From NPR by the NPR Staff – June 4, 2010

Bestselling author John Grisham has written another legal thriller — and this one is for kids.
Grisham has 24 books under his belt, many of which were turned into movies, including The Pelican Brief and A Time To Kill. But he says writing for a young audience created a special challenge, mostly because he didn’t want to underestimate their abilities.
“It’s not necessarily any easier than adult fiction,” Grisham tells NPR‘s Michele Norris. “It’s easier in that it’s shorter; the plot is not nearly as complicated.

“But the biggest challenge I found was the ability to try to tell the story without talking down to kids. Because I think that’s what a lot of writers do and they don’t like it. Kids don’t like it. They want you to treat them as your equal and tell them the story.” more>
