By Guillermo García, 1º Bachillerato EFL
Rudy Baylor is an American student of law who wants to practice as a lawyer and is sent to a hospital where he meets the Blacks, a couple who are suffering because their son Donny has leukemia, and the insurance company refuses to pay the treatment. Rudy decides to help the family fighting against the company and taking it to the courts. Meanwhile, unfortunately, the boy dies. Rudy wants to sue the company but he has to face a great group of experimented lawyers and he hasn't even finished his studies. Finally Rudy manages to get rid of the company and make them pay a great compensation.
Nice book, especially if you want to get started with more difficult ones. Although the plot was interesting and mainly intense and exciting, some of the parts were very slow, with no action.
I would recommend this book for those who want to know what law is about.
