The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey

Review Date: 05/24/2018 Stewart, Trenton Lee Series: The Mysterious Benedict Society
Generally Acceptable
Grades: 5 - 8
Children go on a voyage to save their friends. A lot of non-romantic negiah between friends, eg: a hug when they are happy to see each other, taking a hand to save a friend, etc. One sentence unimportant mention that one of the boys briefly had a girlfriend (p. 34). Girl calls newly found father by first name because that's what she called him before she knew the truth. Minor language: stupid, jerk.
