From the Publisher
Before there was a Mysterious Benedict Society, there was
simply a boy named Nicholas Benedict. Meet the boy who started it
Nine-year-old Nicholas Benedict has more problems than most
children his age. Not only is he an orphan with an unfortunate
nose, but he also has narcolepsy, a condition that gives him
terrible nightmares and makes him fall asleep at the worst possible
moments. Now he''s being sent to a new orphanage, where he will
encounter vicious bullies, selfish adults, strange circumstances --
and a mystery that could change his life forever. Luckily, he has
one important thing in his favor: He''s a genius.
On his quest to solve the mystery, Nicholas finds enemies around
every corner, but also friends in unexpected places -- and
discovers along the way that the greatest puzzle of all is himself.
