Decent Essays

John Grisham’s third book “The Accused” finds a clever eighth grader attending a trial for a man accused of killing his wife. Theodore Boone, the main character, gets the last available seat only to learn that the suspect has run away. On the day of the trial, Theo realizes that his locker has been burglarized, with inhalers, a Twins baseball cap and some notebooks stolen, and later finds his bike tire slashed. After boy scouts the next day, his tire is slashed again. Theo suspects the vandal is another student, but can’t think of anyone who hates him that much. That night, a computer store is robbed. Several expensive laptops, smart phones and more are stolen. At school the next day, Theo is paged into the office and questioned about the robbery.
