Why Mummy Swears is the much anticipated new novel from Gill Sims, author of the hilarious Why Mummy Drinks and online sensation Peter and Jane. It’s every parents’ nightmare - the start of the school holidays - and instead of sitting in the sun, reading a book over a cold, crisp glass of Pinot Grigio, Mummy has two bored moppets to attend to. After frantically booking sports camps, child minder slots, not to mention time off work, Mummy is exhausted. But this is only the beginning....

Theodore Boone is 13 and wants nothing more than to swap homeroom for the courtroom; he lives for big trials. Now the biggest murder case in his city's history is set to begin. In the packed court, a husband awaits trial for his wife's murder. Is he a dangerous criminal or an innocent victim? The case takes a sinister twist when Theo uncovers a surprise witness with his own problems to hide. But Theodore is sworn to secrecy and time is running out.

Can Theo find a way to bring the killer to justice...or will a guilty man get away with murder?

Brimming with the intrigue and suspense that made John Grisham a number one international best-seller and the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

It is an easy listen.
It does remind me of other stories but still very enjoyable.
I have 2 boys and I will recommend the book to them.
The characters are very likeable.

The Element shows the vital need to enhance creativity and innovation by thinking differently about human resources and imagination. It is an essential strategy for transforming education, business, and communities to meet the challenges of living and succeeding in the 21st century.
