    Theodore Boone: The Abduction by John Grisham (Dutton Books 2011)

    In Grisham’s second book in the Theodore Boone series, the “kid lawyer” gets his friends to help in the search  for his best friend, April Finnemore.  She disappeared from her bedroom at night with no signs of a struggle or break-in. The police investigation continues to hit deadends and the small town’s fear of the worst builds.

    Theo gets help from his Uncle Ike who is considered by some to be one of the town characters. Since Theo’s parents are lawyers, he has developed skills beyond the usual 13-year-old. He knows many people at the courthouse and experiences his first courtroom drama in hopes of saving a bird from the ultimate punishment.

    The publisher of “The Abduction” recommends this mystery for kids under 13. However, reviews of the book come from adult fans of John Grisham novels as well. We enjoyed the fast-paced adventure and think you will too. The author’s gift of storytelling makes another chapter in Theo’s life an enjoyable read. For more about Theodore Boone, take a look at our first review of the “Kid Lawyer.”
