enjoyable for young and old.

What made the experience of listening to The Activist the most enjoyable?

My 9 year old loves this series. No sexual undertones or needs for parental worry. I can listen to it with her and find it enjoyable also. The dialogue about legal process is educating and appropriately written for children to understand. I recommend this series.

Best in the Series So Far

Any additional comments?

Theo Boone is a 13 year old kid of two lawyers who wants also to be a lawyer. He is disciplined, a good friend, smart, in pretty good communication with his parents who usually share their feelings and reasons with him, who often listen to his side of issues - but not always, so he has additionally learned discretion. As an early teen, he is learning his own code of ethics. In "Activist", Grisham nicely prepares the stage, and does not suddenly create a monster out of Theo,but gets his protagonist involved through very personal events: a friend's plight, and a painful incident involving his beloved mutt of mixed parentage, Judge. The story is very well developed, allowing Theo to develop his own viewpoint, through his exposure and experiences, and through talks with his renegade uncle, and friends. You can see his growing process, and because of this, and his innate
values of friendship, loyalty, and doing his own research, this book was my favorite. However, I still recommend beginning at the beginning; it's much more rich.
