Quid Pro Quo is a high-stakes, fast-moving legal thriller about real people, and funny people at that. Cyril MacIntyre's mother is a twenty-eight-year-old ex-street kid who drags her son to all her law school classes, then proceeds to get herself kidnapped. That aside, Cyril's life isn't too different from that of other thirteen-year-olds. He has all the usual adolescent issues to deal with: parent problems, self-esteem problems, skin, hair and girl problems. He just has legal problems too. And he's got to solve them if he wants to save his mother's life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Like It The plot line didn't really hold my interest, neither did the characters. For me, I wouldn't give this one a second read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saviour Grant's books have been a saviour. I have two somewhat reluctant readers who devoured all her books. If anyone has recommendations for similar reads please send them along!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Daughter loved this book My daughter, a prolific but fussy reader, has read this book yearly over the last several years, enjoying it at a different level each time. She read it first at 9 and now at 13 I noticed she's picked it up yet again. We've read aloud, as a family, another of Vicki Grant's books "the Puppet Wrangler" and all of us loved it's humour and clever story. WIsh more J books were this well written and smart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gripping book Quid Pro Quo is a book full of cliff hangers. I read this book in a lit circle and if I wasn't doing it in a lit circle I would of read the whole book in one night! The book is about a 13 year old boy whose mother gets kidnaped and he has to get her back. This book's cover may make you not want read , but hey don't judge a book by it's cover. If you haven't read this book you have to go to you're nearest book store or library and READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!

Read from the Book

I hated law school, but if I hadn't spent three years of my life there, I wouldn't have known anything about fraud, blackmail or the principle of equity. In other words, I wouldn't have known what I needed to know to save my mother's life.
