Sixteen-year-old Noah is a troublemaker.
His father is a hotshot barrister.
This is not a good combination.
When Noah gets caught mucking up at school, his dad sends him to work at his aunt's law firm during the holidays to 'learn responsibility' and 'fix his attitude'.
There he meets Jacinta – the cute intern who knows her way around a photocopier, and Casey – the wicked wit...more

I had the pleasure of attending a book launch by this young lady in Hobart recently, and what an accomplished person she is! A leading light in her community, she is also an author in the young adult and new adult fiction areas, as well as a practicing lawyer.

Noah is a troublemaker, and when he gets caught red handed at school, his dad sends him to law school.
Here Noah is stuck photocopying law sheets, when he takes a sudden interest in a case...
This is a great book with smart jokes, mostly believable characters, and a great mystery.
Recommended for YA fans and people studying for law school.
I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. They were realistic and very interesting. I liked the development of the character Noah. He starts of being quite immature, though throughout the book and its events, he realises what matters in life.
