" The Mysterious Benedict Society" by Trenton Lee Stewart
"Are you a Gifted Child looking for special opportunities?"
When this ad appears in the newspaper, many kids enroll to take the many mind-bending tests. However only 4 children are chosen. Reynie, Sticky,Kate and Constance are told to go on a secret mission that only intelligent and resourceful children will be able to complete. To suceed at this mission, they have to go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened. As they face both physical and mental challenges, their only option is to turn to each other for support. With their new friendship at stake, will they be able to pass the most important test of all?
This book has got to be one of the greatest books ever written. The reader is able to help solve the many riddles that the Mysterious Benedict Society solve. This book is exciting and was very hard to stop reading. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read puzzle books that force you to use your brain to solve the riddle. In my opinion, this book deserves a 5 out of 5 and is a must read for anyone.
