The Mysterious Benedict Society is by Trenton Lee Stewart. The opening book in a charming new series. When an add appears in a local newspaper asking gifted children to take a series of tests, four very special children find themselves embroiled in the adventure of their lives. They become part of the Mysterious Benedict Society and must go undercover in an institute for gifted children that may be involved in more than education. A great opening to a promising new series.
