While those books still appeal to young readers today, there’s a new kid on the block: John Grisham’s Theodore Boone, kid lawyer. In his latest caper, The  Activist, Theodore digs deeper into his town’s heated political battle over environmental issues and uncovers corruption that could change everything. The kid lawyer won’t stop until justice is served.

 

I hope this smartly-told page-turner will bring the same enjoyment to young readers this summer that my favorite series brought to me.

I definitely remember reading Encyclopedia Brown, as well as Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon.  I hope today's young generation will enjoy the Grisham series as much as I treasured those series from my childhood.
