Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer

by John Grisham

Hi, it’s Emmie Enchanted again. This time I’m writing about a realistic-fiction mystery book. Where are we now? Oh, we’re in Strattenburg. Strattenburg is the small town where our story begins. This book is about a boy named Theo. Theo goes to school every day, just like me and you. He’s 13 years old. He takes a lot of classes. That is, until a big murder trial makes its way to town. Theo watches it. At the end, Theo realizes the truth. Will everyone else recognize the truth? Will a man be punished for what he has not done? Or will a man get away with murder? Will everything work out or will it all fall apart? As I always say, read the book to find out!!

Fun Fact: The author who wrote this book lives in Mississippi. My Great-Grandmother knows him!!

I think you should read this book because I know that everyone (at some point) loves a mystery. You never want to stop reading this book. Everything is a mystery until the end.

A few helpful things I like to say about the books I read:

“Run and Get Mom” (how I describe the scariness factor):
There was one scary part that I thought you might find a little scary if you’re 6 years old. But it wasn’t that scary.

“Yucky-Lovey Stuff” (how I describe the romance factor):
There was no yucky lovey stuff in this book. You’re safe!!


I give this book 5 wands.
Everyone loves a mystery. You don't know what's coming until the very end!
