds himself caught in the middle of the trial when an unidentified witness confides in him with what he knows about the murder. Now Theo has to decide what he should do, risk ousting this witness or watch a cold-blooded murderer walk free?

What I enjoyed about this book is that it makes the legal procedures in some areas of law easy to understand, as this is novel written for the middle grade. It covers a little of divorce procedures, immigration, foreclosure, and of course, the process of a criminal trial. This book is a trademark Grisham novel, only for younger readers, or it can even serve as an introduction to his many adult novels. Either way, if you like legal thrillers and mystery in the middle grade/young adult spectrum, this is a novel you should check out.

The only issue I had with the novel was its ending. It left me a bit unsatisfied and just feeling “meh” when I realized it was over.

Other than that though, it’s definitely a good book. ( )

This book is about a thirteen year old boy who wishes to become a lawyer just like both of his parents. After a murder happens in town and Theo is brought into the case, he has to decide whether to bring in the only witness, and illegal immigrant from Salvador who risks being deported if he testifies, or let the man the Theo knows committed the murder walk away. I gave this book four stars because I think it depicts all of the many flaws in our justice system that lead to a man being deported if he testifies against a murderer in court but I think the kids would kind of struggle finding it super interesting. This is an amazing book to read in and English classroom because it teaches the students about the justice system and the many laws our government has in place as well as teaching them about ethics and morals.

Writing: 4.5; very good writing by this established author.
Theme: 4.0; Theodore Boone, a thirteen-year-old aspiring lawyer, investigates a murder case in which the suspect is about to be let off of his charge. When Theo learns of some critical evidence that could prove the suspect's guilt, he seeks out help from his law-centric family in order to handle the situation by-the-book and let justice prevail.
Content: 4.5; some talk of murder and a few disobedient youths are mentioned to smoke, but any incidents of disobedience or rebellion are looked upon with disdain.
Language: 5.0; nothing objectionable.

The first novel in the youth-aimed Theodore Boone series, Kid Lawyer is John Grisham's first foray into the young reader world. The titular character, thirteen-year-old Theodore Boone, is the son of two lawyers and hopes to become one himself. Theo knows the ins and outs of the law system and is acquainted with almost every law official in his hometown, from the judges to the police officers. When Pete Duffy is accused of murdering his wife for some much-needed insurance money, Theo becomes the number one follower of the Duffy trial and assumes the man is guilty. When there is no concrete evidence to prove his guilt, everything looks as if the trial will go in Duffy's favor -- until a surprise witness reveals some critical info to Theo, but he refuses to come before the court. Theo must decide whether to honor the code of the law or his word to his friend when justice hangs in the balance. Overall, the book is a fun read. This is actually my first novel by Mr. Grisham, and the writing is fantastic. The characters are also likable enough, and the whole overall theme and style is similar to a deeper Encyclopedia Brown tale, as the mystery is of course more fleshed out and aimed for an older audience. Unfortunately, the book does begin to drag on later, and everything begins to move rather slowly. Not only that, but the ending, while implied, is left open and the mystery is never officially solved. Though I do know that there are more books in the series, so hopefully they will give an answer to the story's fulfillment. All in all, I look forward to reading further entries in this series; while there are a few moments the book is a bit unbelievable and simple (like, as I said, Encyclopedia Brown) and the plot drags on, it is a fun read and the mystery was engaging throughout. Recommended for fans of mystery, especially for younger readers. The law and mystery stuff doesn't seem to be too over the heads of younger audiences. ***Finished February 18, 2020*** ( )

Grisham tells his story scrupulously, explaining fine points of criminal law and, as far as I can tell (not being a lawyer myself), sticking to legal reality. As a civics lesson it goes down smoothly, as storytelling only partly so. There’s a reason that movies and TV shows about attorneys are full of courtroom baloney — it’s entertaining!
