Having read a number of John Grisham's books, this was different - it was light , easy reading but still informative on the legal jargon and stuff. Good start for the younger age group.

This is a great book! I really, really liked it. For me, the cover was a bit misleading, I thought it was going to be a bit more sombre and scary, like the other books in the series. I also liked it a lot because you learn a bit about politics, law and legal procedures. I still think there could be a bit more character development, especially around Theo.

Building an extra four-lane highway across three soccer fields and an elementary school yard, seems to be a bad idea. Polluting the air with hazardous chemicals and gases, the idea of a bypass would be a great idea; at least to some people.

Theodore Boone didn't like the idea of this at all. Theodore thought that it would be a bad idea to pollute the air where many kids would be playing. for this reason, Theodore Boone was prepared to fight, although he didn't know what he was in for.

Theodore an his friends create a campaign that most of his schoolmates and families are involved in, hoping that this would help stop the bypass. Create a moving video and make safety masks. You would think that this would stop the bypass, but think again.

The people in favour will fight until they get what they want, but Theodore and his supporters will fight twice as hard, for what's right.
