Science teacher Robbin Huggins finished reading “The Guardians” in July.

“I love John Grisham,” Huggins said. “He writes a lot about Mississippi, Arkansas, and Memphis, and I grew up in Little Rock, so I love reading books about places that I know.”

“The Guardians” follows an exclusive group of attorneys representing Quincy Miller, a man in prison after being wrongfully convicted of murder. As this group fights to prove Quincy Miller’s innocence, they find themselves against a violent drug cartel.

“I chose it because I knew it would be good, and I knew it wouldn’t take me that long to read since I couldn’t put it down,” Huggins said.

Formerly a criminal defense lawyer, Grisham draws inspiration from real-life cases. He is known for his dozens of suspenseful thrillers. Some of his most famous include “A Time to Kill” and “The Firm.”

 “[I’d recommend it for] anybody that likes legal thrillers,” Huggins said.

“The Guardians” encourages readers to fight for what they believe in and find the truth in all situations.
