When his best friend April disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone—who knows April better than anyone—has answers.

As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it’s up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save his best friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended A great series for any age.
Date published: 2012-04-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exciting Mystery Thriller for Kids I have read John Grisham novels in the past and enjoyed them and so was excited to read this middle school novel - I was not disappointed, this is an exciting, intreguing read for kids. The beginning immediately draws the reader in when Theo's friend April has been abducted. There is a kind of tough talking detective feel to the book, a bit abrubt and edgy. At the same time, Grisham makes the reader feel for April and her plight and want her rescued, as well as feeling total sympathy for Theo in his plight to find his friend. Theo is a fun character who will appeal to kids who like smart dectective novels. He has a passion for the law which is contageous and keeps the reader turning the pages to watch him figure out what happened to his friend. There are times when the book is a little repetative, but overall, it is well written and kids who like mystery, solving puzzles and suspense will really enjoy this series of books. Grisham successfully combines the mystery solving Nancy Drew type story with a kid friendly legal thriller.
