Quid Pro Quo is a high-stakes, fast-moving legal thriller about real people, and funny people at that. Cyril MacIntyre's mother is a twenty-eight-year-old ex-street kid who drags her son to all her law school classes, then proceeds to get herself kidnapped. That aside, Cyril's life isn't too different from that of other thirteen-year-olds. He has all the usual adolescent issues to deal with: parent problems, self-esteem problems, skin, hair and girl problems. He just has legal problems too. And he's got to solve them if he wants to save his mother's life.

Review: Quid Pro Quo

User Review  - Wendy - Goodreads

I didn't mind this story, but found myself annoyed at the main character's overly dim responses to some of the clues in the story. I also thought the ending was to predictable, which is never a great way to end a book. Read full review
