The Lovereading4Kids comment
June 2012 Book of the Month. Bestselling John Grisham's needle-sharp writing is brilliantly on display in this detective story centring on 13 year old Theodore Boone. The son of lawyers, Theo is an expert in how the law works. It's knowledge he badly needs when he finds himself framed for a crime he didn't commit. How can Theo prove that the brand new laptops in his locker were planted? How can he find out who did it? Tautly plotted, this is a gripping story with a convincing 13 year old at its heart.
Theodore Boone 3: the Accused by John Grisham
Following on from the bestselling Theodore Boone and Theodore Boone: The Abduction, John Grisham delivers high intensity legal drama for a new generation of readers.
Theodore Boone is the thirteen year old who knows more about the law than most adult lawyers. He certainly never expected to be the victim of crime himself. But then his bike is vandalised, he's attacked while doing his homework and, worst of all, framed for a robbery. When stolen computer equipment turns up in Theo's school locker, the police start leaning on him hard. And he is the only suspect. What if he is found guilty? What about his dreams of becoming a lawyer? In a race against time, aided by his renegade uncle, Ike, Theo must find the real felon and reveal the true motivation behind the crimes of which he stands accused.
