Theodore Boon: The Accused by John Grisham
According to my dad, Grisham is a well-accomplished adult writer. I think he makes a wonderful children's author too. Theodore 'Theo' Boone is in the sticky spot himself in the third of his series. A local computer store was robbed and Theo is the prime suspect. The police think they've nailed him, so it's up to Theo to prove himself innocent. On top of being accused, somebody is out to get Theo. Slashed bike tires and his favorite baseball cap stolen aren't even the worst of it. This book kept me constantly turning pages. Grisham successfully combines funny and serious in a perfect blend. I recommend this book for any boy or girl ages 13-15. If you liked this, you'd like the other Theo books; Theodore Boone: Kid lawyer and Theodore Boone: The Abduction. You also might enjoy the Hardy Boys series and Nancy Drew series. The book is 272 pages. Happy Reading, NNYer!
