Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling series!
book reminded me of some of the children’s books
I grew up with, like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
and The Phantom Tollbooth.’ RICK RIORDAN, author of
the PERCY JACKSON series
When a peculiar advertisement
appears in the newspaper for children to take part in a secret
mission, children everywhere sit a series of mysterious tests.
In the end, just four children succeed: Reynie, Kate, Sticky and
Constance. They have three things in common: they are all honest,
all remarkably talented and all orphans. They must go undercover
at the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened where the only
rule is that there are no rules. There they must work as a team
to save not only themselves, but also the world outside the walls.
