Theodore Boone – The Abdution – 4

Theodore Boone – The Abdution – By John Grisham – I am such a fan of John Grisham. I was thrilled when his first children’s book came out. I was beside myself when I saw this second one. John Grisham is hooking his readers at an even earlier age. This book is about Theodore Boone searching for his friend April, who is missing. April’s mom, May, calls Theodore asking questions about April. The police get involved. A distant relative of May’s has escaped prison and has been scene in the area. The police jump at the idea that April was taken by this Jack fellow. Theodore and some others students decide to go out on their own and search for April. In a few days this Jack is found and arrested. He says he knows where April is and wants to make a deal with the police. Ike, Theodore’s uncle, thinks that April’s dad needs to be investigated. Theodore and a friend, Chase, start trying to locate the band her dad plays with. They find some pictures posted on facebook, and Theodore is convinced April is in one of the photos. Theodore gets his uncle to drive him to the band;s next gig to rescue April. Theodore is worried, but he gets a lucky break because April is with her dad. Theodore and Ike take April home with them. Both parents are given strict guidelines on how they are to continue if they want to keep April. Great story. I can’t wait until his next book in this series.
