Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 
Good science fiction never fails to grasp the reader and hold them tightly until the story is over, and sometimes longer than that. If you are a sci-fi fan, The Mysterious Benedict Society, by Trenton Lee Stewart, won’t disappoint you. It will captivate you immediately with its exciting plot. You won’t be able to put it down, because of Stewart’s cleverly-placed surprises that you will run into throughout the story when you least expect them. Thrilling foreshadowing only adds to the suspense. Every character is unique and interesting. Stewart does an excellent job challenging the characters, and also the reader, with tricky puzzles and riddles. Some sci-fi books are breathtaking when you first read them, but the thrill often ends with the story. In contrast, The Mysterious Benedict Society’s message of children’s importance to the world will not soon be forgotten. This is definitely a book worth reading. I recommend it to everyone, especially older kids and sci-fi fans. If you enjoy The Mysterious Benedict Society, you'll probably like the sequel, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey.
