These are cute little stories. They aren't anything all that special, but fun nonetheless. ( )

Thirteen-year-old aspiring lawyer Theodore Boone is falsely accused in a robbery and must fight to clear his name.

This is the third installment in the 'Theodore Boone' series. It begins with a reference to a murder case and trial that is a carryover from Book 1 -- 'Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer'. It addresses the issue of presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law. In parallel to this, young Theodore is accused of a crime which he insists he did not commit, but all the clues point to him. For the younger audience, for whom this series is targeted, it is a very good introduction and lesson to government and law, told in a form of a story. As always, for young or adult readers, Grisham delivers yet another legal thriller. ( )

Wish to read the rest of the series. One of the very few books so far where you feel the natural flow of words. The book was very realistic and absorbing. Couldn't lift my eyes off. 5 out of 5 without the slightest hesitation. ( )

The third book in the Theodore Boone series finds the clever and legally-aware year eight student attending the re-trial of a man accused of killing his wife. Theodore feels very lucky to get the last seat at the media-filled event. Theo might only be thirteen, but he was the one who uncovered the key evidence in the original murder trial and he is very keen to see what will happen this time. Almost immediately something seems wrong and eventually those in the courtroom learn that the suspect has skipped bail and is on the run. Theo wonders how anyone could spend his life on the run.
Theo's life however takes a turn for the worse. In the day of the trial Theo discovers that his school locker has been broken into and some of his belongings have been stolen. However he is in too much of a hurry to report it. Next his bike tyres start being systematically slashed but worst of all he is then accused of breaking into a store and stealing computer products. After they receive an anonymous tip the police arrive at school but knowing he is innocent Theo lets them check his locker. To his horror they find some of the stolen goods in there. Theo and his friends suspect it must be another student but Theo cannot think of anyone who could hate him that much.
Theo is desperate to prove his innocence so he and his friends start working to prove to the authorities that they are wrong but evidence starts mounting up. The suspense builds as Theo works to find the real culprit before he is charged and is put into the system and ends up in court, on the wrong side of the table. ( )
