The Mysterious Benedict Society Paperback
When a peculiar advertisement appears in the newspaper for children to take part in a secret mission, children everywhere sit a series of mysterious tests.
In the end, just four children succeed: Reynie, Kate, Sticky and Constance.
They have three things in common: they are all honest, all remarkably talented and all orphans.
They must go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened where the only rule is that there are no rules.
There they must work as a team to save not only themselves, but also the world outside the walls.

Review by Neale
This started so well but the middle and ending were a huge disappointment. I thought at last a good kids story set in the real world, but the story lost its way and the plot was cumbersome.
Review by smg-gcollins
This book is really good for people who like adventure. I love the start of the book, how he is special and the tests that he has to do. The rules for the tests are so funny.
