4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting mystery thriller for kids
I have read John Grisham novels in the past and enjoyed them and so was excited to read this middle school novel - I was not disappointed, this is an exciting, intreguing read for kids.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitiveness from previous books in the series.
I bought the series of 5 books, simply because there was no warning that the books are for teenagers and I'm 78, and I've been reading Grisham from before he was writing even.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting mystery thriller for kids, July 24 2011
I have read John Grisham novels in the past and enjoyed them and so was excited to read this middle school novel - I was not disappointed, this is an exciting, intreguing read for kids.

The beginning immediately draws the reader in when Theo's friend April has been abducted. There is a kind of tough talking detective feel to the book, a bit abrubt and edgy. At the same time, Grisham makes the reader feel for April and her plight and want her rescued, as well as feeling total sympathy for Theo in his plight to find his friend.

Theo is a fun character who will appeal to kids who like smart dectective novels. He has a passion for the law which is contageous and keeps the reader turning the pages to watch him figure out what happened to his friend.

There are times when the book is a little repetative, but overall, it is well written and kids who like mystery, solving puzzles and suspense will really enjoy this series of books. Grisham successfully combines the mystery solving Nancy Drew type story with a kid friendly legal thriller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitiveness from previous books in the series., May 21 2014

I bought the series of 5 books, simply because there was no warning that the books are for teenagers and I'm 78, and I've been reading Grisham from before he was writing even. These books were very difficult to comprehend, mostly because the first one didn't have an ending. I kept on reading them all-;), and discovered there was so much repetitiveness in each book from one to another, I don't know how a young teenager would have my patience to read them all. I am a retired entrepreneur from the print industry, from machine sales to press operator to proofreader to 2 book author myself, I admire and enjoyed John Grisham so much over the years I thought he should be aware of his proofreader? Publisher?
