Zusatztext Contemporary lit for young readers has its icons: Harry Potter! Percy Jackson! Artemis Fowl. Make way for the new kid on the block. Informationen zum Autor John Grisham as a child dreamed of being a professional baseball player. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade, specialising in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. One day, Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl's father had murdered her assailants. Getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get in several hours of writing time before heading off to work, Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. His next novel, The Firm , spent 47 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list and became the bestselling novel of 1991. Since then, he has written one novel a year, including The Client, The Pelican Brief, The Rainmaker and The Runaway Jury . Today, Grisham has written a collection of stories, a work of non-fiction, three sports novels, seven kids' books, and many legal thrillers. His work has been translated into 45 languages. He lives near Charlottesville, Virginia. Klappentext Theodore Boone is a 13-year-old who knows more about the law than most adult lawyers and he certainly never expected to be the victim of crime himself. But when he is attacked whilst doing his homework, his bike is vandalised, and worst of all, he's framed for a robbery, Theo sets off on a race against time to find the real felon and clear his name in court. The latest high-intensity legal drama, following on from the bestselling "Theodore Boone" and "Theodore Boone: The Abduction". Zusammenfassung Innocence is not always the best defence.
