Young adult readers can weigh in on a verdict as best-selling author, John Grisham, argues his case for law and justice before a new audience in Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer. Thirteen year old Theodore Boone knows the ins and outs of the justice system better than most as both his parents practice law. Excitement grips Theo as he anticipates an upcoming murder trial. Undisclosed evidence falls into Theo’s lap in the course of the trial. Should a guilty man go free in order to protect an innocent witness? The tangles of justice and the law are well illustrated in Grisham’s debut young adult novel.
