I thought my 9-yr old would like this, based upon reviews. She loves Nancy Drew, which features an 18-yr old. But not only is this a really tedious read, I had to give up reading it at the description of the murder about 5 chapters in (pp60-61). Too graphic (references to the effect of occluding the carotid artery in the prosecution's opening statement). Horrible. The mentioning of "no history of drug abuse" should also not be aimed at children. My daughter had already given up during chapter one, but I said "it will get better and more interesting". I was wrong for page after page of irrelevant page-filling detail. Grisham is full of himself in adult fiction, which I actually quite like, but this is not suitable for younger children despite what some reviewers say. Murder is not a nice crime with which to begin a series. Legal stuff is really quite boring. Enough said.
