The Mysterious Benedict Society, Book 1

Finished on: May 30, 2015

My Rating: ★★★★☆

My Review:

What fun! And also: how weird! For a middle grade book, this one was awfully long. But it wasn’t quite like anything else I’ve read, which was very refreshing!

I knew Constance would probably end up playing a pivotal role, to justify all her annoying behaviors early on, but I didn’t expect the reveal at the end — and find it kind of hard to believe that no one had guessed her age already.

I look forward to seeing what kind of trouble the society gets itself into in the next book!
