A perfect murder
A faceless witness
A lone courtroom champion knows the whole truth . . . and he’s only thirteen years old
Meet Theodore Boone


In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only thirteen years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom.

But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much—maybe too much—he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial. A cold-blooded killer is about to go free, and only Theo knows the truth.

The stakes are high, but Theo won’t stop until justice is served.

Brimming with the intrigue and suspense that made John Grisham a #1 international bestseller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer will keep readers guessing and pages turning.

    I got this book because my Dad pointed this out to me. I thought it was really good because it explains what it feels like to be a kid that other kids appreciate. I learned that it is ok to do what you want to do in life and take risks if you have to,

      I read this book a while ago but I ablsolutly loved it! And even though I'm going into High School I still enjoy reading the sequels! What I really like about this series is that the same mystery goes on through every book, so you have read all the books to know what how it is solved.

                      I enjoyed John Grisham's adult novels and was excited to see that he is writing a novel indented for lower grades. This was a great read! Very action packed and informative, just like the adult books! I recommend this book to many of my boy readers and they end up LOVING the series and anxiously await the next title.
