Theodore Boone: The Abduction, written by John Grisham, is the second book in the Theodore Boone series. It is written for 11-13 year-olds. (Some strong content in this book)


Theodore Boone is perplexed when his 13 year-old best friend, April Finnemore, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night. No one, not even Theo—who knows April better than his small hometown, the police continue to hit dead-ends. The police think April could have been kidnapped by a distant cousin of the Finnemore family, Jack Leeper, who escaped from prison a few days before April went missing. It is up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.
