Theodore Boone: The Abduction by John Grisham
Dutton, $16.99
I loved Grisham's first novel about kid lawyer Theo Boone. This new book is no less thrilling. The excitement grips readers from the very first page, when Theo’s friend April is abducted in the middle of the night—and it’s up to Theo to figure out what happened. Who says a 13-year-old can’t investigate a crime better than the police?
