A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

Overall Thoughts: WOW. I don’t know what I originally thought. . .maybe that this book would be just some gothic horror story based on the cover/title? That couldn’t be further from the truth! It was a truly enjoyable time travelling thriller with supernatural elements that made this one a completely unique reading experience and the pictures adding so much more to the story! To think someone built an entire book around a few pictures is impressive. I wish I had half that imagination.
