I really like this book. It was very interesting and quite cleverly funny. I was rooting for Kate the whole time. I felt so bad about her father and brother, but her grandfather was awesome. I really liked reading the chapters about the trials because both her and her grandfather were great. I really liked how the book ended. Although, I think that Rob Benson should have gotten in trouble with the law somehow because he was such a huge jerk. This book should be read.

It's the summer of 1973. Kate Hope is just your average 14-year-old girl. She's got school to deal with (though it's summertime). She's got a friend who's a boy who she's not quite sure if he's her boyfriend or not. And, oh yeah, she's a lawyer!

Her almost-blind grandfather has had Kate helping him in his law office for the past few years. With his failing eyesight, he's needed help with the reading and researching of his cases. And he found a loophole in Colorado's law that allowed Kate to sit for the bar exam. It wasn't easy, but she passed the exam, and is now a practicing lawyer. At least that's what her law license says.

Her grandfather still handles the trial work, but as his health comes and goes, Kate starts handling more of the responsibility. After he collapses and ends up in the hospital, Kate has to take a case to trial on her own. She's nervous and scared, but a dog's life or death depends on her. An elderly woman's dear pet is being blamed for an injury to a small child, but Kate and Miss Willow know Herman wouldn't intentionally hurt anyone!

THE TRIALS OF KATE HOPE is an amusing look at what the life of a teen girl would be like if she could actually practice law. There's so much that Kate has to learn about life yet, but her youthful take on things may just let innocent people (and dogs!) go free!

If I had a young daughter, I would buy this for her and all her friends. It's the story of how a young girl can develop courage -- even though the odds are against her and even though she's scared and still mourning her dad and brother, she decides to push her fear away to help someone who needs her. I thought it was wonderful!
