Synopsis

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And 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 who once lived here-one of whom was his own grandfather-were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate 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.

    AMAZING!

    WOW! What a book! Even though it is a short novel -eleven chapters- it is such a fascinating, interesting, jaw-dropping, adventurous book that I could not put down ! The story line is so unique and different it makes you want to continue reading. I cannot wait to purchase the second book to continue and find out what happens. Most definitely worth reading !

    Inspiring and entertaining

    This book reminded me of the immensely magical and mystical quality of the world we live in. Things are rarely as ordinary as they seem. I enjoyed the cinematic style. I found the photographic inspiration both original and engaging. A truly enjoyable read.

    5 Stars All the Way!

    I absolutely enjoyed this book! Found out as I was half through that its classed as a young adult novel, well I am 53 yrs young and loved every minute of it! The only drag for me now is that we have to wait till January 2014 for the sequel.... Ohhhhh I'm waiting with baited breath! :)

    Definitely a story for tweens. The characters are fun & the hero is likeable. Photos are reminscent of those one can find in your grandparents trunks in the attic
