A quick and breezy read. And it is good that Grisham didn't make Boone perfect, despite he being the central character of the story. He has flaws, just like any 13-year-old kid, just that he is much more well-versed in law than people his age. ( )

While the story is far from perfect, it is much better than the last two. It is also much easier to side with Theo in the animal trial of this book, because from the point of view of the reader, Theo is objectively right (we see his dog getting attacked).

I also like that Theo's actions, or rather his rank within the Scouts and the responsibility that comes with it, have consequences when someone gets injured. This and a moral dilemma that Theo has to deal with later in the book make The Activist a more mature book than books two and three. ( )

Narrated by Richard Thomas (John-Boy Walton!). The town is split over the proposal to build a bypass through town. Good for business and the local economy or bad for the health of the community? Theodore and his friends work intensely to keep the bypass from becoming reality. John Grisham can keep adult readers on the edges of their seats but he's tone deaf to the lives of children. No real kids talk like Theodore and his friends whose dialogue is stiff verging on formal. And chemistry class in middle school? Nahhhh... Richard Thomas does a fair job with the material though. ( )

Theodore Boone is back, and heā€™s facing his most dangerous case yet. As Strattenburg sits divided over a hot political and environmental issue, Theo finds himself in the middle of the battle. When he uncovers corruption beneath the surface, Theo will confront bigger risks than ever to himself and those he loves. But even face-to-face with danger, Theodore Boone will do whatever it takes to stand up for whatā€™s right.
