Student Saturday - Theodore Boone: The Abduction - John Grisham

Student Saturday is a day I post reviews written by other students.  The review that follows is written by Brady.

Theodore Boone is an 8th grader who wants to be a judge when he gets older. He has brown hair and is tall, and he also finds a quick way out of every situation. This is the second book in the series and is written by John Grisham and there are currently two books in the series. This book is based on Theodore’s best friend April who has gone missing. And at the same time, an escaped convict, also April’s cousin, is spotted in the town in which they live.

The book is very thrilling and exciting. I would recommend it if you like a story where there is a lot of excitement. You would like this very much. Also, if you like myster novels with many things that would make you change your mind about a subject or make you think the opposite of what’s the right answer.

Throughout the book I found compelling twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and guessing what was going to happen next. The book is set in a small town outside of Chicago. It is almost like the Percy Jackson books, but no violence and Gods and Goddesses.

The main idea in this story is that Theodore’s friend April is alone in her mom’s house, where the next morning, she finds that April has vanished and her favorite clothes are gone, with no alarms triggered, but no sign of April’s father. The police are stumped, and cannot find anything involved in the abduction.

Theodore immediately starts searching from his hometown, to all over the country to find April, and with the help of his uncle Ike, Theo finds a legal way through every situation. Overall, I loved this book series because it is Mysterious and exciting.
