The Mysterious Benedict Society
By Trenton Lee Stewart

Cliff-hangers

"Hey i can't know every word mr.smarty for crying out loud, how-" "No, 'ignominious' means shameful."
Authors Craft:
Exploding the moment
Example: down, down the winding passage they went, though darkness and spider webs and dripping water, until at last they emerged into a cold wind, brilliant sunlight and the sound of waves breaking on rocks. they were on the far side of the island, the side opposite the bridge. in the distance a flat bottom motorboat lay beached on a strip of sand scarely wide enough to accommodate it.
Authors Craft:
Surprise
Example: "thats it" he repeated, this time in an excited whisper. "Both places at once! Sticky whats the sigh for the Gemini?" "sign of the twin," sticky said offhandedly. his eyes widened. "wait a minute!" "Thats right," said Reynie. "I think Mr.Benedict has a long lost brother.
