This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I loved this story. It was funny and face-paced and quirky. The title of each chapter is a legal term and it's definition, setting the reader up for what's coming up. Cyril is a resourceful young adult and manages to stay off the foster home radar while looking for his kidnapped mother who is a lawyer. Cyril knows quite a bit about law as he attended law school with his mom (no babysitter available) and helped her study for her tests. Now he uses his knowledge to search for her. Sometimes he goes above the law (or below it), but he gets things accomplished. It is fun and goofy and will having you cheering for Cyril and his friends. ( )

This was a fun read. Certainly, the first in a long while that I had trouble putting down. Cyril is a 13-year-old ersatz sleuth. His mother goes missing under mysterious circumstances, but thanks to having attended her law school classes with her, he's up to the challenge. With a delightful narrative voice, Vicki Grant has done an excellent job drawing wonderful engaging characters and making me care about them. ( )

QUID PRO QUO is a cute, fast-paced novel about Cyril, the somewhat clueless son of a plucky teenage mom. Through exposure to his mom's law studies, Cyril comes to think he has enough skills and knowledge to find his mother when she disappears. Cyril is not your typical amateur detective, but this lighthearted introduction to the genre will appeal to middle-grade readers: lots of comedy, a few "gross" moments, and a happy ending. Although the protagonist is thirteen, I'd recommend this book to readers who are eight to twelve. ( )

I received a free ARC of this book through the LTER give-away in exchange for my honest opinion. First off, I must have missed the fact that this book is considered a "young adult" book, which was quite a surprise. However, it was still an interesting concept to read how a "wimpy" teenage boy is using the knowledge he acquired by "attending" law school with his mother to get her out of a dangerous and confusing situation. I especially loved the headings of each chapter, which explained the meaning of many legal terms! ( )

I really enjoyed this story from Grant and will seek out more from her. Andy MacIntyre, a young single mother and former street kid, couldn't afford a sitter while she took night classes in law, so the young Cyril accompanied her, learning a lot about law in the process. Now, when she is 28 and he is 13 ("you do the math") she has disappeared after leaving an unusual voice message. He has to try to find her. Going to the police isn't an option because he would end up in foster care.

This humorous legal thriller aimed at 11-14 year-olds, was immediately irresistible. ( )
