"Theodore Boone : Kid Lawyer" is about a young boy who is thrilled by the law and everything about it. He always is helping someone out or helping seek justice. It was absolutely bland. There was a scene devoted to talking about wooden spoons.
I had to read this book for an afterschool club called 'Book Battle' and hated it. The plot is iffy at best and the characters are not eased into, but rather given to us in form of discription. Much like the characters, the plot, facts, as well as the ending are handed to us. Most mysteries, if this was in fact what the author was intending it to be, have strings of hints as to what the ending (be it the killer revealed or a missing violin found) might be and clues that the reader must help assemble. This falls flat on many occassions.
If I didnt have to finish the ending (I needed to for Book Battle) I wouldn't have. I would have dropped the book at Chapter Two and given it to my school's library. To the majority of the teenagers who want to read at least a somewhat interesting book... well, I would recommend Twilight over this. Which says a lot. Sorry for hating on this book but it was AWFUL. I give it one star for effort. Check out "Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer"
