Hmmm. This is interesting. Today's announcement from Publisher's Weekly says John Grisham will be writing a legal thriller for middle graders, a whole bunch of them, it seems. How'd I miss this?
The middle-grade series will focus on 13-year-old Theodore Boone, a legal whiz kid. In the first book, Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer, Theo gets caught up in a high-profile murder trial in his town. It's scheduled to be released by Dutton Children's Books on May 25.
