For those who know me personally, they would know that I have a love and hate relation with John Grisham books. Some I love to death. Some I would condemn.
When I spotted this in BookXcess, I was wondering if I should buy it or not.
The story is about Theodore Boone, whose parents are lawyers and he is inspired to be a lawyer and maybe some day a judge.
Theo is not your typical boy. Although he is only 13 years old, he knows everyone in the Court from the Judges, Policemen and the court clerks. He know tonnes about the law and frequently help his schoolmates with their family's legal problem.
And this is how he become entangled into the most sensational murder trial a Strattenburg. He is the only one who knows that a murderer is going to walk out of the Court a freeman. He knows that the man is guilty. The stakes are high and he won't stop till justice is served.
I enjoyed reading this book a lot. It's a refreshing book written through the point of view of a 13 year old kid, although I must say that this kid does seems to be mature for his age. It's not impossible as nowadays kids seems to grow up very fast.
