Theodore Boone: The Fugitive

(3) 4-6 In the fifth Theodore Boone book, Theo spots accused murderer Pete Duffy during a school trip in Washington, DC, leading to the fugitive's capture and murder trial. Unless Theo can convince the prosecution's star witness to testify, Duffy may go free--and this kid lawyer won't accept that outcome. This middle-grade courtroom drama's draw is Grisham's trademark suspenseful pacing.
