Theodore Boone: The Abduction, written by John Grisham, is the second book in the Theodore Boone series. It is written for 11 to 13-year-olds.
It’s worth reading this series in order.
Grisham is such a good story teller, that I was convinced to stay with the plot. I was cheering for Theo.
His good friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night.
No one, not even Theo Boone – who knows April better than anyone – has answers.
As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it’s up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.

Theodore Boone: The Accused #3 is just as good.
Theo’s home town anxiously awaits the new trial of infamous murder suspect Pete Duffy.
There’s been a robbery and Theo is the accused. His reputation is on the line, and with the evidence building against him — and dangerous threats looming —Theo will do whatever it takes to prove his innocence–even if it means breaking a few rules.
It’s a page turner.
Theodore Boone: The Activist #4 is a longer book. The case more complex.
Theo is still age-13, but starting to grow up.
Small town Strattenburg is divided over a hot political and environmental issue — whether or not to build a $200 million freeway bypass while schools, police, fire, and all other town budgets are being cut.
Theo finds himself right in the thick of it … strongly opposed to the plans.
But when he uncovers corruption beneath the surface, no one—not even Theo—is prepared for the risks—and potential harm—at stake.
Torn between his conscience and the law, Theo will do whatever it takes to stand up for what is right.
The end of this book is the best single scene in the series so far.
