Theodore Boone is the son of two lawyers, who together run a law firm called Boone & Boone. Being raised by lawyers rubbed off on Theodore, and he knows a lot about being a lawyer or judge. In fact, those are the two jobs that he wants to do when he grows up, but he can’t decide which one to choose. He often does lawyer-type things for his school friends, like going to animal court to get a dog back from the pound, or giving a friend advice for his parents. He also tutors some Mexican immigrants in Math and English. It is through these immigrants that he learns of some evidence that could affect the court case he has been following for the past few days or weeks. He has to secure the immigrants’ cousin (The one with the crucial evidence) a patron, so that he can legally become a citizen. When told of this, the judge on the case declares a mistrial, so that the next time, the new evidence can be used.

Reaction: I really liked this book, it was very easy to read, and gave an interesting point of view into our court system in the U.S. I had already read this book once before, and I liked it just as much as I did the first time.
