"Not since Nancy Drew has a nosy, crime-obsessed kid been so hard to resist." —The New York Times

Thirteen-year-old Theodore Boone thought the danger had passed, but he’s about to face off against an old adversary: accused mur­derer and fugitive Pete Duffy.

On a field trip to Washington, DC, Theo spots a familiar face on the Metro: Duffy, who jumped bail and was never seen again. Theo’s quick thinking helps bring Duffy back to Strattenburg to stand trial. But now that Duffy knows who he is, Theo is in greater danger than he’s ever been in before. Even when every­thing is on the line, Theodore Boone will stop at nothing to make sure a killer is brought to justice.

This smart, fast-paced legal thriller for young readers is the newest adventure for clever and determined kid lawyer Theo Boone.

                      Theodore Boone: The Fugitive is the 5th (and possibly the last) book in the amazing Theodore Boone series by John Grisham. It stars a boy named Theodore Boone, who is 13. Both his parents are lawyers, and this makes Theodore want to be one too. (Spoiler Alert if you haven’t read the first book) This book is mostly about Theodore tracking down the major antagonist of the first book (and debatably the whole series) and then proving him wrong in a court of law. I feel like this book is written well and is a page-turner, although not as much as the other books. I say this because this book does have its dull moments. In particular the end of this, which I’m not going to spoil, isn’t really that interesting, nor is it that climatic. In my opinion, this is something that the other books were good at, and I hope the next book (if there is another one) will improve in this aspect. Other than that, I feel that Theodore Boone: The Fugitive is a pretty good book, full of excitement and interesting facts on lawyers. This book gets a 4 out of 5 stars from me.
