these books were so much more fun before i was old enough to actually be on a jury.

i do not look forward to tomorrow...


things i learned at jury duty today:

9 am means 930, and 330 means 345

the "computers" at jury duty are terrible

while non-asian court officers have zero difficulty pronouncing polysyllabic chinese and korean names, my two-syllable french name will cause endless variations and stumblings.

I don't know if I was ever good at these... but I enjoyed rereading them.

This book deserves 4 stars because it actually can help you like if you want to be with the court buisness. So i would recomend this book for 4th graders and higher. I think this would be a fun book to read for little kids to read because it will be a challenge to the little kids because they dont know what to do. So I would recommend my teacher to read this book because it will actually suit the teachers age because it will still be a challenge for them. They will give you proof of pictures an ...more

I really like choose your own story books/movies/anything. I also liked how this book put your eyes to work, and made you a real detective (kind of) by making you really examine the photos and the story to see if the suspect was guilty.

I loved these books SO VERY MUCH as a kid. They were the ones you could hardly ever borrow from the library because everyone wanted them.
HOW CAN I GET OVER THIS BOOK?!!!!! It was so good and I wanted to read the whole series but then i go to the library website and they say they don't even have one of them!!! I was instantly disappointed and wanted to move to a different city to be able to get this book. It has many more books in the series.

What I Liked: It had evidence so you could be investigating and they were all very realistic stories.
This fun book was recommended to me by my 10 year old cousin-a cutie! She said I'd like it and she was right! The premise is simple-the author presents a short court case and you must be the jury and weigh the evidence. I am a little concerned that there were a few I missed-but it was delightful. : ) Thank you, Leah!
This book is totally fantastic!
You get to read a crime, look at evidence, and solve it using the evidence from the story and pictures.
There are many cases inside one book, and they are all very different and fun.
Although, some are very tricky, I had a lot of fun with this book.
Think Encyclopedia Brown mysteries are hard? Try this! This book has ten different courtroom mysteries that you have to figure out. Stuck? Don't worry, the answers are in the book.

I think this is great for elementary school/early middle school AIS. Develop critical thinking skills and read for details. Easy reading level.

LOVED these books! It made me realize that it's in the best interest of our country never to have me be on one...
