John Grisham as a child dreamed to be a professional baseball player. Then he realized that he didn’t have the stuff for a pro career. He went to Mississippi State University and he became a lawyer. He lives on a farm in Mississippi with his wife Renee and his two children Ty and Shea.
The Activist
By John Grisham

The Activist takes place in a town called
Strattenburg. Strattenburg has alout of
traffic so there is going to be a bypass.
A bypass is a road or highway that avoids or bypasses a built-up area, town, or village, to let through traffic flow without interference from local traffic, to reduce congestion in the built-up area, and to improve road safety. Some people don't want the
bypass because it will go throught homes and right by schools.
Theo's friend Hardie has a family that owns a farm that the family
has been living in for more than 100 years. It has 1oo acres it has
fishing ponds, rapids for canoeing, and fields to play on. The problem is that the bypass's goes ontop of his grandparents
house.


Life is
good
The Activist is a realistic fiction novel in the Theodore Boone series written by
John Grisham
The main character in The Activist is Theodore Boone. Theo like to help people. Theo is a kid lawyer who loves law.
John Grisham’s first book was A Time To Kill. He published it in 1988. He has written 23 best sellers. He published his first young adult book Kid Lawyer in 2010. The Activist is the fourth and most recent book in the series.
The book is about a boy named
Theodore Boone who is a kid lawyer and
helps his friends with legal advice. His friend Hardie’s grandparents live out on a farm and they have 100 acres of land. There are rapids for canoeing, ponds for fishing, and fields to play on and more. There is a bypass that some people want and some people don’t want. The bypass is going to run right through the Hardie’s family farm that their family has been living in
for more than 100 years.
The setting is a town called Strattenburg in the present time
The main character
is Theo. He has a love for law
and he is caring and helpful. Both
of his parents are lawyers. His father
is a real estate lawyer and his mother is a divorce lawyer . His father’s brother Ike used to work with Theo’s dad. Ike gives Theo news about
what’s happening around Strattenburg. Theo visits Ike
every Monday
after school.
The largest conflict of the story is the debate about having a bypass or not.
You should read this
book because it is a
great story about how
Theo helps his town
If the bypass
is built the government
will make a buck off of it, it
will let truckers get to their
destinations faster, and Strattenburg would have less traffic. But, it will run right through farms like the
Quimby’s, it will go right past the
school, and it will go right
through the soccer
fields .
