Just like The Firm, but rated G, and set twenty years later...

Okay, I'd heard of this novel, but with a title like Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer I seriously thought it was a joke. But it turns out that A) it's a real book (international best-seller John Grisham's first attempt at writing for young readers), B) it's out in bookstores now, and C) Grisham's publisher is sufficiently excited about it do a one-million-copy first printing.

Still, one has to wonder how well this sucker is going to sell. A book with a title and cover like that one seems unlikely to have a lot of crossover appeal with adult readers, and how many of today's kids have heard of John Grisham?
