    Theo is thrust into a no-win situation when an acquaintance confides that his cousin has incriminating evidence against the killer that is about to go free in the murder trial. But the cousin won't come forward because he is an illegal immigrant and fears that he will be deported and unable to support his family. Theo has been sworn to secrecy, and is torn between keeping his word to protect someone in need, and making sure that a criminal is brought to justice. This book may be best-suited for kids on the older end of the publisher's recommended age of 9-12 and younger teens -- it is heavy on description of criminal court procedure that may be difficult for younger readers to follow. The crime in question is a death via compression of the carotid artery. Theo also gives legal advice on a drug charge and a drunk driving arrest. Theo is never in true Grisham-style danger, though there is a menacing "body guard" type character that follows and spies on several people. There is a good age-appropriate lesson about the basic tenets of our judicial system, including the concept of presumed innocence.

    Middle School: Get me Out of Here! by James Patterson This book is about a boy who had just moved into the city when his mom lost her job due to a fire.Once he moved in, he is accepted into an art school and is amazed on going to this school. But, like his old school, he is getting picked on and is getting in trouble a lot because of revenge.Soon,he finds out about his father and that he was in the army but died.With many bullying and teasing about him, he runs away from home and is rescued by his mom. Will he ever survive middle school? I chose this book because it looked like a book from the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" or it looks like it. But, I chose this book anyway to read about his adventure. I read this book because it was like one of the books from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and that it was an interesting book. I would recommend this book to anyone who read the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and are interested in reading a book like the series.

    This is the newest book from Lemony Snicket. It's the first of four volumes that form the authorized autobiography of the author, titled "All the Wrong Questions", and act as a sort of prequel to A Series of Unfortunate Events. I say "sort of" because so far there's very little link between the two series but that's not to say there is no link at all. In this book 13 year old Lemony Snicket begins an apprenticeship to S. Theodora Markson, a woman who seems hopeless at solving the cases she's been hired for and never tells anyone what the S stands for. Snicket ends up in a town called Stain'd-by-the-sea which is a grim setting which works brilliantly. On arrival Snicket discovers a mystery involving a statue of a mythical beast and due to having a useless chaperone tries to solve this mystery himself. Fans of ASOUE will love this. It's written in the same witty and brilliant style and has the same sense of doom and depression. It's great to have a new Lemony Snicket book and I wonder if this series will answers some of the questions we've had for so long? But then again maybe that's the wrong question...
