Theodore Boone Kid Lawyer

Grisham, John
Teen Theo's parents are lawyers and his goal is to be a lawyer, too. Or a judge. A rather serious young man, still he gets along well with his peers. I feel a sequel, as nothing is resolved in this episode.

Quote:

Humorous Quote #1:
"Can you cough again for us, Teddy?" his mother asked. (pg. 93)

Humorous Quote #2:
"I'd rather not go to jail," Theo said. (pg. 185)
"I really don't want to go to jail," Theo said. (pg. 186)

The Million Dollar Putt

Gutman, Dan

Quote:

I sure wouldn't want to have asthma. I think I would worry all the time about when my next attack would come. At least blindness is something you can count on every day.
