Theodore Boone : Kid Lawyer

Posted on: July 13, 2010

Theodore Boone : Kid Lawyer is the young fiction novel by John Grisham, this book is for specially 10-15 year old and also for adults who love John Grisham’s legal fiction.

Theodore Boone or Theo Boone is 8th Grade student, who’s father is a lawyer and mother is also a divorce lawyer and his uncle was also lawyer and his grand father was also a lawyer, technically speaking the whole Boone family was full of lawyers. No surprise that, Theo also wants to become lawyer or judge, he is not sure, whether to become a lawyer or judge.

Theo in his class is well knows as legal adviser for kids as well as for adults, this where Grisham Shines, because he will make you believe that kid can know law better than adults and other lawyers. Theo gives free advice to all his class mates and teachers free of charge, he like only one class, that is Government, he want to spend much time in Court than in School.

Theo delivers free lectures to all the class mates on Criminal Law, Family Law and Foreclosure law. I think this an attempt by Grisham to make kids aware of the American law and he does it very well in this novel.

The main plot line of this book is the murder trial at Strattenburg after many years and every one excited about this and wants to see the trial. When his father and teacher refuses to send him to the court, he hacks into the courts computer and reads the updates about the case on daily bases.

Theo suddenly found himself in middle of the biggest murder trial in Strattenburg’s history. Can he solve the mystery?

I really disappointed by the ending of the book, the murder mystery is not full suspense, you can easily guess. I think he (John Grisham) is going to make the series out of it. I will recommend this for Kids and those who loves John Grisham’s Legal Fiction, though this not one of his best work, but you will enjoy it.

I am giving it : 3.5/5.

I didn’t agree with your review in full. On the other hand, I’m a great believer in having your own opinions on books, so let’s agree to disagree. It was a very nice review. 🙂
