Miss Perumal and Reynie were in the library. Miss Perumal saw an ad for gifted children to take a test. She showed it to Reynie, and he was thinking of taking it but he doubt himslef.
Reynie passed the test and on his way to the second building he met a girl named Rhonda. He helped her with her pencil. So she thought she could help him with the answers. She gave him the answers, but he flicked it off because he didn't want to cheat.
Reynie met Sticky and Kate. They all wanted to pass the test,but it was nearly impossible. So they were all sent back to redo it.
The kids finally get to meet Mr.Benedict but as they also meet a new member to the team. Her name is Constance. As they all start doing their missions they realize that Constance is really lazy. So they wonder why she's in the team. The kids send Reynie to ask why she's in the team, but Mr.Benedict didn't have time to explain. So they will just have to get along.
The kids wanted to investigate, but they had to stay low profile. So they had to go through the vents.
Kate wanted to find out what Martina and SQ were talking about. But she got washed down a tunnel. So she almost got in danger by an encountering of a shark.
