While it was a hugely anticlimactic book, I actually still liked the story. Grisham is a legal genius after all, and does a fantastic job of describing and explaining every aspect of an exciting murder trial to his young audience. Theo is rather endearing and I enjoy his character immensely, as well as those around him. The story doesn’t have a climax, and it sort of just ends…(perhaps it continues somewhat in the next books?) but it’s a great book for kids, especially those ones that are watching “Perry Mason” reruns in their spare time (Theo’s favorite show). Overall, I would recommend it.
