Character Analysis Answer
The main character Theodore is a smart, caring, and out-spoken kid in the story. Theo is motivated by his parents which are lawyers, the judge Henry Gantry, and his history teacher Mr.Mount to solve this case and become a lawyer also. I like the main character because he's always there to help out a friend and will assist you with if anything is wrong. The relationship between Theo and April is very close friends in the story.
The theme of this novel is to keep believing and be confident in what you want to do. One example that supports the theme is: Theo strongly believes Mr. Duffy is guilty of the crime. Another example is: The jury including Theo has a lot of evidence the Mr. Duffy killed he's wife. A third example from the book is: Theo is very confident by finding reasons why he feels the way he do. A final example that supports theme is: The trial of Mr. Duffy case was never finished but Theo might change the ending.
The book "Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer" I will rate a 7 because I like what I've read so far but now the trial is going and the judge didn't make a decision yet. The connection I made to this novel is yes teens can relate to this book because everyone has a dream that they will do anything to achieve it. However, Theo paid more attention in history class and spends a lot of time in his parents office to become a lawyer in the future.
