Overview

Trial by Journal by Klise

Get ready for a trial unlike any Tyle County has ever seen. Sixth-grader Perry Keet is missing, and Bob White, his co-worker at Tyle Park Zoo, will stand trial for the alleged murder. But Keet's disappearance is only the beginning of this legal thriller.

The real story is told by twelve-year-old Lily Watson, a classmate of Keet's. Watson was selected to White's jury because of a new law requiring a juvenile juror to serve if the case involves a child victim.

Part of Watson's duty will be to listen objectively to the testimony of Tyleville's wealthiest citizen, Rhett Tyle. His testimony is expected to be the key to White's conviction.

White's fate now rests in the hands of Watson and fellow jurors Fawn Papillon, Anna Conda, and other Tyleville locals, as they try to uncover the truth before it's too late!

The book "Trail by Journal" by Kate Klise was a very good book. An old man named Bob White was on trial for the murder of Perry Kett. Perry was a young 12 year old boy who worked at the zoo with Bob. According to the new Missouri State Law since Perry was only 12 there must also be a juvenile juror on the jury in this case. Lily Watson was chosen to be the juvenile jury in this case. She was in the same class as Perry but never really knew him. Because she missed so much school she would have to keep a journal through the time she was at the trial. Her teacher told her to put all of her feelings and thoughts into the journal. Well let me just say she sure did! This trial will be like no other Missouri has ever seen. It will be turned upside down and all around trying to uncover new clues. But while this is going on there is the complete opposite, Bob White the quite old man writes in his journal about making good friends with the rats in his jail cell. There are articles from the local paper including one section from one of the juror that is on the jury. I found this section personally one of the best parts. He tells you about the trail and some of the friends he makes with the other jurors. This book will have you laughing for hours! I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone! The grade level is about 5th or 6th grade, but people older still should take a look because it s a great book. Anyone one looking for a good light hearted book should read this book, "Trial by Journal".

Me and my friend both read this book and loved it. the letters and other things where the best. Every time I would pick up the book to read it I would say only one chapter but since this book is so suspending I ended up reading about 3 to 4 chapters at a time. I loved this book!!

Trial by Journal is one of the best books I've ever read. If there is one book that I would read more than once, Trial by Journal would be it. I can't believe that Kate Klise is an adult. Any kid who half-way likes to read would love this book. My parents have even read it, and they love it! It's basically a funny collage of fake newspapers, the villain's evil notes to the other one, outfit orders, etc!

This book is great! I couldn't put it down. It took my 4 hours to read and I read it without stopping! It is a great book that mystery and journal lovers will love. Kate Klise has done a wonderful job! Lilly Watson, Juvinille Jusrist is out of school on jury duty... it's a murder case of one of her classmates! Her teacher tells her to write a journal but little does she now she will have to write the truth and nothing but the truth. I enjoyed the style it was written in. Kate Klise {author} has connected a journal with evidense... newspaper clippings, letters even has parts of a jury members autobiography!

This book is about a girl who goes on jury duty for a murder trial. Being out of school was her dream, but writing journal entries for each day for her teacher to tell about the trial was not on her list!This wonderful book is funny and has twists and turns along the way!Trying to be a detective she finds out something nobody knows...Kate Klise has a extraordinary way to write though journal entries, newspaper clippings, news stations, and secret letters. I definatly recommend this book to kids and adults. A must read!!

This is one of the best books I've ever read. The age range is 8-11, but I'm older and I still loved it! I would definitly recommend this book to anyone. It's great the way that the story is told with newspaper clippings, letters, and diary entries. Lily is so funny!

I thought that this book was fantastic!! It was a page-turner and it really kept your interest. It was NOT one of the types of books that you start but never finished. This is definitely one of my favorite books!!

This book was a very excellent book. Except there were too many things with the word 'Tyle'. What's the deal with that?! But besides that fact, it is a must read.
