The Mysterious Benedict Society
Hola, The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. In this book, many children answer the call of an interesting news article asking for gifted kids. After going through three very strange tests only four children are left. Kate, an extraordinarily athletic girl; Constance, a very.... creative...? little girl,; Sticky, a speed-reader with a photographic memory (He is a boy); and Reynie, who is simply a problem solver. These kids are soon sent on a secret mission to infiltrate an evil school run by the malicious Mr. Curtain. Full of incredible characters and interesting problems The Mysterious Benedict Society is a truly great book for people looking for a new twist on the classic kid-spy story. Four stars!
