Theodore Boone: The Abduction
by John Grisham
Dutton Juvenile; First Edition edition, June 6, 2011
KIWI Magazine Review
John Grisham has taken his successful mystery formula and now writes books for the younger set with Theodore Boone, kid lawyer, as his protagonist. The formula works and the books are tidy detective stories where a kid with two lawyer parents knows his way around the courtroom and shaking down suspects. It’s an enjoyable read sans any gore or violence, appropriate for the age level.
Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever.
When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone-who knows April better than anyone-has answers.
As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it’s up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.
Filled with the page-turning suspense that made John Grisham a #1 international bestseller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone’s trials and triumphs will keep readers guessing until the very end.
