Book 3 in the thrilling young mystery series from internationally bestselling author John Grisham
Big trouble is brewing for Theodore Boone. While all of Streenburg anxiously awaits the new trial of infamous murder suspect Pete Duffy, problems arise for their own kid lawyer. There’s been a robbery and Theo is the accused. His reputation is on the line, and with the evidence building against him–and dangerous threats looming–Theo will do whatever it takes to prove his innocence–even if it means breaking a few rules. Filled with the intrigue and page-turning suspense that made John Grisham a #1 international bestseller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller, Theodore Boone’s adventures will keep readers enthralled until the very last page.
From School Library Journal Gr 6-8-Theodore Boone is being stalked. His lawyer parents are involved in a high-profile case. On the last day of the trial, Theo discovers that his locker has been broken into. Later that day, one of his bike tires is slashed. As if things couldn’t get any worse, the 13-year-old becomes the main suspect after a local store is robbed and computers are found in his locker. With the help of his uncle, Theo uses his investigative skills to determine who is behind these crimes. This third book (Dutton, 2012) in John Grisham’s series is suspenseful and sprinkled with humor, but at times the text sounds more like a lesson in the practice of law. The characters are endearing, and listeners will cheer for Theo. Narrator Richard Thomas does a wonderful job of engaging listeners throughout, using intonation to create emotions and suspense. Although part of the series, this title can stand alone and would be a good choice for middle school boys who enjoy mysteries.-Lyn Gebhard, Sparta Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.

⭐ Imagine being called to the Pricipal’s Office on a Wednesday Morning… Imagime finding a DETECTIVE there, from the lacal cop shop. Imagine having the detective escort you to your locker, and having the principal open your locker, only to find 3 Linx 0-4 Tablets there. Products of the burglery of the Computer store the previous night. To make matters worse, there is someone who is followinf Theo around wirth a small knife, destroying his bike tires. You will NOT beleive who the culprits are, and you will not know until the end of the story.The 4th book (not bought here but available) is called ‘The Activist’. Story on a par with the first three. Theo, along with his friends, and a large part of the elementary school, manage to overcome a LARGE political force. What they do, and how they DO it is page-turning enjoyment!Theodore Boone, his parents, his DOG (Judge) and his friends are unbeatable. Good people, ding the right thing. Put them all together,and WOW!!!! I can’t wait for the following editions! I don’t recall waiting for ‘new ones’ of anything like this since I was about10! Will they catch Pete Duffy? I hope so! (He runs away in the second book.) (he was out on bail, didn’t show up for the new trial)
⭐ I had just finished reading a couple of John Grisham books, Sycamore Row and Gray Mountain, with mixed opinions of each. This book came up as a suggested one on my Kindle. After reading the first chapter I realized I had entered into Grisham’s YA fiction. The Accused is not Grisham’s first Theodore Boone, but this did not make it difficult to catch on. From the perspective of a YA work, it was an enjoyable read. Theodore is a 13 year old and the only child of two lawyers in a small town. He is an aspiring attorney that represents eccentric folk in the town’s animal court where disputes are brought over pets and livestock and anyone can either represent themselves or another person.This book involves Theodore’s involvement in a crime that he did not commit but someone is attempting to frame him for it. It’s an enjoyable story with colorful characters such as Theo’s Uncle Ike, a disbarred lawyer, who helps him investigate the crime.Overall, the book was enjoyable. Much like Harlan Coben’s Mickey Bolitar YA series, this book has a main character that is wise beyond his years and maybe a little too perfect. Theo is bookish and aspires to be a lawyer, yet is popular in school. Perhaps having a more realistic reaction to his nature in the school setting might make this book and the series just a bit more believable. I’m going to go back and give the first Theodore Boone book a try.
⭐ Intrigue, suspense, eclectic characters, and evokes emotions are the four characteristics of this novel. The ending is very surprising. I didn’t start to figure out the guilty until the last 10% of the book. Then the intrigue became, how are they going to get them. The characters are endearing, funny, and a Hodge podge of personalities. I finished the book fast for me because I enjoyed it that much. This is the third book in this series and I’m just as interested in the series as I was when the first book came out.
⭐ I was first introduced to Theodore Boone when I purchased “Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer” by mistake. I am a 52 year-old woman and typically do not read children’s books. I purchased the book because I read everything written by John Grisham and did not realize it was written for kids. I decided not return the book and read it instead. I was so glad of my order error and purposely ordered the next two books in the series. I immediately fell in love with Theo, his friends and his quirky family. I love Judge the dog and how important he is to Theo and vice versa.The third installment in the series did not disappoint. We find Theo is in the unique position of having to defend himself as he is the accused. Many of the same characters from previous tales return, such as his uncle Ike. They feel familiar and it is nice to catch up with them. My favorite part of the book is when Theo defends Miss Petunia in Animal Court. It’s fun that the “judge” asks Theo what the laws are. I was a tad disappointed that the mystery regarding a woman’s murder has yet to be solved.I love the way Theo respects adults but his thoughts revel his intelligence in how he wants to respond to adults, but out of respects holds his tongue. He is a very likable kid and it is nice that he doesn’t have total disdain for all adults. He has several role models and has parents who love him and allow him to be a kid while training him to be a good person and responsible adult. I think this provides lessons for kids who read the books. His exploits are fun for me and I know kids would enjoy them as well.I highly recommend this book for kids and adults as well. If I had children, I think if would be nice to read them together and have discussions about lessons learned from Theo’s adventures.
⭐ These books, there are six so far .. are for people way younger than I am .. that said .. who doesn’t like a 13 year old lawyer who can solve anything .. who is kind and decent and fun … perfect books for pre-teens and teenagers … The books are just fun to read .. a nice diversion to most of what I read .. to encourage reading these books would be a perfect birthday or Christmas present …
⭐ Theodore Boone is in trouble. Someone is causing harm, which falsely seems to be his fault. He has to find out who is willing to causing him harm, and why? Inttelligent deduction finds who is his secret enemy. Maybe too fast and simple end.
⭐ Grisham doesn’t disappoint. He can write for young adults as well as his always popular books for adult readers. “Teddy” Boone is an only child of lawyer/parents, and like many only children, he is very mature for his age and is looked up to by his peers as well as kids his own age. In this book, he is accused of a crime he didn’t commit (he is the prime suspect by the polie) and he has to figure out who is framing him (why would someone frame a 13 year old with no known enemies?). With the help of his uncle, a former lawyer who has been disbarred, they manage to bring the culprit(s) to justice. There are also 2 other Boone books in this series; I recommend all of them – you do not have to read them in any special order; each one stands alone. Finally, this is a great book, written by a great author, for readers of all ages. Happy reading!
⭐ Great story. Particularly enjoyed the defense of the spitting Llama in Animal Court. Well written, got a few chuckles. Recommended for those young people confined to home during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as all who enjoy good literature.
⭐ I have always been a fan of John Grisham and read every word the man has written. My grandson is a voracious reader and alsothe son of a lawyer. I was delighted to discover the Theo Boone series which I bought for him and which both he and I really enjoy.The novel has the usual lawyerly narrative, but the characters are young and the crime less grisly. No dead bodies, no one gets naked.There is still a fair degree of suspense, but on a level more appropriate to a young adult. I hope one day my boys will want to read allGrisham’s novels. I’ll let them begin with Playing for Pizza.
⭐ Not yet a John Grisham fan, I was introduced to Theodore Boone by a younger friend and have now read three. I have recommended them to my ten year old grandson and I’m sure he will enjoy them.I review some newly published books for children and young adults each month so have read quite widely in a number of different genres and feel that these books tick all the boxes for the young teen reader with a serious outlook.Theodore is a thoughtful only child, considerate, understanding the world his parents are part of and working hard to understand all aspects of his own world. He is also a fun kid who gets into and out of the sorts of scraps other kids encounter.Bullying, separations and divorces, feeling trapped by forces beyond one’s control, are major focuses here. But Theodore has sufficient insight to know which adults are on his side and trustworthy. He has attributes worthy of being modeled by others.
