The ActivistBook - 2013
Theodore Boone, young lawyer, has had a lot to deal with in his thirteen years, everything from kidnapping to murder.
But he's come through it all and, with the law on his side, justice has always prevailed.
Sometimes, though, the law doesn't seem so just. His friend Hardie Quinn is about to have his family home bulldozed to make way for a bypass. Hardie is not the only one affected: other homes, businesses and schools lie in the path of the road. Theo has to tell his friend the bad news: for once, the law isn't on his side, and there's very little anyone can do to end the destruction.
Theo joins the campaign to stop the road. But when he stumbles on a terrible secret about the corrupt men behind the plan - a secret it is illegal for him to know - Theo must figure out how to keep the developers from breaking the law... without breaking it himself.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Building an extra four-lane highway across three soccer fields and an elementary school yard, seems to be a bad idea. Polluting the air with hazardous chemicals and gases, the idea of a bypass would be a great idea; at least to some people.
Theodore Boone didn't like the idea of this at all. Theodore thought that it would be a bad idea to pollute the air where many kids would be playing. for this reason, Theodore Boone was prepared to fight, although he didn't know what he was in for.
Theodore an his friends create a campaign that most of his schoolmates and families are involved in, hoping that this would help stop the bypass. Create a moving video and make safety masks. You would think that this would stop the bypass, but think again.
The people in favour will fight until they get what they want, but Theodore and his supporters will fight twice as hard, for what's right.
