Theodore Boone: The Fugitive: Theodore Boone: John Grisham review

Theodore Boone: The Fugitive: Theodore Boone 

By: John Grisham
Rating: 3 Star

I didn't initially realise until recently that John Grisham had a new series of books aimed at a young adult audience.

When I first started reading The Fugitive though, I could immediately tell that it had been written for a totally different audience than 'A Time to Kill'.

Earworm: A Novel about the Music Industry

By: Sean McManus
Rating: 4 Star

Simon and Fred are working hard to make it big with their band -they just need a way to get recognised by the music industry and make their name known.

However, music buying patterns have changed, and the small record labels have all been bought up by Bigg records. This means that the chances of Simon and Fred 'making it' are getting slimmer all of the time.
