Review : Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children


Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
Ransom Riggs
Quirk Books
A horrific family tragedy sends Jacob 16 to a remote island off Wales, to the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, where he finds unusual old photographs. The children, one his grandfather, were more than peculiar, perhaps dangerous, quarantined for good reason - and maybe still alive.
My Review: If you have not read this book what are you waiting for. This book was amazing. I could not put it down and I can not wait for the next one. I was blown away by this book. Jacob's grandfather was an eccentric old man who like to tell stories of his youth, but as Jacob grows up he realizes his grandfathers stories can not be true. Levitating girls and invisible boy just don't exist. After a horrifying event Jacob's family thinks he needs help dealing with what has happened and hope a trip to his grandfathers childhood home will help him deal better and stop the nightmares he has been having. Jacob also thinks he will discover the truth behind the stories and the mysterious letter he discovered in his grandfathers possession. Jacob soon learns that fact is stranger than fiction and discovers the truth about himself. This book was fast paced and edge of your seat thriller. The pictures in this book just bring it to life that much more. I can't wait for the next installment in this story. I am also going to have my kids read this and recommending it to a number of people I work with that love a captivating story with twist and turns.
