The Mysterious Benedict Society

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

It’s so hard to find really good middle grade books. In an effort to write a story that is “on their level,” most of them are poorly written, have overly simplistic plots, and canned, characterless characters.

At last, I’ve found one that dares to assume our kids aren’t stupid!

The Mysterious Benedict Society is what I think middle grade lit should be. The plot is smart. The characters have depth and show growth. The dialogue is fun and snappy. All that, yet the jokes remain appropriate, the challenges relatable, and the themes applicable.

A great find. Perfect for all ages.

Happy reading!
