Author John Grisham plans to write two young-adult novels for the Penguin Young Readers Group, the AP reports. The first novel will be titled Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer and will follow a “13-year-old amateur attorney who unwittingly becomes involved in a high-profile murder trial.” The book is due out in May, with a second novel also featuring the character planned for next year.
