There wasn't much in the way of courtroom/legal procedure in this installment except for a couple unrelated events thrown in. More about police work and tracking down a kid without much suspense. ( )

I thought this was an entertaining read...although I don't care for the duplicity involved and the sense that there were no other options but to take that particular course of action. The theme of the story seems to be act first and wriggle out of consequences later. As this series is written with a younger audience in mind, I'm not overjoyed with the message that younger audience may receive...and decide to apply to their own lives. ( )

Theodore Boone: The Abduction is a book about how a young boy searches for his friend who has mysteriously disappeared in the middle of the night. It is up to Theo to find her kidnapper or a reason why she is missing. His friend had dysfunctional parents who did not seem to care about her at all. Her father was always on the road and her mother would leave her at her house alone for days at a time. The police have one suspect in mind, but was he really the kidnapper? If not, who could it be? Was Theo's friend still alive? It is all up to Theo to find his friend and return her home safely.
This book could be used in class for several reasons. One being that no matter how young or small you may be, that does not mean you can limit yourself to what you can do. Theo is only a thirteen year old boy, but because of great determination, he is able to complete anything he puts his mind to. This book is also good for teaching students how to communicate. They should always let their parents or friends know where they are at all times. Because of lack of communication, terrible things happen in the book. So it is always important to let someone know where you are at all times.
I really liked this book because it was an easy read and it also kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I also really liked it because it was not your average mystery book. Usually detective books have protagonists who are older teens or even adults. But in this book you have a thirteen year old boy doing the work of grown men and women.
