The Mysterious Benedict Society - Trenton Lee Stewart

This is a very appealing book, I don't know if I would consider it YA, but never the less it was very good. Four very gifted children are set on a secret mission to save the world, face pace, exciting, with a little mystery thrown in for good measure. This book would definitely appeal to both sex's, I would have to give it a A- one to consider....maybe.

I thought it was an interesting and unique story. That being said, I don't think it's a great Thumbs Up book. Not sure how much teen appeal there is. So I think I'm NAY - for lack of teen appeal; not because of the story/writing.

NAY from me, too. It just feels way too young to hold the interest of teens, though I'd gladly recommend it to tweens or younger.

Loved this book for children. Not in the running for me, though, for a teen award. nay.

I have to go against the grain here. I took the audio of this book with me on my Christmas roadtrip and just loved it. I think of it as Lemony Snicket for the older crowd. YAY.
