Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer, known as Theodore Boone: Young Lawyer in the UK, is a 2010 legal thriller and the first novel by John Grisham for middle grade children (8-13 year olds).[1] It is the first in a series about Theodore Boone. Grisham jokingly said in an interview that he wanted to catch up with Harry Potter, since his number one place was taken in the bestsellers.[2]

The book centres on the murder of Myra Duffy. Her husband, Pete Duffy is on trial for murdering her as they had million dollar life insurances. Theo knows an illegal immigrant who knows the truth, but he is too scared to come forward in case of being arrested.
