So I really enjoyed this book, it’s a kid’s book about a thirteen-year-old kid who has parents that are lawyers and he loves the law. He actually provides advice to kids (and teachers) about the law and helps get friends pets out of “pet jail” when they are picked up for no lease or license (etc.).
So there is a huge murder trial that’s come to town so he’s all excited about it, after all what future trill lawyer wouldn’t be? In his day to day life of trying to skip school to go to the courtroom a friend of a friend asks for some advice and it turns out he might be the key to the murder trial.
It’s a typical Grisham law fiction, except it’s not so long and convoluted that it’s an easy quick read and fun at the same time. I’d recommend this to any John Grisham fan who still reads kid books or who groans when he releases a new 700 page book because you know it’s going to be too long, but you’ll read it anyways…
I’m also finishing up Grisham’s Playing For Pizza which is not a law book about a down-and-out football player who takes a football (Not soccer) job in Italy.
