There's a new kid on the young fiction block, and this one really does have serious powers: Theodore Boone, half-boy, half-lawyer... fans will be pleased to know there will be more of Theo's adventures to come.
If you aspire to turn your children into lawyers who will keep you in your old age, John Grisham's Theodore Boone, his first novel for young people, might be for you.
Contemporary lit for young readers has its icons: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl. Make way for the new kid on the block.
Grisham is wise and pragmatic about the world: poor parenting, prescription drug misuse and the violent lives of drifters all feature in this fast-paced tale.
Praise for THEODORE BOONE: Not since Nancy Drew has a nosy, crime-obsessed kid been so hard to resist.
Gripping... I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery. I think everyone will be enthralled by Theodore Boone.
