Read-a-likes !

Hello all

I have read The Mysterious Benedict Society series by Trenton Lee Stewart and I loved it! It is refreshing to read a book  featuring dynamic children protagonists which  has no magical aspects  in it. In The Mysterious Benedict Society  the children are recruited by adults to save the world based on their unusual abilities. If  you have read this series and loved it and are looking for something similar than I have just the thing! The Ability by M.M. Vaughn also feature extraordinary children who at the age of twelve have the heighten ability to do and learn remarkable things with their minds.  These children with “the ability” are recruited to save various facility members from an old institution,who are being attacked through their minds. Though The Ability is darker in tone than The Mysterious Benedict Society,  they  share in common a mystery  and the need for adults to be saved. Interested? Please check it out at your nearest library. Enjoy!

  1. I read this series a few years ago and fell in love with it. What a great series that not only pulls you in but has moments when you as a reader can participate. I thought it’s was great enough to suggest to a few friends with children the book reading age.
