When an unexplained blackout engulfs Stonetown, Benedict Society members Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance follow clues on an adventure that threatens to separate them from their families, friends, and even one another.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
In a city called Stonetown, on the third floor of an old, gray-stoned house, a boy named Reynie Muldoon was considering his options. He was locked inside an uncomfortably warm room, and the only way out was to make an unpleasant decision. Worse, locked in the room with him - and none too happy about it - was a particularly outspoken four-year-old named Constance Contraire, who from the outset of their confinement had been reciting ill-tempered poems to express her displeasure. Reynie, though three times Constace's age and probably fifty times as patient, was beginning to feel ill-tempered himself. He had the hot room
and the cranky girl to endure. Constance couldn't possibly want out more than he did. The problem was what it would cost.
