Book Review: The Mysterious Benedict Society

Summary: "Are you a gifted child looking for special opportunities?" 
  Dozens of children respond to this peculiar ad in the newspaper and are then put through a series of mind-bending tests, which readers take along with them. Only four children-two boys and two girls-succeed. Their challenge: to go on a secret mission that only the most intelligent and inventive children could complete. To accomplish it they will have to go undercover at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, where the only rule is that there are no rules. But what they'll find in the hidden underground tunnels of the school is more than your average school supplies. So, if you're gifted, creative, or happen to know Morse Code, they could probably use your help.

Thoughts: This was a really adorable book! I mean it had suspense, action, character development, and plot; but the overall feeling it left me with was warm and adorable. 
 The story is really great, like I said, action, suspense, nail-biting, and late night reading to find out what on earth went wrong this time, are all essential parts of the plot. 
 The writing does a good job of weaving the reader in and out of each predicament and changes smoothly from an endearing, heart-touching moment, to a hilarious mishap, to hair-rising danger all in a single chapter.
 The characters were really great, full of development, potential, and curious traits, they were all tons of fun! I would suggest this book to fans of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and The Girl Who Could Fly.

Content: Some danger and frightening situations. A small amount of violence. All in all, a clean book for most ages and a delightful read for all!
