Have you read John Grisham's juvenile lawyer series? #Review #BookTrailer

I have long enjoyed John Grisham's legal thrillers from the adult section of the library so I wondered how his juvenile series, Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer, measured up.

It turns out that I'd suggest Theodore to any middle grade reader with a desire to help out a friend. Although Theodore does have an interest in courthouse procedures and happenings he's more interested in solving problems and seeing justice done and sometimes that means a little finagling.

Of course, things are always done legally. (That's a given when you come from a family of lawyers.) That said, Mr. Grisham definitely doesn't use this series as an excuse to cheat the reader on plot detail, developments or twists. It is very much a tribute to his talents and his respect for his readers.
