Review by: Jenny
Rating by opinion: 5 out of 5
This book all starts out with a newspaper ad that turns into a suspenseful adventure. The Mysterious Benedict Society is about a genius boy orphan named Renie who decides to take the test advertised in the newspaper. Soon after the test he finds out that he passes, but he also finds out many other things. The test he took wasn’t even for a school. It was for a secret society. The man leading the society is trying to take down his evil brother and thwart his evil plans. The most surprising part is that Renie and three other odd, but interesting companions, will be the ones risking their lives to do so.
I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. It is a suspenseful, action packed adventure that will have you turning the pages like crazy. If you like suspense, mystery and adventure you’ll love this book! It’s for ages 8 and up.
