Published: June 7th, 2011
Book Series: Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1
Reading Format: Hardcover
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
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.
So very happy I finally got the chance to read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – before seeing the film, of course. Honestly, I have been wanting to get my hands on this trilogy for the longest time. Although, when I first saw this book at the bookstore I was a little hesitant due to the fact that this is a combination of text and vintage pictures. I’m possibly the only one on this planet who is not fond of pictures and texts in a book.
Although, yes, one of my favorite books has the same thing, but it is also a children’s book. Anyway, I am very surprised how much I enjoyed the story and the characters so much.
