Theodore Boone: The Scandal
As an adult, I found this book very interesting. Only John Grisham can take it boring topic and make it interesting. If they only have these books 45+ years ago, I think I would've picked up reading at a much younger age. I can totally understand why the younger children these days are following John Grisham and the Theodore Boone series.
Wasn't exciting at all, last books were much better. Boring
One of John Grisham's poorer reads. A 13 year old boy who's pretending to be a lawyer. I'm sorry I purchased he book. Boring is the best thing I can say.
