Book Description:“Are you a gifted child looking for special opportunities?” ad attracts dozens for mind-bending tests readers may try. Only two boys and two girls succeed for a secret mission, undercover and underground into hidden tunnels. At the Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened, the only rule is – there are no rules.

I have to just first say that this book has such an awesome cover! (If I had read it in February it would have definitely been my pick for my monthly motif challenge of cover love). Truly though it is just so fun and so many little details to look at.

I thought the plot of this book was well done, it is definitely geared towards a younger crowd than me, however I still really enjoyed it and want to finish the series and find out what happens to them! I thought it was a unique idea picking younger kids through a series of weird tests to find the right combination to basically save the world. The way children were used as messengers to brainwash people was definitely unique. So it was children are helping make the problem, without really knowing it, and children are picked to help solve the problem.

I thought the characters were a lot of fun. All four children had a unique personality with weird traits and those traits were brought to light throughout the story. I liked that you got a little background on each of them and that you also watched them grow as the story went on. You also got to see some happy conclusions at the end of this book for each of them and it definitely makes you wonder what is going to happen to them in the next book. There is also the twist with Constance that I did not see coming!

Overall the writing was well done, I really liked that there were pictures with each chapter and that the chapter titles were unique and not just 1, 2, 3, etc. I would definitely recommend this book and can’t wait to finish reading the series.
