Just released in May! Theodore Boone: The Accused, the third and latest book in John Grisham's mystery series for middle readers (8-13 years old), is a fast-paced, exciting ride that continues the plot from the first and second books about a notorious criminal, Pete Duffy, who has been accused of murdering his wife and is now on the run from the law. Young Theo, the series' likable, smart hero who hopes to be a lawyer like his parents, is in trouble. He's been accused in a robbery and must fight to clear his name. A simple story but, nevertheless, thrilling and a great introduction for the young reader to the legal world and issues of guilt, innocence and sifting through clues, innuendo and misdirection to find the truth.
