Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children
by
Ransom Riggs

Summary- 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. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

My Rating-

My Review- What an amazingly peculiar book. I have quite an active imagination when it comes to picturing charaters in books but the vintage photography in this book added so much more to the story! Rich descriptions make you feel like you are right there on the island with Jacob. This story has just the right amount of fantasy, adventure and intrigue with a touch of a love story thrown in. This book seems geared toward a young adult audience but I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quick interesting read.
