I just read a series of books called The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.
I have really loved the way he writes and also (FYI, these books are kind of mystery books), Trenton Lee Stewart opens up so many strings in these books and by the end of each book, each one has been resolved and he NEVER leaves you hanging.
His story ideas are SO original. I love them
He has inspired me to write just like that.
Life is short, smile while you still have teeth!
