    1. Grisham returns with another 'Theo Boone: Child Lawyer' stories, sure to entertain the young reader as well as those who are young at heart. As high school is on the horizon, so begins the onerous task of eighth grade standardised testing, something that Theo cannot stand. After a rigourous week of testing and waiting for the results, Theo fails to make the cut for high school honor classes by a single point. Devastated, he and his best friend, April Finnemore, wallow in their own self-pity. Whe [...]

    2. Theodore Boone: The ScandalThis is the most enjoyable series, I look forward to every new book published. It was a cute and quick read. John Grisham is a wonderful adult fiction writer but an even better young adult writer. What a wonderful little series. Theodore Boone is an enjoyable character.

    3. My husband and I , both in our 60s, love the THEODORE BOONE series ! This one was as good as all the others - clever, amusing and heart-warming. The " kid lawyer" parts are hysterical- laugh-out-loud funny. This was a delightful,quick backporch read

    4. “Theodore Boone The Scandal”By, John Grisham ~Jude Pietrucha~ Right as I entered my School Media Center, I was scouting for the John Grisham book section, because I think his books were amazing. I managed to pick up, Theodore Boone The Scandal. When I finished reading the book, I thought it was marvelous! The book is about a scandal in Strattenburg, at East Middle school which gets taken to court! With all the dialogue in the courtroom, it played an special role in the story. I feel like as [...]

    5. Theodore Boone hasn’t ever been my favourite character nor have I ever felt that this was the best John Grisham can do. However, I have to admit that this is the first book in this series that I actually enjoyed reading thoroughly.Theodore Boone may be a whiz kid and have a number of connections in the judicial world, but even he cannot escape the standardized tests no matter how much he dislikes them. Not only does he have to take the tests, but these tests also determine if he can take honor [...]

    6. If you haven't read this, my review will make no sense. If you want a summary, read someone else's.Um. WHAT HAPPENED TO THEO!!???? Since when does he refuse to do something if something wrong happened? Theo, you just can't help getting into the middle of everything, ok? It. Is. Your. Job. As a kid lawyer. You're supposed to make sure rules are followed. Not stand by, do nothing, and try to make your best friend do nothing, too! Speaking of that, what happened to April? She didn't have anything t [...]

    7. Absolutely awful. The writing is atrocious. The dialogue is wooden and the entire story is boring. There's no grit in the story, no reason to believe it. Teens will find it dull and far below their level of sophistication and vocabulary. I could not like the main character because the story is so flawed. Glaring examples of the author's lack of knowledge about middle-schoolers included a pair public school boys shaking hands and going to class after a frank discussion about the dysfunctional fam [...]

    8. It’s the time every elementary and middle school student dreads, standardized testing time. Theo is in eighth grade, and this test now decides what courses he will be able to take in high school. He is very tired of testing all week, and is relieved when his boy scout troop offers a camping trip for all of its eighth grade members. After he returns, he has a frozen yogurt with his good friend April, and they discuss their test scores. They are disappointed that they both missed honors classes [...]

    9. "The Scandal" is a fictional mystery novel following the life of Theodore Boone, a thirteen year old kid who is known around town as "kid lawyer" because of his knowledge of law and court. During his 8th grade end of the year exams, East High School takes a dramatic rise in test scores since the previous year and the town's suspicions rise. As Theo and his two lawyer parents get involved in the case, Theo's future in school hangs in the balance.I liked this book mostly because of the non stop co [...]

    10. A different theme to John Grisham's writing. The series describes a 13 year old boy who's parents are lawyers and his desire is to become one as well. Describes school's standardized testing and what occurred in scoring those tests. Not that much of a plot, but did leave me tired for all the activity this kid did.

    11. While I did enjoy the book, found it to be one long soapbox against standardized testing. His viewpoint didn't annoy, just got to be a little preachy and got me to feeling like come on, just move on, we get it, you don't like standardized testing of children!

    12. I love this series! “Teddy,” as his mother calls him in private moments, never shrinks from the big questions nor does his loyalty sway at all. He is 1000% devoted to his family and friends!

    13. "Скандалът" приключи.Или аз приключих със "Скандалът" - може да се каже и по двата начина. И макар че като цяло ми хареса, май за пръв път ще изразя по-критично мнение от обикновено за книга на Гришам.Нека започна с хубавото. От години Гришам е сред любимите ми автори, чета го с у [...]

    14. John Grisham apparently wants his juvenile readers to live in a bubble filled with unicorns and pretty flowers. In "The Scandal," Theodore Boone's perfect little world is rocked by a standardized test cheating scandal. The scandal affects Theo directly, so of course, he is heavily involved in every aspect of the case, including helping the judge to determine his final verdict. How's that for realism? There's a side issue with one of Theo's classmates who has a drunken, abusive father. No messy r [...]

    15. Okay so for ONCE I'm giving this a straight 4 star review. Still not quite my favorite writing style from Grisham but it was one that had good questions and different opinions raised about the scandal in the story and the outcome of it. I did like how he captured teenage boys and testing perfectly like for instance. of Theo's friends purposely missed most of the questions so he could be in the lower level and stay under the radar in high school and when he got his test scores results, let's just [...]

    16. This is the only book that I have read of the series which Grisham has written for younger readers. I was particular drawn to this one, since it deals with teachers who cheated on their students' results on standardised tests. Standardised tests are controversial, and I was curious how the issue would be treated. I am sure that I would've loved this book and probably the whole series as a young reader. Recommend.

    17. I'm a big fan of Theodore Boone, the kid lawyer! This was a simple book, and Grisham goes over the characteristics of Theo, or Teddy, as his mom calls him, so it's a repeat of some of the information from the previous 4 Kid Lawyer books. But even so, I love having a smart, respectful, regular kid be the hero of a story. He's just a nice kid who you'd like to have in your own family. The conclusion is a fair one, and I can't wait for another story in this series.

    18. I had no idea this was a YA book series about a kid lawyer, so I grabbed it from my local library. It was a good read. Theodore Boone reminds me of one of my favorite kid detectives, Encyclopedia Brown. If you have a young reader who likes legal thrillers, this is a perfect series to start them on. Not scary, no bad language, and twists they can follow.

    19. This book is so boring. It's meandering with shallow characters. Grisham should stick to writing grown-up books. The premise is a good one though. Maybe a different author could have done it justice.

    20. I like reading up on Theodore, he's airways into something, but I would prefer more character development of April, & his folks. His parents are still so much the same, not a lot into their stories, plus the arguments are getting repetitive.

    21. Theo is truly a amazing young man. He is always helpful to his friends and classmates. The way he gets along with the judge and police officers is really special. You won't be able to stop reading this book.

    22. Outstanding ReadingI cannot lay this book down. Great story. I will make sure that I read each and every one. Thanks John Grisham.

    23. Theodore Boone: the Scandal • by John Grisham (Book, #6) summary The story hinges on standardized testing in middle-grade schools, a matter of contemporary controversy. Teachers in a local middle school have been accused of cheating on the test, and Theodore Boone becomes involved. As he and his eighth-grade classmates are also being tested, the fairness of the test is of particular concern to him.Thirteen-year-old Theodore Boone is not an attorney, but he does have an office to call his own, [...]

    24. In the book “Theodore Boone: The Scandal,” the genre was mystery. We did not know what was going to happen, and when it seemed like they had finished solving everything, something else happened! The first main character was Theo. Theo was a very adventurous character who had dreams of becoming a lawyer. The next main character was April. April belonged to a strange family who didn't spend time with her. She was the one who started the drama in the story. The last main character was the Judge [...]

    25. I recently read, Theodore Boone the Scandal, by John Grisham. Theodore is not looking forward to the following week. He is dreading that week completely, because it is standardized testing. First of all, he thinks that it is stupid to do those kinds of testings because you can't just rank people based on how good you take the tests. However, he has to get into the honors track if he wants to become a lawyer someday. On his way to school April, his friend, has some very interesting news. A relati [...]

    26. Teaching to the Test or Teaching to Learn It is that time of year where kids are having to take tests to prove that they are learning something, but some schools are failing. They are failing because they have a higher concentration of immigrant families or one parent families or they have a harder time with the work than other kids. The teachers at one such school didn't want their kids punished for not being in a nicer neighborhood or have two parents who can help them with their work or paren [...]

    27. Title: Theodore Boone, The ScandalAuthor: John GrishamGenre: Mystery.Rating: 7.5/10Age: 8 - 12, Childrens.Notes: Book 6 in the Theodore Boone Series, however I started from book 6 and it was still quite easy to follow.Summary Theodore Boone is not your average 13 year old. He knows probably most of the lawyers in his city, and he definitely knows more about law suit then some adults. However as the standardised tests come up in school, the pressure to do well hits everybody. And when the superin [...]

    28. I have to give Grisham four stars for tackling the subject of standardized tests, which I hate, loathe, and despise. In his latest (and apparently last in the series) Theodore Boone novel, Theo has to not only deal with standardized testing (lucky kid, to not have to deal with them before 8th grade) but also the scandal of teachers from impoverished school districts cheating, or at least accused of cheating. Grisham does a great job of keeping us reading. The biggest lament I have is that he is, [...]

    29. The Boone family is a little too perfect for my tastes (lawyer parents, want-to-be-lawyer only child who is overly wise when it comes to giving advice to other kids, member of the Boy Scouts, church on Sunday, serving at the soup kitchen every Tuesday, etc.). I think middle schoolers will look past all this, though, especially since Theo does a few not-so-perfect things. His parents agree to represent five teachers who altered standardized test scores at their school and were arrested. His paren [...]
