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!
